Truck Accident Injuries

Truck Accident Injury Claims in Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge Truck Accident Attorney

Commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are powerful machines, and thus, the need for responsible driving by professionals is critical to maintaining the safety of Baton Rouge's busy roadways. Unfortunately, many commercial drivers fail to drive responsibly and do not consider other vehicles on the road. Commercial drivers, even by simple negligence, who are the cause of an accident, can be held responsible for damages to all vehicles involved as well as all costs associated with the recovery for any personal injury.

Legal Protection from a Baton Rouge Injury Lawyer

In many cases, commercial vehicles are insured by a business or organization, and are covered adequately for cases of driver error, which result in accident with injury. In some cases, however, insurance companies may attempt to limit the victim's rights by using scare tactics or applying pressure to coerce them into accepting a settlement quickly after the accident. The commercial insurance companies have their own accident investigators that are dispatched at once to the scene. As profit-driven corporations, they hope to reduce the cost of settlements. A Baton Rouge injury lawyer from The Layfield Law Firm, LLC knows how irresponsibly insurance companies can act when seeking to minimize their own financial loss, and is committed to protecting your right to fair compensation.

Truck accident injuries are often very severe due to the power and size of the vehicle, and collisions can result in broken bones, lost limbs, paralysis, long-term disability, head and brain injuries, and death. The costs associated with recovery, or long-term care in cases of permanent disability, can be significant and pose a real financial threat to truck accident victims. Drivers who cause truck accidents in commercial vehicles should be held responsible for the damages they cause. The Layfield Law Firm, LLC will aggressively pursue the compensation deserved after a truck accident.

Contact a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney at The Layfield Law Firm, LLC if you have been hit by a commercial vehicle so you can seek the compensation you deserve.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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).
