Were you or someone you love attacked by a dog? You may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Watch this video to learn more about dog bite case value and how it is determined. Read Our FREE Dog Bite Guide
When you’re bitten by a dog in New York and you’re trying to figure out what your case is worth, it depends on a lot of different factors. First and foremost, the type of injury that you have, the past pain and suffering up to this point, and understanding what can be expected in the future. Either through your own doctors or experts that we select, we determine what kind of pain and suffering there is, what kind of scarring there will be, what is going to be left moving forward from this case in 10 years from now, how you’re going to feel, and how you’re going to be doing. These are very important things to look at in determining the compensation, and it is something that may not be known clearly right away.
You may have a general idea, when you first hire your attorney and you had your bite, of the value of the case. It’s the type of thing you really need to make sure it’s flushed out properly, as well as any lost wages, and medical bills that can be reasonably expected, not just in the past but into the future. It’s important to have an attorney who understands all this, who cares about all this, who’s going to fight for you, and who’s experienced in understanding the value of these types of cases. If someone tells you a number right away, unless it’s very clear, that might not always be the best number to take.
