Each year, millions of people are bitten by animals, especially dogs. While some dog bites are minor, many victims suffer painful injuries and emotional scars. Most people know that the first thing they should do when they are bitten by an animal is to seek medical treatment, but few know that their next step should be speaking with an animal bite lawyer.
While no amount of money can heal your wounds, if you’ve been bitten by a dog or other animal, you may be entitled to compensation for:
The cost of medical treatment
Any income you lost due to time you had to take off from work because of your injuries
Your physical and emotional pain and suffering
If you were recently attacked by an animal, take the time to discuss your injuries with an understanding lawyer like Carl A. Piccarreta PC. He can:
Evaluate your case
Negotiate on your behalf with the animal’s owner or the owner’s insurance company
File and pursue a lawsuit on your behalf if negotiations don’t lead to a successful settlement
Offer you support during this traumatic time in your life
