Dog Bite Lawyer Arlington, TX
Compensation For Dog Bite Victims of Arlington, Burleson, And Surrounding Areas
If you or a loved one has been attacked or bitten by a dog, it is imperative that you seek the appropriate medical treatment and seek legal representation right away.
Dogs bite nearly 4.5 million Americans per year, a large percentage of those attacks are on children. There were 32 reported dog bite related fatalities in 2013, 56% of those fatalities where children under 7 years old.
Dog bites, more frequently, cause serious injuries and permanent disfigurement. Permanent disfigurement in children most often occurs to their faces. Children are, in many cases, scarred for life, both physically and emotionally.
Adults who are disfigured frequently have a claim for lost income and loss of future earning capacity. A victim who is disfigured may have a substantial claim for past and future medical treatment, including plastic surgery and psychological treatment, as well as claims for pain and suffering.
Do Not Trust Insurance Companies
Dog owners have a duty to the public and ensure their dogs are leashed or fenced. It is important to identify the owner of the dog right away because most dog bites are covered under the homeowner’s insurance policy.
The laws in Texas are not clear cut on dog bites, but The Brandy Austin Law Firm is here to help you pursue financial compensation for damages caused to you or your loved one.
What if the attacking Dog was owned by a family member or Friend?
When you know the owner of the dog personally, it can make matters very uncomfortable all parties involved. At a time like this, it is so much easier to let your attorneys handle this stressful situation for you. It is important to remember the compensation being sought for your damages is from the dog owner’s insurance company, not the dog owner directly.
We take dog bite cases on a contingency basis, meaning you are not required to pay anything unless we get results for you.
