Our Dog Bite Attorneys Can Help
If you have been the victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to monetary compensation to cover your expenses, including:
- Initial medical attention
- Continuing care
- Diminished earning capacity
- Lost income
After a dog bite happens, your insurance company should help you, but frequently they avoid making payments or they offer settlements that just don't provide enough for you to cover your expenses. One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself after suffering an injury is to get a personal injury lawyer who will put you first. At Hepworth & Associates, we will do everything we can to get you the compensation you need to get back on track.
Step 1: Investigate the bite
We have investigated many dog bite claims. Our team begins by gathering all relevant details, such as the address of the incident, the description and name of both the dog and owner, and any other details about the incident. We then begin working on the outside factors that may have led to the dog bite and seek to understand the dog’s history of bites, should it exist. We do the legwork and make sure we have all of the correct information so you do not have to worry.
Step 2: Negotiate with the insurance company
We know the law and we know how to work with insurance companies to get a prompt, fair settlement. You should never be taken advantage, especially by an insurance company.
Step 3: Complete the legal paperwork
When you have been the victim of a dog bite, the last thing you want to do is worry about is paperwork. In fact, the number one reason to have a lawyer on your side is to make sure all of the proper paperwork is submitted to the right parties at the right time. Our legal experts will handle everything for you.
