The residual effects of your injury.
In dog bite cases, we hire qualified experts to help explain your injuries and the impact they have on your everyday life. As we have seen many times following a dog bite or attack, plastic surgery may be required to help minimize scarring and disfigurement. We will consult with your surgeon to include any and all future surgeries that may be required.
Has your injury left you unable to perform the job you once had? We will include lost wages and/or lost earning capacity when determining the full extent of your damages.
Other recoverable damages for your dog bite injuries may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
Deadlines apply for dog bite lawsuits.
Every state has a deadline for filing a lawsuit, called the statute of limitations. Typically a dog bite is considered a personal injury lawsuit, which in most states is required to be filed within two years of the date of the accident. In dog bite lawsuits, the time limit will begin from the date the dog bite occurred.
If you fail to file your lawsuit within the required time limit, you may lose your right to recover damages. It’s imperative to contact an experienced dog bite lawyer quickly in order to preserve your potential right to pursue compensation for your injuries.
