If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, you are likely recovering, fearful and possibly angry. It’s a stressful time and you might be wondering if hiring a dog bite attorney is a good idea.
After all, you might be dealing with medical bills, loss of wages and other issues that are no fault of your own. As with any legal matter, having an expert in your corner is a good idea. Hiring a dog bite attorney can give you peace of mind, protect your rights and get you a settlement you deserve so you can focus on the business of healing. Read on:
It’s the owner’s responsibility
Dog owners are responsible for their animals – meaning, if you were bitten by a dog, it’s the owner’s responsibility. You are entitled to have your medical bills paid by the owner of the dog that bit you. Circumstances are important for your case.
Don’t fight an insurance company
Most dog bite claims go through the dog owner’s homeowners’ insurance. Meaning, if you want to recover costs that you are entitled to, you have to fight a big insurance company alone – which means you’d likely get less money that you need and deserve. An experienced dog bite attorney will fight to get you a good settlement and protect your rights.
Investigate and assist
When you are bitten by a dog, it can become a he-said-she-said situation. An experienced dog bite attorney will investigate your case and prove the facts – meaning you’ll get your settlement and you won’t have the stress or worry. We’ll also be with you every step of the way, answering questions and making sure you understand the process.
