How Much is My Dog Bite Case Worth? | Claim Value
Recently I was contacted by someone who had been bit by a dog and was seriously injured. They asked me, “How much is my case worth?” Unfortunately, early on, we don’t know the answer to that question. The first thing we have to know is the extent of your injuries. Until we know the extent of your injuries, we don’t know how much your case is worth. We won’t be able to determine this until you’ve completed your medical treatment. There are a few different types of compensation you can receive when you’ve been injured by a dog bite in Texas, and that includes permanent disfigurement, past and future pain and suffering, past and future lost wages, and past and future medical costs.
How Much is My Dog Bite Case Worth? | Choosing an Attorney
When choosing a dog bite attorney, you need to be able to establish a level of comfort and trust with that attorney. Attorney-client relationships are very important. Next, you need to hire someone who devotes a large part of their practice to personal injury law and has experience in dog bites specifically. Dog bites are different than car wrecks. Different laws apply as to who is responsible if a dog bites someone.
Next, you need to hire a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work cases differently. Also, insurance companies know who the trial attorneys are and that gives you a better chance at a fair settlement offer. Lastly, if you are unable to resolve your case and you’re ready to go to trial, you need to have a trial attorney for that. Please don’t hesitate to call our office. If you have any questions, I’d be happy to meet with you and answer them.
