Have you been bitten by a dog?
Being bitten by a dog is scary. But dealing with the aftermath can be even scarier. Not only are you facing pain and a serious injury, but you must also make some major decisions about how to approach the dog’s owner, who may be someone you know. It could be an uncomfortable conversation.
The Advocates Law dog bite lawyers know how stressful these situations can be. We understand that it is important for you to receive compensation for your injuries, as well as maintain a good relationship with the dog owner. The Advocates Law will sensitively handle your case to help maintain a good relationship with the dog owner. There is no need to attack the owner who may be your neighbor, friend, or even family member. This increased awareness by our attorneys can help the process run more smoothly.
Dog bite injuries can be very costly. Some studies show that the average cost of a dog bite related hospital visit can be more expensive than normal. The Advocates Law is committed to helping you receive compensation to pay these medical bills.
Your settlement or payout will be handled by the dog owner’s insurance. For this reason, many insurance professionals insist that dog owners make sure that damage caused by their pet is covered by their policy. An important distinction is you are not “suing” anyone, we are negotiating and settling with the insurance company, not with the dog owner.
