DONALDSONVILLE LA PERSONAL 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 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.

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.

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.
