Baton Rouge Product Liability Attorney

Defective Products and Injury Claims in Baton Rouge

Any manufacturer that provides goods to consumers in the USA is required to protect the safety of the users. Extensive testing with regard to side effects of drugs, the safety of the materials used to manufacture goods and other safety regulations are in place at a federal level. In some cases, a commercial product is tested and considered safe, and later serious problems arise that were unexpected with regard to design or other problem. Some commercial products result in serious injury, illness or death after they have reached the market. This can include pharmaceutical drugs, toys, automobiles, automobile parts or any other commercial product. If a defective product has injured you or a loved one, it is crucial that you act quickly and contact The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to speak with Beau Layfield of The Layfield Law Firm, a Baton Rouge injury lawyer.

Legal Guidance from a Baton Rouge Product Liability Lawyer

Most of our commercial products are now produced overseas. This can lead to serious problems as the profit motive and lack of regulation can lead to shoddy workmanship, corrupted or unhygienic conditions in manufacturing and many other problems, endangering those who later buy the product on the open market. The federal government cannot inspect every item that enters the country, and many very dangerous and deadly products have entered our country and resulted in serious injury or harm to end users. In such a case, a product liability claim must be filed against the corporation or retailer that supplied the goods to the consumer.

These cases are often complex and require extensive documentation and evidence. It may be necessary to call upon experts to support the claim, and to provide scientific evidence of the defective product. Large corporations, such as auto parts manufacturers or pharmaceutical companies have high-powered attorneys to fend off potential lawsuits. When going up against a large corporate entity in a personal injury claim, it is necessary to have an equally talented and professional attorney to seek compensation for the damages in the case.

Beau Layfield of The Layfield Law Firm, LLC has the focus, ability and dedication to take your case through to resolution. Beau Layfield and The Layfield Law Firm carefully prepare these cases with full documentation of the defective commercial product and the injuries and other damages suffered in the case. If you have been injured or made ill, or have lost a loved one due to the use of a defective commercial product, contact Beau Layfield of The Layfield Law Firm at once to review your case.

  • 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.

  • Should I take a settlement offer?

    It is never a good idea to settle an insurance claim before speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney that has experience with injury accident cases. Insurance companies have tactics they use to deny claims, redirect fault, and withhold available compensation. An insurance claim can be a complicated process and insurance adjusters can be intimidating to accident victims. An insurance company may assert that the injuries are not as serious as claimed, and attempt to settle quickly for a low amount.

  • 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 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.

  • 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).
