      What is a Dog bite?

      A dog bite is best described as a bite inflicted by a dog where it clamps its jaws on a body part such as the arm or the leg. The pressure exerted by the jaws can cause severe damage to the skin tissues, blood vessels, nerves, bones and muscles. If the injury is serious then its effects can be lifelong.

      What are the symptoms?

      • Puncture wounds
      • Severe pain and swelling
      • Infection
      • Scars
      • Bone damage
      • Paralysis

      Dog bites can lead to rabies. The rabies virus attacks the central nervous system leading to seizures, paralysis, mental instability and muscle spasms. It is important to access the medical and rehabilitation benefits available to you at the earliest.

      What are the compensation options available to you in the event of a dog bite?

      If a dog bites you, you can claim damages for the following

      • Pain and suffering
      • out-of-pocket expenses
      • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
      • Loss of income
      • Loss of competitive advantage
      • Loss of business opportunities

      The compensation you receive for a dog bite will depend on how severe the bite is, the physical and emotional consequences and whetheryou played a part in contributing to the attack through unreasonable behaviour. At this stage, a good personal injury lawyer can project the events in a particular manner so that you get the best possible settlement.

      Remember while the courts do give you an option to claim compensation, it is your responsibility to prove your injury to the court.

      What can you do to claim the best compensation for a dog bite?

      The first step is to choose the best personal injury lawyer to represent you. The lawyer should have solid experience in dealing with dog bite cases. Your personal injury lawyer will take care of the necessary documentation and testimonials to prove the severity of your injury to the court. In cases like these, a lawyer will be aware of all the laws regarding the benefits extended to a person with a dog bite so that the insurance companies don’t trick you into settling for an unfairly small amount.

      The need for the best lawyer to argue your cases increases when the cause of the injury is the negligence of a third party. Here the third party will try to get your claim disproved because they would face legal consequences otherwise. With an expert lawyer representing you, the defendant or insurance company lawyers will realize that they can’t use bullying tactics but will have to arrive at a fair settlement.
