Pursuing The Compensation You Need After A Dog Bite Injury
Severe dog bites may require plastic surgery and leave lasting physical scars. Even a seemingly mild dog bite can become more serious than it looks at first because of the potential for infection. Dog bites of all kinds leave many people with psychological trauma, sometimes diagnosed as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Considering all the complications that dog bites can cause, it is clear why legal counsel is important along with timely medical care.

Step One: Get Medical Help. Step Two: Know Your Legal Rights.
Immediate, top-notch medical care can help mitigate the harm that a dog bite causes. Follow-up care is also important, especially when the person who was attacked is very young. If a child is expected to have serious facial scarring after a dog bite, doctors may recommend additional plastic surgery at later stages of growth and development. This is an example of why you should not accept a quick settlement offer from someone’s homeowners insurance company before consulting with an attorney first.
At Stine & Associates, P.C., we educate our clients and keep them informed so they can make decisions in their own best interests. For help deciding whether to settle your dog bite case, take it to trial, or wait and see how the healing progresses, turn to our personal injury firm.
