The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have practiced personal injury law for over 20 years. Our attorneys specialize in personal injury claims. These are people who have injuries due to the negligent actions of others.
We give each client individual attention and guidance. We understand how financial compensation works. Whether it’s for medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damages or lost wages. Our personal injury lawyers manage all phases of our clients’ claims. From the initial investigation, and through the trial. If necessary, to appellate proceedings.

We represent clients in all types of injury cases. Our practice areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Car accidents:

    Our personal injury lawyers handle cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, bike accidents, pedestrian accidents and other auto accident claims. A car accident case needs an attorney with the skills to manage insurance companies.

  • Truck accidents:

    Our attorneys specialize in commercial vehicle accident claims. Trucking accidents are complex and need experienced attorneys. A lot of factors come in to play after an 18 wheeler accident. Many different entities are at fault in a trucking accident.

  • Medical malpractice:

    Are you hurt due to the negligence of a doctor, nurse or another medical professional? Our attorneys can help. We have handled cases involving surgical errors, nursing home abuse, and prescription errors.

  • Personal Injury:

    Any injury that results from the negligence of another needs a lawyer. We help clients with slip and fall accidents, animal bites, and product liabilities.

  • Offshore injuries:

    Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered serious injuries working offshore. This includes oilfield vessels and commercial fishing boats. There are very specific laws in place governing Maritime Injuries.

  • Wrongful death:

    If someone you loved has died due to another person’s negligence, our lawyers can help. You need full compensation. Medical expenses, funeral costs and loss of income are a burden you shouldn’t have to bear.
