What Can I Recover?

The law provides we can recover the following for you:

  • Principal and interest from date of filing a suit
  • Legal interest from the date of filing to debt recovery
  • Filing costs
  • Attorney fees

In Louisiana, you may begin the debt collection process 30 days after giving final written notice with an invoice to the debtor. You then have 3 years to file a lawsuit. After that, your legal protections are different. That is why it is important to contact us as soon as possible.

 

Open Accounts vs Breach of Contract

An open account is a balance owed to an individual for a transaction or service. In Louisiana, no written contract is necessary to consider an account open. For instance, a mechanic who repairs a vehicle and is not paid for that service may have an open account with the owner of that vehicle.

A breach of contract means that an individual has not paid an amount put forth in a legal document. For example, if someone did not pay their car insurance bill, the insurer could take them to court for a breach of contract.

There are legal differences in the two types of debt that you can read more about in this blog post. We can help you collect money you are rightfully owed from both types.
