Dog Bites and Animal Attacks Attorney
Every year millions of people are injured in animal attacks. Often lay persons try to handle their injury claim themselves. Unfortunately, that sometimes invites disaster.
Insurance claims can be overwhelming because injury victims may face lost wages, mounting medical bills, and other out of pocket expenses.
Insurance companies have experienced adjusters and attorneys looking out for them. Therefore, an animal injury victim should have someone to look out for him or her as well.
A qualified Personal Injury Lawyer can make sure the proper investigation is completed, the insurance benefits are coordinated and that you, as the accident victim, are properly compensated for the injuries you sustained from the animal attack.
Recovering Damages from Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Many states allow those who have suffered from animal attacks to recover damages.
These damages are for pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, wrongful death, scarring, loss of opportunity to enjoy life, interference with marital and/or parental relationships, and other types of general damages.
In addition, dog bite injury victims may be entitled to recover for “special” or “economic” damages related to past, present and future medical bills, lost wages and future earnings, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Our attorneys are experienced in dog bite cases and offer you a free evaluation of your potential claim.
Important evidence can go stale or be lost without immediate action on the part of the victim or someone acting on their behalf, so don’t delay.
It costs nothing to find out about your rights.
