Shreveport Dog Bite Lawyer
Every year, millions of people are injured by dog bites. Dog bites can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, wounds requiring stitches, disfigurement, and can have long-lasting effects, such as emotional trauma and a lifetime fear of dogs. If you or a loved one suffered an injury as the result of a dog bite or attack, contact an injury lawyer from our firm today. You have rights, and you deserve to seek compensation for your injuries and the traumatizing experience you have been through.
If you've been injured from a dog bite, you need to take the following steps immediately:
- Get the name and address of the owner of the dog
- Get the names and addresses of any witnesses to the incident
- Take a picture of the dog
- File a police report
- Contact an attorney
When you suffer a dog bite, the insurance company could attempt to offer you a low settlement, and try to conclude the case as quickly as possible. This is why you need an experienced dog bite attorney to fight on your behalf, negotiate with the dog owner and his or her insurance company, and fight for what you rightfully deserve. A dog bite can leave emotional and physical scars, both of which can last a lifetime. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to seek compensation for your injuries.
