West Virginia Dog Bite Attorney
Why Hire a Dog Bite Attorney?
Dog bite cases can be complicated and proving that the attacking dog had violent propensities will likely be essential to recovering full and fair compensation for your losses. An understanding of West Virginia leash and dog bite laws is also important to recovering fair compensation and identifying a responsible insurance carrier. Dog bite victims may be able to recover compensation for their injuries, scars, lost wages, and pain and suffering through the dog owner’s homeowners insurance or other insurance policies.
However, insurance companies are corporations designed to make a profit. So they will likely try to offer you a settlement for much less than you deserve, often less than what you will need to pay for your past and future medical bills. Also, sometimes the dog owner doesn’t have homeowners’ or renters’ insurance.
These are just some of the obstacles to recovering fair compensation in a dog bite case. That’s why it is important to choose an experienced West Virginia dog bite lawyer with a proven track record of getting clients fair compensation for their injuries. At West Law Firm we have the experience, track record, and resources to help you win your dog bite claim.
