COMMON DOG BITE CASE QUESTIONS
If you have injuries and medical expenses, yes. All insurance companies have teams of lawyers and specialists who represent the owner of the dog responsible for your injury. This means that the dog owner already has a full team to represent them. Facing such a team of skilled professionals without having your own legal representation is usually not the best decision. While you can pursue a claim for your dog bite alone, you will literally be at the insurance company’s mercy and more than likely will achieve a less-than-favorable result.
The insurance company will more than likely make a small offer. They may deny your claim altogether. They will certainly try to get you to sign a release that will release them from liability on any future treatments. You want a team on your side who can guide you through these issues and preserve your right to get injury treatment in the future, if necessary.
YOU SHOULD ACT IMMEDIATELY. Hiring an experienced dog bite attorney, like the ones we have at Warnock MacKinlay Law, is vital if you were injured by dog bite or animal attack. We see so many victims attempt who represent themselves but generally fail because the odds are stacked against them. We like to say that the only thing more important than hiring a qualified lawyer after a dog bite injury is seeking medical attention, and the lawyers at Warnock MacKinlay Law can help you with a good, competent doctor who can help.
If you don’t have insurance, don’t worry! We can guide you to medical professionals who can treat all of your dog bite injuries and will wait for payment until after your case is resolved.
For the most part, the answer is “No”. One thing you really need to remember is that the insurance company does not work for you – they work for basically everyone else: the owner of the dog, their investors etc.. Even before you obtain medical attention and assess the extent of your injuries, they may contact you with a low-ball offer.
Many people accept these types of offers and sign a release, only to find out that they have further complications “down the road”. Then, if the person has issues such as needed surgery or additional treatment, their ability to collect from that insurance company is waived.
Complications such as infections, nerve damage, surgery and other issues can arise that need to be treated.
In most states, including Arizona and New Mexico, releases can be worded in such a way to make it almost impossible to ever seek any further compensation after you sign, even if you find your injuries are much worse than you thought. You will want an attorney to look over EVERY document the insurance company wants you to sign.
At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we make it simple and easy to afford an attorney if you have been injured by a dog bite. We do not charge any attorney fees unless we are successful in recovering money for you. Even if there are costs involved in your case, such as investigation, medical records, medical reports, deposition fees and the like, we will advance those funds for you until your case is resolved. We will also help you to find medical professionals who can treat your bite injuries, who will wait for payment until your case resolves.
With dog bite cases, the amount of money you will ultimately recover depends on a variety of issues, the most important of which is the severity and nature of your injuries caused by the dog bite and the comprehensive medical treatment you receive for those injuries. At Warnock MacKinlay Law we seek reimbursement for any or all of the following on dog bite cases:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of love and support
- Mental and emotional distress
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Permanent impairment and disability
- Property damage.
You can rest easy knowing that Warnock MacKinlay Law will pursue every possible legal avenue to get you the compensation you deserve.
