Filing a personal injury claim can be a lengthy, time consuming, and complicated process if you do not understand the laws in your state. An experienced attorney will navigate you through the process and tell you what to expect.
Dog Bite Attacks
After a dog attacks there is a list of things you should do immediately following the incident. First of all, you should try to obtain the names and addresses of any witnesses that may have seen what happened. You should also try to find the name of the dog’s owner.
Next, take pictures of any injuries you sustained during the attack. Then seek medical help and attention to treat the injuries. Finally, you should file a report with an animal control agency in your area so there is a clear record of what happened for when the officers begin their investigation into the accident.
The hospital or doctor that treats you will most likely create their own report. However, it is always best to file your own so it is thorough and more complete than what the hospital may have created.
Sometimes the owner of the dog is insured. If this is the case you will want to obtain their insurance information and immediately forward the information to the experienced personal injury attorney that will be helping you with your claim.
Statistics show that less than one percent of those involved in dog bite attacks actually receive compensation for their injuries. These statistics are mainly because many people do not bother to report the attack.
If you choose not to seek help from an attorney then you risk the chance of the insurance adjuster offering ten to twenty percent of the amount you could have otherwise received for your injuries.
