Working To Obtain Maximum Compensation When A Dog Bites You
We have experience seeking compensation through a dog owner’s home insurance policy under property liability laws. Our lawyers are committed to seeking the maximum amount of compensation possible in your situation to cover medical bills for rabies treatments or plastic surgery. Also, personal injury claims involving dog bites are unique, as accident victims are not required to prove that the dog bit them. Instead, dog owners are held strictly liable, even if the owner was not involved in the accident.
Our Past Insurance Experience Can Be Beneficial In Your Case
We provide you with experienced representation for all cases involving dog bites. Our personal injury practice includes attorneys who worked for insurance companies and who understand how these companies defend their cases. We know some dog owners are renters with no home insurance coverage. In that circumstance, we are ready to work to hold landlords accountable for dog bite accidents occurring on their property.
Preparing Cases For The Best Outcome Possible
Our preparation is thorough and meticulous. We examine all the evidence, from the dog’s violent propensities to the types of wound marks, and from the necessity for reconstructive surgery to the need for emotional counseling. Our attorneys work closely with your doctors to determine the extent of your injuries, which may include:
We incorporate medical testimony and photos of your injuries into a compelling presentation to illustrate the seriousness of dog bites and the long-term effects. We provide compassionate support when dog bites cause an injury to a child and work diligently to ensure the compensation is adequate to cover both the physical and emotional trauma.
