Dog Bite Attorney
Over four million people are bitten by dogs in the U.S. every year. Are you a victim? If so, you should consult a dog bite lawyer who is an expert in getting compensation for those who have been attacked by a dog. Lawyers Group can connect you with a qualified dog bite attorney who will help get you the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
The Centers for Disease Control report that over 800,000 people seek treatment for dog bites each year in the United States. While some bites are superficial, tens of thousands of victims receive bites so severe they must undergo reconstructive surgery. In these cases, a dog bite lawyer can help victims recover money for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
"Man's Best Friend" is America's most popular household pet. Of the 70 million dogs in the U.S., the overwhelming majority are docile, friendly, and safe companions. But dogs are powerful animals, with sharp fangs and strong jaws capable of causing painful, debilitating injuries. Dog bites can result in lingering pain, infections, permanent scarring, and in the most extreme cases, even death. If you have suffered because of a dog bite, be sure to consult with a dog bite lawyer to see if you have a case.
You Need a Dog Bite Attorney
Many dog bite victims think they have no recourse when they are bitten by a dog. A dog bite attorney knows this is often not the case. If pet owners do not act in a responsible manner, they can be held liable for the actions of their pets.
Some misinformed people believe that it is the breed of the animal that makes it vicious. Pit bulls, Rottweilers and other large breeds have bad reputations for attacks. This is a misconception based on the fact that the bites of larger animals naturally cause greater injury. But is not the breed of dog that leads to bites. The manner in which the dog has been trained and treated by its owner is often the root cause for an animal bite. Mistreatment and neglect, whether intentional or unintentional, can bring out aggressive behavior. The dog bite lawyers with Lawyers Group can help you decide if the pet owner is to blame.
Attacked by a Dog?
Mistakes pet owners make which can cause a person to be attacked by a dog include:
- failing to keep the dog fenced or confined
- letting the dog wander off leash
- training a dog to behave aggressively
- encouraging aggressive play, such as wrestling and “tug of war”
- neglecting or beating the animal
If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, the pet owner or his insurance company could be made to pay for your medical expenses, loss of salary, and pain and suffering. A Lawyers Group dog bite lawyer can advise you of your legal rights.
How Much Does a Dog Bite Lawyer Cost?
In most dog bite cases, it could prove more costly not to hire a dog bite lawyer. Proving these cases is complex, requiring an expert to win the day. Numerous studies show that dog bite victims who hire personal injury attorneys generally receive much higher settlements than those who don't, even after paying the dog bite attorney for services rendered.
Another piece of good news: the vast majority of dog bite lawyers take cases on a contingency basis. Under these agreements, the dog bite attorney takes a percentage of the funds they win for you after they collect for your case. This saves you upfront costs, and if he doesn’t win, often you won’t owe the dog bite lawyer a dime. You have nothing to lose, and your settlement or award to gain. So don’t delay.
