    Opelousas La Personal Injury Attorney

    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.  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.

    Personal injury involves injury to an individual. Any time a legal obligation or responsibility is violated, a personal injury claim can potentially arise. For example, an injured victim could file a personal injury lawsuit if he or she was hurt in the following situations:

    1- Auto accidents
    2- Truck accidents
    3- Motorcycle accidents
    4- Bicycle accidents
    5- Pedestrian accidents
    6- Dog bites
    7- Wrongful death

    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.

    Our Louisiana personal injury lawyers at the law office of L. Clayton Burgess have built a practice based on personal injury litigation and on representing the rights of injured victims.

    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. It is possible to lose your right to file a lawsuit over the incident if you miss the one-year time frame.

    The experienced personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have helped many  individuals across Louisiana and Texas get the results they deserve. We represent individuals and families for their car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, attorney malpractice and wrongful death. Please contact us to discuss your case. You will speak with a lawyer for free who can answer your questions and inform you of your rights.

    In 2014, 1165 people were injured as a direct result of 676 vehicular accidents in St. Landry Parish.
