Dog Bite Settlement Offers
Were you or a loved one attacked by a dog in New York? Don’t get low-balled by the insurance company. Watch this video to find out what’s important to know about dog bite settlement offers.
When someone is bitten by a dog in New York, there will often be, depending on the case and depending on the situation, offers made by insurance companies. It’s important that when that initial offer is made, you really think about it and it’s really looked into and investigated by your attorney. What I mean by that is when that offer is first made, you have to feel comfortable and understand what your injuries are going to be like in the future. Often, with dog bite cases, we’re talking about scarring.
A few months after an accident, a scar could look a certain way, whether it may get better or whether it may stay the same; it may take some time to see how that develops. When you get those initial offers, it’s important not necessarily to jump at whatever is being offered, but to really think about it carefully and make sure that you don’t regret, later on, taking that. This is something that you’ll work through with your attorney, to make sure you have the proper understanding of all the information, and to make a smart decision about whether or not to take that offer.
