Experienced Montgomeryville Dog Bite Attorney Representing Victims of Dog Bite Injuries
According to the dog bite victims’ group DogsBite.org, about 1,000 Americans seek emergency medical treatment for dog bites every single day. But, while dog bites may be an everyday occurrence, the consequences of these attacks are far from ordinary. Many victims suffer permanent scars and physical disabilities, and dog attack victims of all ages routinely suffer severe psychological trauma.
If you or your child has been attacked by a dog in Montgomeryville, it is important that you seek help. This means seeing a doctor promptly, and it also means speaking with an attorney. With consequences that can truly last a lifetime, dog bite injuries can cause substantial long-term financial and non-financial harm. Speaking with a trusted Montgomeryville lawyer is the only way to find out if you are entitled to recover your losses.
We Represent Dog Bite Victims in Montgomeryville, PA
Our practice is devoted to representing dog bite victims and their families in Pennsylvania. If you live in Montgomeryville and you have been bitten or your child has suffered a dog bite injury, we can help you assert your legal right to just compensation. Attorney Jeffrey H. Penneys will work with you personally and he will vigorously fight for just compensation on your behalf, and he will make sure you feel confident when you decide to settle your claim or take your case to trial.
Of course, most dog bite claims – in fact, the vast majority of dog bite claims – settle out of court. As a result, the odds are that you will not have to seriously consider the prospect of going to trial. But, as your advocate and advisor, Mr. Penneys will explain in detail whether any settlement offer you receive truly reflects just compensation for your losses. And if the dog owner’s insurance company is refusing to treat you fairly, he will go to court to win the compensation you deserve.
5 Key Facts about Dog Bite Injury Claims
As a dog bite victim or the parent of a child who has been injured by someone else’s dog, you have clear rights under Pennsylvania law. Here are five key facts about your claim for just compensation:
1. The Cost of Treating Your (or Your Child’s) Physical Injuries Represents Only a Portion of Your Claim
While your medical bills might be shockingly high, they represent only a portion of the costs you will incur as a result of the attack. Your future medical bills could far exceed what you owe currently, and dog bite victims can recover damages for their lost earnings, scarring and disfigurement, pain and suffering, and other losses as well.
2. You Do Not Have to Feel Bad about Filing a Claim for an Injury Caused by a Friend’s or Neighbor’s Dog
If you had a dog and it attacked a friend or neighbor, wouldn’t you want to do the right thing? The odds are, the owner of the dog that attacked you or your child does, too. Plus, dog bite injuries are covered by homeowners and renters insurance, and many dog owners purchase additional insurance just to make sure they are covered in the event that their dog does something unexpected.
3. The Insurance Company Will Try to Deny Your Claim by All Means Available
Dealing with the insurance companies after a dog attack is just like dealing with the insurance companies after any other type of accident or loss. In short, they are going to try to deny your claim by all means available. In order to protect yourself, you need an experienced attorney to submit your claim and negotiate on your behalf.
4. You Only Have One Opportunity to Recover Just Compensation for Your Current and Future Losses
Despite the fact that the effects of the attack could endure for the rest of your life, you only get one opportunity to recover just compensation. As a result, when deciding whether to accept a settlement offer, it is extremely important that you have a complete picture of the future economic and non-economic losses you are likely to endure.
5. It Costs Nothing out of Pocket to Hire Law Offices of Jeffrey H. Penneys, P.C. to Represent You
Finally, when you choose our firm to represent you, you pay nothing out of pocket. Nothing. Mr. Penneys will represent you on a contingency-fee-basis, which means that we handle the financial costs of your claim and you only reimburse our legal fees and costs if we win just compensation.
