Truck Accidents

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, there are a number of parties, including the truck driver and their employer, who may be liable for your losses; however, it is not uncommon for these parties to deny fault or liability for a crash.

The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess will help you determine whether you have a valid claim and how your case will be presented. An experienced Franklin trucking accident attorney can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.

The most common causes of truck accidents are driver error prior to and during the trip, mechanical failures, weather conditions, road design, and traffic signal failures. Even though large trucks are only responsible for 3% of injury-causing motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents typically cause much greater harm than ordinary traffic accidents due to the large size and heavy weight of most trucks.

Personal Injury

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.

Personal injury and wrongful death cases can be difficult emotionally and financially. For that reason, it’s important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer standing up for you and asserting your legal rights. We pride ourselves on handling every aspect of your case with utmost professionalism and experience so that you can be free to concentrate on getting well.

In 2015, 633 people were injured as a direct result of 363 vehicular accidents. Compare to:

2014, 708 people were injured as a direct result of 423 vehicular accidents in St. Mary Parish.
