What Are Some Common Damages In Dog Bite Claims?

One of the most common misconceptions about dog bite injuries is that they involve only a few mild indentations or cuts from the animal’s teeth. By contrast, many dog bites cause long-lasting physical and emotional damage that results in high bills. Some of the damages our lawyers have recovered include:

  • Current and future medical bills and treatment
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering

A lot of injured parties we have helped do not want to sue the dog owner. It can give the victim a negative reputation, even if they did nothing to provoke the attack. Our attorneys can quickly and discreetly resolve claims by working with insurance companies to recover a fair settlement for you.
