Dog bites can be medical emergencies. Victims often require extensive treatment, which can include surgery, to repair the damage to their bodies after being bitten. Some may even need hospitalization due to serious nerve damage and infection.

The severity of dog bite injuries can put victims out of work for long periods of time. That means they don’t get the paychecks that they and their loved ones need to keep up with daily living expenses—let alone the expensive medical bills for their treatments.

At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas dog bite attorneys believe that people who are bitten by dogs should pursue maximum compensation for their bite-related expenses. If you were bitten by a dog, having an attorney on your side can make all the difference for three important reasons:

  1. We can help prove an owner’s negligence—Whether the owner failed to leash or enclose his or her dog, we can present evidence to the insurance company that can help demonstrate the owner’s liability.
  2. We can help show your injuries were caused by the dog—Insurance companies are often skeptical of injuries. We’ll use your medical records and other evidence to show that your injuries were caused by the unleashed or unrestrained dog.
  3. We can fight for full compensation—Even when insurance companies agree to pay settlements, they rarely pay victims what they deserve. We’ll calculate your total bite-related expenses and fight for the full amount.

We’re here to provide a free consultation if you or a loved one has questions about your rights after a dog bite or attack. Our attorneys know how traumatic dog bites can be, and we want to help.
