What A Dog Bite Lawyer Can Do For You

  • Conduct an investigation to find out if the dog owner or handler acted negligently.
  • Deal with the insurance adjusters and legal matters so that you can focus on getting better.
  • Attempt to recover the best possible settlement for your case.

Settlements and Compensation for Dog Bite Victims

  • Pain and suffering: This is the right to compensation for physical pain and suffering and mental anguish you have suffered and could possibly endure in the future.
  • Loss of Earnings: You are entitled to recover for the loss of earnings which you suffered from your injuries.
  • Future Loss of Earnings: If your injuries have prevented you from your ability to earn income in the future, you can recover damages for the value of the reduction in earning capacity with reasonable probability which will occur in the future.
  • Disfigurement: If the injury causes scarring or other unsightly marks, the victim is entitled to recovery for the disfigurement. Because these injuries are often in very visible places, victims are often very self-conscious of their appearance. Children are frequently bitten in the facial region and require plastic surgery.
  • Medical Expenses: Dangers include any sort of medical expenses that a victim has had to pay for at a hospital, clinic, or to a pharmacy.
  • Wrongful Death of a Loved One
