FLATTMANN FILES “Quality Is No Accident”

March 2020

FROM THE DESK OF Grady Flattmann

In Louisiana, victims of car accidents have one year from the date of the wreck to resolve their claimor file a lawsuit in order to preserve their rights. This is the shortest statute of limitations in the nation. By comparison, in Mississippi, victims have three years to resolve claims before having to file a lawsuit. Inmy practice, a majority of car accident claims can be resolved within a year, without the need for a lawsuit. However, here are examples of a few instances where filing a lawsuit is unavoidable. WAITING UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO CALL US: People get busy and a year passes quickly. The insurance company will not be calling to remind you of the one-year deadline. If a client comes to us with little time remaining, we have no choice but to file a lawsuit to protect their claims. OUR CLIENT IS STILL SUFFERING: If a client’s injuries are so severe that they continue to require medical treatment beyond the one- year anniversary of an accident, their claims are ongoing and the only optionmay be to file a lawsuit in order to protect their claims moving forward.

THANK YOU, JAMES MADISON Celebrating a Life of Service

Today, Madison is most well-known for co- writing the U.S. Constitution. In fact, so many of Madison’s ideas made it into the document that he is widely credited with being the father of the Constitution. If it were not for Madison, the Constitution might have never been ratified. To garner widespread support for the Constitution, Madison co-wrote 85 letters to the public with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay that explained the political philosophy underpinning the Constitution and defended its contents. Known as“The Federalist Papers,”these letters are still celebrated as some of the most groundbreaking political

As a full-grown man, James Madison stood just 5 feet, 4 inches tall. He had a health condition that, while never diagnosed, bore a resemblance to epilepsy, and he weighed only 100 pounds. He was so soft-spoken that his speeches were often difficult to hear, and he was frequently described as shy and quiet. Despite those qualities, Madison, whose birthday we celebrate on March 16, went on to become the fourth president of the United States. He held office for two terms, and, during that time, he helped establish America as a force to be reckoned with. For example, he led us through theWar of 1812, which was our first war as an independent nation.
