Dog Bite Case Timeline
We were speaking with you young lady the other day who was bitten by a dog, and she had a pretty bad bite on her lip and had to go to the ER, had to get stitched up, and then she started having nightmares and anxiety. She called and was really worried. She wanted to know, “How long is this going to take to resolve?” She just wanted to put it all behind her and get some closure. She didn’t want to deal with it anymore. That’s something we hear a lot when we talk to people. They just want this to be behind them; they just want closure. They just want to wrap it up as quick as possible and be done with it.
What we tell everybody is that everybody’s case is different. Everybody’s case is unique unto them. It really depends on your particular damages, including your medical bills and how much medical treatment it takes to get you back to whole or reach maximum medical improvement. How much time have you lost from work? What do your lost wages look like? We also need to give some time to allow any kind of scarring to settle, so we understand if we need to have any kind of scar revision treatment.
There are a couple different things we look at that can impact how long a case takes to resolve. When you hire a personal injury trial attorney, our focus is on helping you get back to whole by taking care of the details. We collect the evidence, talk to witnesses and make sure that from day one we’re putting the pieces together so that we can put your case in the best position possible to have a quicker resolution in your favor.
In the event the insurance company doesn’t want to do the right thing, we are personal injury trial attorneys, so we’re not afraid to go to trial. We will go into the courtroom, in front of the judge and jury, and force the insurance company to compensate you for what’s fair and reasonable for your injuries.
As always here at the firm, legal consultations are free. Feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to talk to you and help you out if we can.
Dog Bite Case Value
We were talking with a mother the other day. Her son was bit by a dog, and her son ended up having to go to the hospital. He was in the hospital for a couple days, and the medical bills were really piling up. She was worried. She doesn’t have a lot of extra money to pay for these unexpected medical bills, and her biggest concern was, “How are we going to pay for all this? How much is this worth? What can we expect out of this?” It’s something we hear a lot from a lot of dog bite clients: “What’s my case worth?”
It’s unique for everybody. It’s different based on your own particular situation. First thing we want to look at is your injuries. How bad was the attack? How bad are your injuries? How much medical treatment is it going to take to help you reach maximum medical improvement? We also want to look at what your other damages are. Do you have any lost wages? Do you have any scars as a result of the attack? Are you having any nightmares? Are you having any kind of ongoing pain and suffering, disfigurement? How has this impacted your daily life?
There’s a variety of damages that we’re going to want to look at. When you hire a personal injury trial attorney from the get-go, we’re going to be able to make sure that we collect the evidence necessary to maximize the value of your case. That’s our job, and that’s our goal, so that you can focus on getting better and being with your family. Let us handle the details. We can do that for you to make sure that we maximize what goes into your pocket at the end of the day.
As always, legal consultations here at the firm are free, so we would invite you to give us a call. We can talk more about how we can help you and what the value of your particular case is worth.
Dog Bite Attorney Fees
We were speaking with a potential new client the other day. She was a really nice elderly lady from the Dallas area in Texas. She was over at her daughter’s house and her daughter’s dog was excited, jumped up and knocked grandma down. As a result, grandma broke her hip. She ended up having to go to the hospital and have surgery. She got out of the hospital and the medical bills were piling up. She’s on a fixed income so she was worried, “How am I going to pay rent? How am I going to pay my bills? How am I going to eat? How am I going to survive?”
It’s a question that we get a lot. Nobody is expecting thousands of dollars in medical bills after an incident. Nobody is expecting to all of a sudden come up with a bunch of money that they probably don’t have. We explained to her that we are contingency fee lawyers. We told her that we get paid on a contingency fee, which means it’s a percentage of the overall settlement. When the insurance company sends the firm a check, once they’ve made a fair and reasonable settlement offer that is, they’ll send the check to the law firm and the law firm will get a percentage of that, a contingency fee. That way, you’ll never have to pay out of your pocket for our services.
If you’re interested in learning more about how to get representation for your dog bite attack without having to pay for it, we definitely invite you to give us a call. Legal consultations here at the firm are always free.
