Compensation available in a dog bite lawsuit

When you work with our personal injury law firm on your claim, our first action will be to evaluate your damages. In most cases, the monetary compensation available in a lawsuit relates to bodily injuries. However, the medical bills you incur immediately after the attack are only part of the equation. In addition to your long-term treatment needs, you could potentially recover compensation which could include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium

Insurance claims

Often, the dog owner has coverage through their homeowner policy. Of course, this will only apply in certain situations. If you are bitten by a dog in a public park, for instance, you will not be eligible to file a claim on the owner’s policy. However, if it happens at or near their property, the insurance company could get involved.

The potential for recovering from an insurance policy is a positive thing. While dog owners do not always have the means to pay a settlement, insurance companies certainly do. That does not mean they will freely hand out money, however. That said, working with an experienced dog bite law firm could make the process of recovering compensation go smoothly.

The same is not always true if you attempt to take on your claim alone. Insurance adjusters are trained professionals with extensive practice short-changing injury victims. If you handle this on your own, you put yourself at a disadvantage. We know how to negotiate with insurance carriers.
