We are a Louisiana based personal injury law firm. Our team of skilled attorneys will work to help get you the compensation you deserve for your accident injury claim.

Choosing the right law firm is crucial to getting you the best possible settlement. There are hundreds of lawyers to choose from, and they all say they can get you the most money for your case. Personal injury law can be complex and frustrating; there are complicated legal procedures, excessive amounts of paperwork, and confusing medical terms. Our attorneys have experience in all manner of injury cases. We can tell you from the start whether or not it is worth pursuing legal action on your case. We won’t waste your time.

A personal injury claim may be justified in Louisiana if he or she was hurt in the following situations:

  • Auto, Truck, Motorcycle and Bicycle accidents
  • Maritime or boat accident
  • Slip and Fall accidents
  • Construction accident
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Dog bites
  • A dangerous, defective, or improperly labeled product
  • Crime that resulted in injury or death

Any other kind of accident or incident that caused injury due to the negligence or misconduct of someone else.

Personal injury laws in Louisiana allow injured victims to file civil lawsuits against people, companies or government entities whose acts or omissions cause harm. Cases can be resolved in court or through a settlement negotiation, but regardless, you should have a knowledgeable legal advocate representing you, such as the experienced personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess.

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.

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 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.

As personal injury lawyers, we are accustomed to working with unscrupulous insurance companies and are familiar with their tactics. Our lawyers will not be pressured into settling a case for an unsatisfactory amount. If an acceptable settlement cannot be negotiated, we have years of trial expertise to achieve the best possible verdict in your favor.
