Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Baton Rouge Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable drivers on Louisiana's roads, due in large part to factors such as decreased level of protection and the lack of attention from other drivers. Wearing protective gear such as a helmet can provide some protection from head or brain injuries, but a motorcyclist rarely escapes a motorcycle accident without sustaining some type of serious personal injury. The 2010 Louisiana Traffic Data Report found there were 1,877 accidents involving motorcycles. Although only 68 fatalities resulted from these accidents, which is the lowest fatality rate since 2002, it is likely that a much higher number of the motorcyclists involved in the 1,877 accidents sustained serious or catastrophic injuries.

Motorcycles are involved in accidents for a wide variety of reasons, but a high percentage result from a car or truck driver who just fails to see the motorcycle. They may not observe the motorcycle in rear or side-view mirrors when changing lanes or turning. If you have recently been involved in a motorcycle accident and have suffered a serious injury a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney from The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can help you file an injury claim against the responsible driver.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Baton Rouge: Claims

There can be very serious consequences when a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a driver of a motor vehicle such as an automobile or truck. Since so little protection is provided on the motorcycle itself, drivers stand a much greater risk of suffering spinal injuries, broken bones, lost limbs, burns, lacerations, severe abrasions, internal damage and fatal injuries. When these injuries impact the victim's ability to work, medical bills and other costs related to the injury can be too much to bear. The Layfield Law Firm, LLC is committed to providing the kind of hard-working, experienced representation that you need to fight for and win the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Contact a Baton Rouge motorcycle accident lawyer at The Layfield Law Firm, LLC if you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident and would like to discuss your options for receiving financial compensation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
