Tired Driver

Truck Accident Lawyer in Baton Rouge

Tired Driver Accidents

Louisiana's city streets, country roads and highways are highly traveled by drivers operating all types of vehicles. From professional truck drivers, to families on vacation, to the daily work commuters, drivers find themselves in a range of physical and mental conditions, many of which are related to fatigue. People know that operating a vehicle is a serious responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Even so, many drivers take to the roads with insufficient sleep needed to drive responsibly, and accidents occur as a result. When a truck driver has not had sufficient rest, he or she poses a serious danger to all other drivers on the road.

Tired drivers take on a variety of characteristics such as slowed response time, inability to focus properly, decreased awareness and physical fatigue, which can cause the driver to swerve, speed or drive too slowly. This type of negligence can also happen if the driver fails to check mirrors and does not follow proper federal safety regulations while operating their vehicles. Accidents caused by tired truck drivers often lead to devastating and permanent injuries or fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident caused by a tired driver, it is crucial that you contact a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney at The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to begin the process of filing your injury claim.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
