Our team is ready to help you focus on your physical and emotional recovery while we fight for your best interests.
Patrick: If you're involved in a dog bite case, immediately just get medical attention and then call an attorney and consult with him or her. In a dog bite case, I think it's helpful to have and really almost necessary to have an attorney represent you because of the legal requirements. They have procedures such as revision surgery that can reduce the scarring, make it look a lot less visible. And you wouldn't even know to think about getting that paid for and done unless you knew an attorney who had handled those type of cases.
Brice: It goes beyond just that encounter with the dog, because then the wound heals and there's a scar. And whenever the person or the, you know, the client looks at the scar, it's like they relived what happened to them. And so it's a lot of general damages. It's a lot of pain, the suffering, what happened to this person, an emotional toll. And that's really where a lawyer comes in, to help the client emphasize what happened to them and bring their story to light.
