Our attorneys have seen the devastating effects, both physical and financial, a dog bite can inflict on someone.
At McShane & Brady, we have represented clients who have suffered serious injuries that had the risk of permanent scarring and costly medical bills.
We understand the urgency of these matters and work diligently to help dog bite victims recover compensation for their loses. Every victim of a dog bite injury should contact a lawyer to receive fair compensation for any injuries they suffer. Dog attacks can lead to serious injuries. Dog bites can lead to severe puncture wounds and lacerations, broken bones, and facial injuries — especially in children. Often dog bites lead to secondary infections that require hospitalization, long and painful recovery times, and tissue loss requiring plastic surgery.
Dog bites can leave lifelong injuries and scarring.
Injuries from dog bites, particularly those to the face, may require expensive reconstructive surgery. It is also common for those suffering from dog bites to suffer emotional trauma and develop a fear of dogs, especially children. In fact, the majority of dog bites involve children and the injuries can impact your child for the rest of his or her life.
Where should you look for help?
Dog bites often involve serious and long lasting injury. Only 15-20% of dog bites involve an unknown dog or owner. Most of the time the victim of a dog bite is familiar with the dog and the owner.
This often puts the victim in the awkward position of having to bring suit against a friend, neighbor, or acquaintance. Due to this, many fear that filing a dog bite lawsuit will make the situation even more uncomfortable than it is. The dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance will usually cover dog bites. Thus, an experienced dog bite attorney can generally settle the case with the insured, making a lawsuit unnecessary.
One thing that is clear is that the at-fault party’s insurance company will do their best not to pay you what your case is truly worth. Dog bite cases can be complicated, and many insurance companies will not settle with the victim until he or she has a lawyer.
In most cases, hiring a lawyer is necessary to protect your rights and ensure you are fairly compensated.
