At the core of the personal injury area of the law is the old legal concept of “wrongful conduct”. Auto accidents and slip and fall cases are common examples, but personal injury also includes motorcycle and truck accidents, construction accidents and defective conditions of property. L. Clayton Burgess has built a practice based on personal injury litigation and on representing the rights of injured victims.
Personal injury law is a very broad term that applies to any situation where one person’s conduct causes physical or psychological harm to another. It could be an injury caused by a car crash, a fall of a foreign substance at a shopping mall, a bite from a neighbor’s vicious dog or an open manhole in the street.
The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. An experienced Franklin personal injury attorney can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.
Louisiana laws set a deadline, or “statute of limitations,” on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit in court after an injury. In Louisiana, this deadline falls one year after the date of the accident in most cases.
