Compensation for Virginia Dog Attack Victims

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation, you may be entitled to the following compensation:

  • Medical expense damages typically include medical bills, ambulance rides, surgeries, long-term care, or any other medical expenses related to your attack.
  • Pain and suffering is based on the physical pain and suffering and mental anguish caused by the dog attack.
  • Lost wages can be recouped if you had to miss time off work due to your injuries. If your injuries are permanent, and have affected your ability to earn a living, future loss of earnings may also be included in your Virginia dog bite settlement.
  • Disfigurement & scarring causes unsightly marks and often leads to the need for plastic surgery. Sadly, children are frequently bitten in the facial region.
  • Wrongful death of a loved one – Fatal dog attacks are rare, but when they do occur, they’re always incredibly tragic. No one ever expects to lose a loved one in such a violent way. The Virginia wrongful death statute allows certain family members of the victim to file a claim.

Deadlines for Virginia Personal Injury Cases

In Virginia, there are strict deadlines for filing a lawsuit. In many cases, Virginia provides a two-year deadline also known as a Statute of Limitations. However, sometimes special circumstances apply and can alter that deadline. It is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after the dog attack to protect your rights.

No Legal Fees Unless We Settle or Win Your Case

We offer a No Fee Promise, which means that you don’t owe us any legal fees unless we settle or win your case. We will work on your behalf to get a fair settlement, and only charge legal fees if you receive a settlement or verdict.
