St Charles Parish Personal Injury Attorney

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.
  • If any of the above personal injuries or accidents resulted in death, please note that you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

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.

While there are many different areas of personal injury law they are not exclusive. In other words you can be on the job and be involved in a car accident. As such, you would have claims with both workers compensation and the “at fault” drivers insurance. 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. We understand how important your case is and we will take the time to meet with you personally to explain the steps needed to protect yourself and loved ones who have suffered personal injuries. We offer free initial consultations, so you can ask all of your questions and get the help you need.

When you or a loved one has been injured you want the best personal injury lawyer to handle the case. Personal injury involves injury to an individual. This area of law allows an injured person to sue in a private action called a civil action, known in the legal community as a tort action. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort. 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.

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.
