Dog Bite / Animal Attack lawyers Dallas
Animal attacks and dog bite cases are some of the most heart-breaking kinds of cases. Many times, it is children who are attacked by animals. Permanent scarring, terrible injuries, and even death can result. The owners of the dog often believe that their dog is friendly, and a part of the family, so they are often in denial that their dog could bite and attack a person with no provocation. In fact, teasing or provoking a dog is a defense to a dog bite case.
Many breeds of dogs are large and powerful, and sometimes, owners train them to be aggressive. A large dog can greatly harm or even kill a grown man. It does not take much to realize that a child, being smaller and less able to defend himself or herself from a dog bite or attack, is in grave danger when a dog bites or attacks.
Dog bites and injuries can result in some of the most serious and permanent (and often, catastrophic) injuries we see in our law practice. Because of the high cost of serious necessary medical treatment, and the insurance policy limits which cover many homeowners of dogs, their insurance companies hire aggressive defense attorneys and these kinds of cases can turn into a real fight. You would be wrong to assume that anyone's insurance company or lawyer is going to take it easy on you, especially if your case involves a terrible, permanent scar.Early Investigation Can Be The Key To Protecting Your Right To Recover From A Dog Bite
If you or a loved one has been involved in an animal attack or dog bite case, there are many, many facts and details that can mean the difference between winning the case or ending up with a lower settlement for your injuries than you deserve or possibly even losing the case altogether.
Identifying all responsible parties, their insurance coverage, the dog owner or who was keeping the dog or other animal at the time of the attack, and getting a good understanding as to whether the dog or animal was provoked to attack are some of the most important first steps you can take if you or a loved one has been injured in an animal attack or dog bite.
