When you are attacked by an animal, the effects are usually dramatic. You likely have to obtain medical care and you might have to miss time at work. In some cases, the emotional and mental turmoil you face are also considerable. We know that all of these effects combine in a way that greatly impacts your life.
We understand that the losses you suffered because of the attack aren’t limited only to out-of-pocket medical expenses. Your lost wages also have a negative impact on your finances. We also factor in the losses you suffered because of pain and suffering, as well as the losses you might suffer if you have scarring or are disfigured because of the animal attack.
If the animal that attacked you was an owned animal, you might opt to seek compensation from the animal’s owner. We can help you to determine the options that you have for your case. In some instances, more than one party might be liable for the attack. An example of this is if the animal’s owner had insurance.
Animal insurance, homeowner’s insurance and motor vehicle insurance might all have coverage for an animal attack. The availability of coverage is determined by the insurance policy and the circumstances surrounding the attack. We can help you determine which parties might be held liable for the animal attack. Once we determine that, we can work with you to develop a plan of action.
We understand that you probably have a lot going on with trying to recover from your injuries. While you focus on your recovery and work on getting your life back on track, we can focus on the legal matters. You don’t have to try to do it all on your own.
