In the case of a serious injury, consulting a Baton Rouge injury lawyer with The Layfield Law Firm, LLC may give you the best opportunity to receive financial compensation for your suffering.

Slip & Fall Lawyer in Baton Rouge

People who slip or fall due to the negligence of a property owner can sustain a number of different injuries, both short-term and long-term. Minor injuries like sprains, scrapes or bruises are common and may not have a particularly difficult recovery. More serious injuries may occur such as broken bones, spinal injuries, head or brain injuries and even death in especially severe scenarios. The recovery time for a serious slip and fall injury can last months, years, or can even cause permanent disability. In the case of long-term recovery, it may be difficult for the victim to continue to work and make a living. Financial hardship due to medical bills or inability to work is one of the greatest potential threats to anyone who has sustained a personal injury.

  • How will custody of my child be decided?
    It is possible for you and your spouse to come to a decision regarding child custody without the court intervening.

    However, if you and your spouse cannot come to a custody terms agreement, the court will decide for you, and will look at the following:

    • the child's gender and age;
    • the child's mental and physical health;
    • the child's relationship with each parent;
    • the parents' respective lifestyles;
    • each parent's ability to provide basic necessities for the child, including shelter, food, and clothing; and
    • the child's preference (if they are of a certain age).
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
