Terrebonne Parish Personal Injury Accident Injury Attorney

Should I Contact a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Claim?

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  Louisiana personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess.  Make arrangements to meet for a free consultation at any of our 7 personal injury law offices, or contact us toll- free at 1-877-234-7573.

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:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Wrongful death

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 Terrebonne Parish 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.

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.
