Seeking Compensation After A Dog Bite Injury
Stories of people being bitten by dogs or attacked by other domestic animals make for good TV news fodder, but it is important to realize that real lives are being altered when animals attack.
At David & Associates, we know well the damage that a dog bite can inflict on an innocent pedestrian. Even in situations where the physical wounds heal, the psychological scars can last for a lifetime. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, it is crucial to know your rights.
The first step is hiring an attorney with the experience and resources to maximize your compensation. At our firm, we are home to a team that combines more than 100 years of personal injury experience in southeastern North Carolina.
Do You Have A Case?
Not everyone who is bitten by a dog is eligible to receive personal injury compensation for medical costs, lost earnings, pain and suffering and other damages. A dog owner in North Carolina is liable for damages if he or she knowingly violates the law that bars dogs from running at large. In other words, if an owner is negligent in failing to leash a dog, put up a fence or otherwise control a dog, you are more likely to have a case.
How Much Is Your Case Worth?
This will depend on what you have lost as a result of the dog bite. We will work with experts such as medical doctors, psychologists, economists and others to determine the full scope of your damages. Then, we will put our negotiation and trial skills to work to ensure you receive the full compensation you deserve.
