What you Need to Know About Alabama Dog Bites
Even a small lap dog can inflict a bite on a victim that needs medical attention and possibly physical therapy. The more serious the dog bite (or attack), the more money your case is worth. Here are the factors that go into valuing a dog bite case:
- Physical Injuries: How bad are your injuries? What are the cost of your current and ongoing medical bills? Will there be permanent scarring? All of these answers are assigned a dollar amount that we work to get you.
- Emotional injuries: For many, there is some PTSD and other issues a victim will need to deal with as a result of the encounter and we put a dollar amount on this to make sure this is part of your compensation package
- Missed work, etc: Did you have to miss work as a result of the dog bite? This lost income can come back to you in your settlement check.
- Other: Every Alabama dog bite case is unique and our goal is to get you paid for the total impact the dog bite has had on your life
