Dog bite and animal attack claims are not straight forward. There are medical providers, insurance companies, and more often than not, familial and friendly relationships at stake.
A personal injury lawyer can handle the claim from beginning to end and can take a lot of the stress, fear and anxiety out of the equation for the injured victim. Personal injury lawyers can investigate the dog’s bite history, speak to city and government agencies regarding freedom of information act requests and locate each potential avenue of recovery that may cover the incident.
