Our Dog Bite Attorneys in Utah Can Help

If you have been the victim of a dog bite, you are entitled to monetary compensation to cover your expenses, including:

    • Initial medical attention
    • Rehabilitation
    • Continuing care
    • Diminished earning capacity
    • Lost income
    • Damages
After a dog bite your insurance company is supposed to take care of you, but frequently they avoid making payments or offer low-ball settlements. One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself after suffering injury is to get a personal injury lawyer who will put you first. At Hepworth & Associates, our dog bite lawyers will step through your individual case to maximize your chance of receiving fair compensation. Our lawyers will use a simple approach to understand and complete you case.  

Step 1: Investigate the bite

We have investigated countless dog bite claims. Our experienced lawyers will gather all relevant initial 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. Then we will begin working on the outside factors that may have led to the bite and seek to understand the dog’s history of bites, should one exist. We will 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 dog bite law and will attempt to work with your insurance company for a prompt, fair settlement. You should never be taken advantage of in your time of need, especially by the insurance company you pay to protect you, so we will ensure that you get what you are entitled to.

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 paperwork. In fact, the number one reason to have a dog bite lawyer on your side is to make sure all of the proper paperwork is filled out and submitted to the right parties at the right time. Our legal experts will handle everything for you and ensure there are no errors leading to large medical bills, lost wages, and continued pain and frustration.
