Finding A Dog Bite Attorney Can Be A Very Good Decision

Justice Admin Jan/23/2011

If you are attacked and indeed bitten by a dog then it may be possible for you to claim damages against the owner due to the injury that you have sustained. If this is indeed the case then your best course of action is to talk to a dog bite attorney as they fully understand the legal implications and the odds of you successfully winning your case.

They are the people with the actual experience of dealing with cases such as these so they know exactly how to argue your side of things. These kinds of claims for damages can often be a lot easier to deal with because often there is no real doubt as to who is to blame since it must almost always lie with the owner since it is their responsibility to have it under control at all times.

However do be aware that it is not always an open and shut case as there may of course be times where the animal has been provoked in some way which has resulted in it reacting by biting. This is one reason why it is always important to get a lawyer at the earliest possible opportunity as this is when all of the facts are freshest in your memory therefore giving you the best chance of getting a positive outcome.

This potential doubt about whether or not it was provoked is why it is useful if there are any witnesses to the incident and if there are to make sure you get their details. That is because this can help with your own case and these details should be passed on to your lawyer as soon as possible.

It may at first appear to be quite difficult finding a lawyer with some experience in dealing with this kind of case so it could be an idea to ask the medical staff that are treating you if they can recommend anybody. The chances are that they do know someone since they are going to have dealt with this kind of injury a number of times and it is quite probable they have already been asked this question by someone else.

Deciding on who you want to represent you from a legal standpoint should be no different when searching for a dog bite attorney than any other kind of lawyer. The main issue is trust and this is a lot easier if you feel at ease with them and completely confident in their ability so this is why you really should try to look into their background a bit before contacting them.

Do ask them about their experience in dealing with similar cases as this does mean they shall know what the current going rate is in regards to compensation for incidents such as the one that has happened to you. This of course is one reason why you should use a lawyer and not do things yourself as you could easily be doing yourself out of compensation due to not knowing what the other party should be paying.

So if you do find yourself in this kind of situation then try to find the best possible dog bite attorney so you can then see about taking the owner to court in order to claim for damages. As with any case where you require a lawyer it is always best to get a specialist and this is no different so it is worth your while just taking some time to look around in order to get this very specific type of legal help.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
