Dog Bite & Attack
Have You Been Bitten by a Dog?
Dog bites are more common than most people think, affecting millions of adults and children in the United States every year. When a dog bite is severe, it can seriously impair a person’s ability to work and perform basic daily functions—not to mention the emotional toll that often lasts years after the injury has healed.
Should you hire a lawyer?
When you have been attacked and injured by a dog, it’s important to first and foremost get the medical care you need. If you find yourself significantly injured, consider at least talking to a dog bite lawyer to get advice you on the merits of your case and how you should proceed.
What does a dog bite lawyer do?
Often, dog bites happen at a friend or neighbor’s house, and it’s understandable that many clients are hesitant to bring legal action for fear of ruining a relationship. Contrary to popular belief, a dog bite lawyer’s job is not to take thousands of dollars or more from the pocketbooks of the dog owner—or to ensure the dog gets euthanized.
A dog bite lawyer simply ensures that the dog owner’s insurance company compensates the victim for his or her injuries. Your lawyer will work with all insurance companies involved to ensure that a fair settlement is reached.
Right to Fair Compensation
If you leave it up to the homeowner's insurance company to decide what is fair, you will likely receive a mere fraction of the compensation you deserve. When you work with an experienced dog bite lawyer, however, you not only get a fair settlement, but you’ll also have a legal advocate who will stand up to the insurance companies, so you don’t have to.
