Personal injury law involves legal disputes. Specifically, disputes where the negligence of one party causes harm to another. The plaintiff must prove that the defendant acted negligently and caused injury.
Financial compensation is an area that concerns many of our clients. Awards are for compensation or damages. They’re so people can recover lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Lastly, when filing a legal claim, there is a statue of limitations. In Louisiana, this is one year from the day of the occurrence of the incident. A personal injury lawyer is helpful in checking the length of the limitations period.
A skilled attorney will be able to access your individual situation. Then make recommendations if you should pursue a case. They will also consider the execution of the case.

The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess specialize in accident law and personal injury law. But, we know that every case is unique and sometimes doesn’t fall into a neat category. We can’t cover every possible variant of the law on our web page. So, if you don’t see it listed here, feel free to contact our office about your specific legal issue.

 

Police Brutality

Most police officers are ethical. But, police officers also have control over the people they interact with. An abuse of this power is particularly bad. Police misconduct has many different forms, including:

  • Unnecessary physical violence
  • Unnecessary strip searches
  • Sexual assault
  • Coercion, blackmail or other uses of police power to force you into doing something you don’t want to do
  • Racial profiling

 

Civil Rights and Employment

Discrimination happens when there is a denial of an individual’s civil rights. Employment discrimination laws prevent employers from discriminatory practices in:
  • job assignment
  • compensation
  • promotion
  • hiring
  • termination

 

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination that violates a person’s civil rights. This harassment can create a hostile work environment for the victim. Anyone can experience sexual harassment, not only women. Harassers are liable in both criminal and civil cases.

 

Whistleblower

A whistleblower is a person who reports misconduct in an organization. Fraud, corruption, and legal violations are common causes of whistleblowing. Intimidation and retaliation happen in cases like these. All calls to our office are confidential.  So don’t hesitate to get the help you need.

 

Class Action

A class action lawsuit is where a large group of people are similarly injured. Securities class actions are investment fraud cases. Product liability or personal injury class actions involve a defective product. Consumer class actions involve illegal charges on bills. Sometimes failure to follow consumer protection laws. Employment class actions vary. Most are cases of unpaid overtime, failure to provide breaks, or workplace discrimination.
