Baton Rouge Injury Lawyer – Fighting for Your Rights

Negligent, careless or reckless drivers contribute to most auto collisions and the injuries to other drivers or occupants. The main cause of car accidents is driver distraction. Texting while driving, using cell phones or electronic devices, eating, talking with passengers or other distractions can divert the attention of the driver from the road. Other contributing factors in car accidents are speeding, traffic violations, diver fatigue, bad road conditions, and slippery or wet roadways from rain or ice, tire blowout, or mechanical failure. Drunk driving accidents or a driver under the influence of drugs are responsible for many significant injuries and fatalities in Baton Rouge, and must be held accountable for their actions.

Drivers are required to have auto insurance to cover the cost of property damage and medical expenses in the event the driver is liable in a traffic collision. An injury attorney can represent car accident victims and protect their rights to compensation for injuries following the accident. An insurance settlement offer may not fully compensate a victim considering the amount of mental, emotional and physical suffering received in a car accident. Compensation may be available in the form of damages for lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering. For information about car accidents and financial compensation, make an appointment today with Beau Layfield of The Layfield Law Firm, LLC for a consultation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • How much money can I expect in a settlement?
    Each personal injury accident is different and the worth of the injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of injuries and disability. Insurance companies have specific calculations they use when assigning a monetary value to the pain and suffering resulting a personal injury causing accident. The firm will protect your right to compensation and pursue legal action if necessary.

    Before settling an insurance claim, contact The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to review your case. They can zealously protect your right to fair and full compensation, and your case will be given the focus and priority it deserves.

  • How will child support be calculated?
    Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
    • the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
    • the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
    • the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
    • the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
  • 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.
