Hiring a Lawyer For a Dog-Bite Claim

A dog attack can be very terrifying for the injured. Not only does it result in life-long scarring and serious injury, but it can lead to serious stress.

On an average, 1000 dog bite victims land up in hospital emergency rooms for treatment. Hiring a dog bite lawyer will alleviate the stress of a lawsuit. Considering the services of the attorney becomes essential when the dog-owner responsible is unresponsive.

Role of a dog-bite attorney

Dog bite attorneys are also known as personal injury lawyers who will decide on the course of action when settling the case. Apart from investigating the witnesses, he will get in touch with the insurance company and notify them about your claim. During the initial investigation, the attorney will file a formal lawsuit if there is enough evidence.

Taking resort to legal help

After a dog-bite injury, it can be confusing and traumatic. It may be difficult to pay the medical bills if you try to fight a big insurance company without legal help. There have been instances when the owner of an animal has not been held responsible for a dog-bite. If the owner had warned the attacked person about the animal being dangerous and had taken measures to keep the animal away from people, in that case the dog-owner will not be held responsible for the attack. At times, the animal owner may contend that the dog has been provoked by the injured person. Thus, apart from ascertaining the damages, establishing the dog-bite case may be difficult for an attorney.
