While we see the aftermath of car accidents on our daily commutes, there are things we don’t see.

Did someone else cause your car accident?
If you’ve been in any wrecks, you know one of the first things the authorities will try to do is assign blame. If you’re planning on filing a personal injury claim, another party must be at fault for the accident. The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can help you work out who was at fault.
Some cases are very easy to determine, like getting hit by a speeding or drunk driver. Other cases aren’t so easy. If the other driver or their insurance contests your version of events, things get more complicated. Common accident causes like distracted drivers can be tricky to link to negligence. You need to establish proof, and that can be difficult to do on your own.
Sometimes car accidents only involve one car. In these cases, there can still be another negligent party besides you. The Baton Rouge region is known for snarled traffic and roadside construction than never ends. Our legal staff can help you tell if the construction zone was or highway conditions were to blame.
Some of the most common causes of car wrecks that we see are:
- Drunk Driving
- Aggressive Lane Changes
