Car Accidents

Carencro (historically French: St.-Pierre) is a small city in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana. It is a suburb of the nearby city of Lafayette. The population was 6,120 at the 2000 census. Its name comes from the Cajun French word for buzzard: the spot was one where large flocks of buzzards roosted in the bald cypress trees. The name means “carrion crow.”

Carencro is part of the Lafayette Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Few European people settled in the Carencro area (around Lafayette) until the coming of the Acadian refugees in the 18th century. Some of the Acadians transported in 1765 to the Attakapas district were given lands along Bayou Carencro, although probably not in what is now the town of Carencro. At that time, Jean and Marin Mouton, Charles Peck, Louis Pierre Arceneaux and others began to establish vacheries in the vicinity.

Personal Injury

Are you seeking justice for the injuries and damages you have suffered because someone else caused an accident? Have you been injured at work?

Wrongful Death

Have you lost a loved one due to negligence?

A wrongful death occurs when an individual dies as the result of another party’s negligent or unjust acts such as from a car accident death or work job death or other. Families of wrongful death victims may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party.

Losing a loved can be a devastating and traumatic experience, especially if the cause of death could have been prevented.  The Carencro wrongful death attorneys at the law offices of L. Clayton Burgess have helped many families deal with the tragedy of the sudden loss of a wife, husband, father, mother, brother, sister, child or member of the family. We can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.

Many times, wrongful death will go undiscovered without a thorough and comprehensive investigation. Our experienced wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess will be able to investigate the victim’s death and determine if the four elements of wrongful death are present.

The elements include:

the conduct of the individual that caused the victim’s death;

the individual was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death;

the victim has surviving family or beneficiaries;

the victim’s death resulted in financial damages.

If all of these elements are present, the family will have the legal standing necessary to file a wrongful death lawsuit. While a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring back their loved one, this lawsuit can help the family make certain they are financially stable after their loved one’s untimely demise.

Facing lost income, costly medical bills, final expenses or other end of life care costs as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing are devastating, and our Louisiana team of wrongful death accident attorneys will work with you to recover compensation so you can focus on what is important.

In 2015, there were  29 fatalities as a direct result of 28 fatal vehicular accidents. Compare to:
