Baton Rouge Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycle Accident Injuries and Claims in Baton Rouge

It's no secret that there are more automobiles on the road than bicycles. Although bicycle use is mainly limited to exercise, hobby or close-proximity travel, bicyclists have rights on the road and others sharing the roads and streets often ignore these rights. As much as motor vehicle drivers may be aware that a bicyclist has some right to the road, they often ignore the guidelines that every driver should follow to maintain proper safety when bicycles and motor automobiles share the road. As children use bikes as their main mode of transportation, there are many tragic cases of injury or loss of life involving young people who are innocent and suddenly hit by a car or truck at no fault of their own.

Experienced Injury Attorney in Baton Rouge

Some of the most common personal injuries occur in bicycle accidents where the driver of a motor vehicle clips the bicyclist while riding on the side of the road, or turns into the path of a bicyclist crossing an intersection. Responsible bicyclists wear protection such as helmets, elbow-pads and knee-pads. These measures are meant to protect a bicyclist in a fall, but provide little protection in the event of a collision with a car or truck. Victims of bicycle accidents often suffer broken bones, severe head trauma resulting in head or brain injury, or internal injuries.

  • Is adoption a long process?
    • Each adopted child has different circumstances. There are several types of adoptions that could take place, including a stepparent adoption, a private adoption or a standard adoption. Each has its own specific challenges. With the help of my firm, we will speed the process through the system as quickly as we can so that you can begin your new family and move forward with starting life together.

  • Isn't divorce expensive?

    A contested divorce can get expensive due to the necessity to attend trial, and document the case to present in court. Those who can work out their agreements prior to court and settle them with negotiations can not only save a lot of money, they avoid the serious stress of a court trial and exposing your personal business in court. In either case, I will help you bring the issue to a resolution with the least amount of stress, whether in a contested or uncontested divorce. I make every effort to make my services affordable so that you can have high quality legal counsel to support your case.

  • How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?

    A personal injury accident is the result of the negligent, reckless or careless action of another. An accident that occurs from the use of a dangerous or defective product is an example of a personal injury accident. Another example is a drunk driver who causes a car collision with injuries or fatalities. In the case of negligence, the victim may be eligible for monetary compensation that can include lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Beau Layfield and The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can represent a client in court and negotiate with insurance companies to pursue the maximum possible compensation.

  • Do I have to go to court in order to obtain a divorce?

    Filing divorce papers with a court is the only way you will obtain a legal separation from your spouse. This applies to any other form of legal separation, including a marriage annulment. Aside from the divorce decree itself, a court is able to assist in settling other matters related to divorce, which include child custody and the distribution of marital assets.

  • Do I need a lawyer in a personal injury claim?
    • Insurance company studies show that those who have legal representation in their case recover an average of 3.5 times more than those who try to get the issue resolved on their own. Insurance companies do not like to pay out large settlements, and frequently move fast with an offer, within days of a car accident or other serious injury accident. If you accept this early offer, it can be a terrible mistake; you may later require more medical treatment, or not recover in the expected amount of time, or could experience complications. I will carefully evaluate your injury case and ensure that we are pursuing every type of damage that could be claimed in your case. It is very important that you have legal counsel that will protect your right to fair compensation, and I will fight for fair treatment for you and your family. A personal injury lawyer is imperative if you suffered serious injuries. I am a Louisiana attorney that is interested in helping your resolve these issues.
