Personal injury 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.
Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney like those with the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. We understand how insurance companies and their lawyers think. Insurance companies are interested in minimizing the amount of money they pay in all cases involving a serious injury or death.
The job of insurance company attorneys is to make sure your recovery —no matter your personal injury—is as low as possible. That may not be fair, but it’s how they operate. We know their tactics, and we will do our best to protect the rights of you and your family in throughout the lawsuit or settlement negotiation. We stand up for personal injury victims.
The most important factor is determining whether someone was negligent. A person who was unreasonably careless can be considered negligent and in breach of a legal duty. This gives rise to a personal injury claim.
