Dog Bites & Attacks
Dog Bite Injury Cases
Every year almost 5 million people are inflicted with dog bites, an astounding number. An estimated half of those victims require medical attention. A parent attempting to pursue a dog bite claim may not have enough legal understanding to avoid the confusions and complexities which can attend the filing of a dog bite claim. Insurance companies have been known to offer only a small percentage of the actual costs of the medical expenses to a dog bite victim who is without legal representation.
Sometimes fear of causing negative consequences to the dog owners or dog, such as having to get the dog euthanized, can be overwhelming to consider, but in fact, protecting others in the community, particularly children and the elderly, from a vicious dog is very important. In such a circumstance, it would be in your best interests to contact a Houston dog bite attorney who is well versed in the handling of dog bite cases.
Filing a Dog Bite Claim
Although there are a few dog breeds which are most likely to become aggressive, many different dogs can cause serious and even fatal injuries from their attack. It may be necessary to obtain documents which show the history of the dog regarding animal attacks; this should be done on an immediate basis and by a qualified lawyer. Many times the dog owner's insurance will cover the claim, and the actual money paid by the dog's owner in such a case could be minimal. A capable and experienced attorney is usually required when dealing with insurance adjusters so that they can be provided with the proper evidence in the case.
