Dog or other animal bites can be terrifying, and they happen more often than you think.
Dogs are animals that often feel a need to protect themselves or their owners, mark their territory, or fail to understand their own power. Often you’ll combine that with an owner who doesn’t use discipline, fails to train their dog, doesn’t use a leash, or otherwise allows an injury to occur through neglect. It’s a serious problem and one that can cause you injury and pain.
Getting your insurance company to cover an animal bite is often tricky. You may find in the aftermath of a dog bite that the injury is much more serious, or will cost more money than you originally thought. Can you press charges or require the dog’s owners to compensate you? Should you? How does that all work? It can be a sensitive situation, especially if you know the dog’s owner. That’s where we come in.

We understand the unpredictable and personal nature of a dog bite injury, and we can take care of all the sensitive and complicated details. We can deal with your insurance company, as well as any insurance companies used by the dog’s owner. We can find the evidence you need and press through the paperwork and run around to give you your life back.
