DENHAM SPRINGS LA PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

DENHAM SPRINGS LA PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

“Personal injury” cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. 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. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.

 At the core of the personal injury area of the law is the old legal concept of “wrongful conduct”. Auto accidents and slip and fall cases are common examples, but personal injury also includes motorcycle and truck accidents, construction accidents and defective conditions of property. Medical malpractice, products liability and workers compensation are also sub-specialties of the personal injury area.

What is a Statute of Limitations?

Plaintiffs have a limited time in which to file a lawsuit, called a “statute of limitations.” In Louisiana, this deadline falls one year after the date of the accident in most cases.  

Personal injury laws in Louisiana allow injured victims to file civil lawsuits against people, companies or government entities whose acts or omissions cause harm. The Louisiana Law Firm of L. Clayton Burgess is committed to representing those who have been seriously hurt or suffered a wrongful death involving someone else’s negligence or intentional actions.
