Dog bite or dog attack cases are another category of cases that very often insurance adjusters respond to very quickly. The reason that insurance companies and insurance adjusters do this is that they do not want the injured party to have adequate time to evaluate what the damages may actually be. Unfortunately, dog bites or other types of animal attacks almost always leave the injured client with scarring. Scarring may very well take significant time to heal after which time the client would need to take steps to determine what may be done to treat the scar into the future. Very often, we send clients to plastic surgeons or other medical professionals that can give some idea of what can be done for a scar to lessen the aesthetic discomfort.
At Burriss and Ridgeway we handle a lot of these types of cases and have had significant success recovering for clients who have been victimized by a dog or some other type of animal. Our main concern in these types of cases is making sure that the client is getting what it is that they need and that their damages are accurately and completely compiled. To the extent that you would like a free consultation to discuss the injury that you have sustained we would be more than happy to speak with you.
