Terms And Conditions
Welcome to our website. These are the terms and conditions governing our company website. Please read them carefully.
Last Modified May 19th, 2017.
OVERVIEW AND USAGE
A. No Attorney-Client Relationship
Contacting the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess does not immediately create an attorney-client relationship. This includes email, phone calls, website submissions, written correspondence, and speaking with one of our employees or attorneys. Reading content on our website does not count either. We encourage anyone with questions about their legal situation to contact us, but we also want to make sure you understand how legal representation works.
In order to be accepted as a client by an attorney, there are specific steps that need to be taken. An attorney must personally review your legal circumstances before they agree to represent you. During this discussion, you and the attorney will review the terms of legal representation and see if you come to a mutual agreement. If the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess decides to represent you, you will be asked to sign a Representation Agreement.
B. Informational Purposes Only
Our website is intended for information and entertainment purposes only. While we aim to provide our clients (and prospective clients) with the best information we can, the content on this website is not legal advice. We present it as basic guide to accident and personal injury law. Our legal definitions and explanations are simplified and intended as a starting point for personal research. Many legal terms have an everyday, common sense meaning that is different from what they mean in law. Because of this, the information on this website is broad and generalized.
Law is also a complex and constantly changing field. Additionally, it is important to remember that every legal case is unique. A web page cannot cover the whole of present-day legal practices. None of the information you find on the Internet is a substitute for legal counsel. Legal decisions should be made when consulting with a licensed attorney who specializes in your situation. If you need legal advice, please contact an attorney.
C. Medical Advice
Content on this website is not intended as professional medical advice. The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess are legal professionals, not medical doctors. A licensed health care provider or a physician are the only people who can treat and diagnose medical conditions. You should never delay treatment or ignore professional medical advice based on the content in this website. Nor should you choose procedures or tests based on content in this website. If you are having a medical emergency, immediately call 911, seek out a doctor, or go to the emergency room.
