Do You Have Questions About Your Case?

  • Questions

  • What Do I Do After I Have Been Bitten By A Dog?

    Answer

    First and foremost, it is vital that you seek immediate medical attention. After you have received proper medical care, we suggest you identify the dog, write down the owner’s information and record the dog’s license information. Next, collect witness information and thoroughly document the incident. We encourage you to take pictures of your wounds and clothing. Finally, secure legal assistance. Without a highly skilled personal injury attorney on your side, you will decrease your chances of a favorable case outcome.

  • What Is The Difference Between A Claim & Lawsuit?

    Answer

    A personal injury claim arises when someone is injured as a result of another person’s negligence, recklessness or criminal conduct. Personal injury claims can be pursued against responsible parties or insurance carriers. Claims are completed when the responsible party/company pays the agreed upon amount. If the injured individual and the individual at fault cannot come to an agreement or settlement, a lawsuit may be filed.

  • What Actions Or Inactions Can I Take To Help My Case?

    Answer

    Immediately following an accident, we advise you to avoid making any statements that may indicate you are guilty. If possible, we suggest you take photographs of the accident, the surrounding areas, and the injuries you have sustained. It is imperative that you collect witness information as well as the information of any individuals who may be able to help you collaborate an effective claim. Finally, do not navigate the complexities of the legal system alone. Representing yourself against insurance companies may prove damaging as you may be offered a low, unfair settlement.

Common Injuries Resulting From Dog Bites

Dogs carry bacteria in their mouths. When an individual is bitten by a dog, it is imperative that the wound is properly cleaned in order to prevent serious infection.

  • Scars
  • Tearing
  • Tetanus
  • Staph Infection
  • Sepsis (Blood Poisoning)
  • Permanent Nerve Damage

What Do I Need To Prove In Order To Successfully File A Claim?

  • The Attack Was Unprovoked

  • You Were Not Trespassing When The Attack Occurred

  • The Dog Had A Propensity For Attacking Individuals

  • The Dog Was Not A Military Or Police Dog

If you have been bitten by a dog, we urge you to take advantage of your right to compensation. Determining your legal rights can be extremely complex. Allow our legal team to help you file a highly effective claim against the responsible party.
