Personal injury law takes into account situations in which a person is hurt physically, emotionally, and mentally usually due to the negligence or careless act of someone else. A personal injury claim is initiated when an injured person (plaintiff) sues a person or business (defendant).

To pursue personal injury compensation successfully, it’s important to prove that someone else was at fault. The compensation amount depends on the nature of injury and sufferings caused as a result of that injury.

At the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess, our Lafayette Personal Injury Attorney  have a wealth of experience in pursuing all types of accident and wrongful death claims.

Mr. Burgess is a great attorney and litigator. When I was injured on the job he fought for me and made sure that I received what was fair compensation for my injury. He was tough and aggressive and I was glad he was on my side!
