Being attacked or bitten by a dog is often a terrifying experience. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, you may be suffering from the pain of your injury, expensive medical bills, and/or psychological trauma. However, you may be eligible for compensation that you can use to help build a strong and independent future. Mr. DePrimo is skilled and experienced in this area of law and we can help you hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
About Dog Bites & Attacks
Approximately 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs every year. Of those millions of victims, about half of them are children, with senior citizens as the second most common demographic. Nearly one in five dog bite victims requires medical attention due to the severity of the bite and these bites usually occur during normal, everyday interactions with dogs that are familiar to the victims. It is the responsibility of the dog’s owner to ensure no other people are harmed by their dog and that their dog is kept away from people if they know their dog to exhibit aggressive behavior.
At The DePrimo Law firm we can help you:
- Investigate the dog’s owner and the dog. We can help determine if the dog that you were attacked by has attacked anyone else or displayed aggressive behavior previously.
- Calculate the costs of your dog bite injury. Dog bite injuries are often exceedingly expensive to deal with, especially in America, where healthcare is the most expensive in the world. We can help you determine the amount of compensation you deserve for lost wages, future medical treatments, and rehabilitation.
- Negotiate with your insurance company. Insurance companies value profit over all else; so naturally, they will want to pay you as little as possible. Mr. DePrimo has extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies and will not let our clients be bullied by these large corporations. We always fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
