Personal Injury

The Layton Law Firm represents individuals in Personal Injury matters from minor traffic accidents to wrongful death.

Chris Layton is the managing partner and owner of the firm, and oversees and directs all client matters. Personal Injury matters can quickly become complex, and The Layton Law Firm works together with your physician(s) to insure you are receiving the proper treatment, and that all necessary medical records are established to build your case. Quite often, when working with the firm, the firm is able to reach an insurance settlement without the client ever having to make an appearance in court or at mediation. In matters where litigation is required, the firm is prepared to move forward accordingly. Proper medical treatment is critical to a successful personal injury case. In many cases, physicians are willing to defer payment of their bills until the client's case is settled. The law firm arranges all such agreements with physicians and hospitals on behalf of the client.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

The Layton Law Firm is in the business of financial relief and fairness. Whether that relief is related to discharging overwhelming financial obligations or seeking compensation for physical harm, the client is restored to a manageable, thriving life. Insurance companies and creditors are business entities. They have a bottom line, and they routinely make unfair offers to individuals affected by external forces or individuals. The Layton Law Firm insures individuals are treated fairly by both creditors, corporations, and insurance companies alike.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Chris Layton has owned and operated his own law practice since 2000. The success he has experienced in the practice of law comes not only from generating results, but also from understanding that individuals need a personal relationship with their attorney. They need to be able to pick up the phone and voice a concern. They need to know that someone is looking out for their best interests. Clients feel that way from the first phone call with The Layton Law Firm.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Law firms, like every other business entity, are driven by revenue. The philosophy at The Layton Law Firm is that if it's not in the best interest of the client, we won't do it. This includes issues of timeliness, communication, court filings and settlement negotiations. In the end, the client experiences the benefit. If we can't help with a particular issue, we are quick to acknowledge that and put you in touch with someone who is qualified to assist.
