SHOULD YOU FILE A CLAIM? 

Have you or your family member suffered a dog bite with injuries?

We agree that there is nothing worse that could happen. Dog bites come so unexpectedly…

But now you might think that it should be easy to receive compensation from your insurance, Colossus. You can even see the dog bite, right?

Well, actually they will do their best NOT to give you the compensation as they will be the ones LOSING their money in such a scenario. And who really wants just to give away their money?

Also, if you have no clue how to file a claim for insurance, you might make some significant mistakes which would allow the insurance company to delay or extend the process with a lawsuit to dry you out, both, financially and emotionally… (it could happen even by just misspelling your name)

This honestly would be the last thing you would expect to go so terribly wrong, won’t you?

All the above should have clearly answered your question of “do I need a lawyer for a dog bite?”

Lawyers specializing in dog bites would help you to MAXIMIZE the settlement amount without facing the financial and emotional costs related to lawsuits.

But it does not end there.

A truly great dog bite defense attorney would leverage his big network of doctors and assist you with finding a doctor that will provide you with excellent care while avoiding to be OVERCHARGED!

This is precisely what our clients get when working with us!

At [BUSINESS NAME], there are actually two crucial things you will get:

First, not only we have worked for decades as the attorney for injured people and as an insurance lawyer, but also have gone through specialized training for Colossus and other insurance company tools that are used to defeat and minimize the value of claims.

This allows us to know EXACTLY what kind of sneaky tricks the insurance company will you use against you to minimize the settlement they offer you.
Second, as we have helped hundreds of people to file their claims for injuries, we have established a long history of fruitful relations with doctors.

This allows us to find you the perfect doctor for your needs.

Not only you will receive excellent care, but also you will not get overcharged! Not to mention that ALL of the doctors we work with are hated by insurance companies.

Why?

Because they fulfill ALL of the medical requirements set out by the insurance companies.

Our clients know that all of this gives you the best chances at receiving the maximum amount of claim while making sure that the injuries incurred are taken care of by the best doctors out there!

So, here’s what we want you to do:
Fill out the form below, and let us help you get the settlement for your dog bite you rightfully deserve.

Don’t drain yourself with the complicated process of insurance claims. Let us help you and get the settlement you genuinely DESERVE!

When Should You {Sue|File a Claim against} the dog owner?

Image result for what action should be taken on owner in dog bite

The short answer is that you {should|ought to|must|need to} {file|submit} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} {against|versus} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner when you have {a valid|a legitimate} case– whether it’s for {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} bite injury or some other loss {caused by|triggered by|brought on by} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}– {and when|when} the {potential|prospective|possible} {result|outcome} would {be worth|deserve} your {time and money|money and time}

. The following {lists|notes} some {general|basic} {indicators|signs|indications} that a victim {should|ought to|must|need to} {heed|observe|follow|hearken} when {considering|thinking about} whether to {file|submit} {a personal injury|an injury|an accident} {lawsuit|suit|claim}, {including|consisting of} both legal and {personal|individual} {indicators|signs|indications}:

  • From a legal {perspective|point of view|viewpoint}, does a victim {actually|really|in fact} hold {a viable|a practical|a feasible} claim for {compensation|payment|settlement}, which {ultimately|eventually} {may|might} be held to legal {standards|requirements} of {negligence|carelessness|neglect} and proximate cause in a courtroom trial?
  • Did the victim sustain damages in excess of the {costs|expenses} of {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} and the {potential|prospective|possible} {financial|monetary} losses {incurred|sustained} in the process of {recovery|healing}? {Often|Frequently|Typically}, victims {facing|dealing with} {long-term|long-lasting} medical {issues|problems|concerns}, medical {bills|expenses|costs}, {rehabilitative|corrective} care, or other {economic|financial} damages {should|ought to|must|need to} {consider|think about} filing suit. Victims {should|ought to|must|need to} {keep in mind|bear in mind|remember} that any future claims for injuries and other damages {must|should|need to} be {included|consisted of} in the {suit|fit|match} or settlement {agreement|contract|arrangement}, as {defendant|accused|offender}’s liability for future damages is {often|frequently|typically} {erased|removed|eliminated} in a settlement or award.
  • Did the victim experience damages, {including|consisting of} non-economic damages, which they feel they {deserve|are worthy of|should have} {compensation|payment|settlement} for, and more {importantly|significantly|notably}, are the {perceived|viewed} non-economic damage claims sustainable from a legal {perspective|point of view|viewpoint}? If so, a victim {should|ought to|must|needs to} {consider|think about} filing suit.
  • Who are the {potentially|possibly} {liable|responsible|accountable} {parties|celebrations}? Though not {based on|based upon} any legal {grounds|premises}, {individual|private|specific} victims are {often|frequently|typically} {hesitant|reluctant} to {sue|take legal action against} {individuals|people} or {small businesses|small companies} not covered by liability {insurance|insurance coverage}. {In most cases|In many cases|For the most parts|Most of the times}, victims {simply|just|merely} {want|desire} {compensation|payment|settlement} for their {economic|financial} losses, and in turn, would {prefer|choose} not to {cause|trigger} {a private|a personal} {individual|specific} or {relatively|fairly|reasonably} {small business|small company} {undue|unnecessary|excessive} {hardship|difficulty|challenge} in {recovering|recuperating} {compensation|payment|settlement}.
  • If {a given|a provided|an offered} injury {presents|provides} major medical {expenses|costs|expenditures}, lost {income|earnings}, {persistent|consistent|relentless} {pain|discomfort}, or otherwise {prevents|avoids} a victim from physically {performing|carrying out} in the {manner|way} they did {before|prior to} {an accident|a mishap} or injury, they {should|ought to|must|need to} {consider|think about} filing suit.

When Should You {Sue|File a Claim against} the Owner?

The short answer is that you {should|ought to|must|need to} {file|submit} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} {against|versus} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner when you have {a valid|a legitimate} case– whether it’s for {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} bite injury or some other loss {caused by|triggered by|brought on by} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}– {and when|when} the {potential|prospective|possible} {result|outcome} would {be worth|deserve} your {time and money|money and time}.

Can You Win the Claim?

{Attack Dog|Dangerous Canine|Vicious Dog} owner can be {held responsible|called to account} when {his or her|his/her} {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {behavior|habits} {leads to|results in|causes} injuries or {property|residential or commercial property|home} damage, {but|however} the {extent|degree|level} of the liability and {what|exactly what} {needs to|has to} be {proven|shown} in a legal case {varies|differs} from {state to state|one state to another}.

In some states, the {Attack Dog|Dangerous Canine|Vicious Dog} owner {is subject to|goes through|undergoes} {strict|stringent|rigorous} liability, {meaning|implying|indicating|suggesting} that fault on the part of the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owner does not {need to|have to} be {established|developed} if the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} bites {someone|somebody}. In these states, {a few|a couple of} {questions|concerns} {usually|typically|normally|generally} {need to|have to} be {resolved|dealt with|fixed|solved} {before|prior to} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owner will be {liable|responsible|accountable}– such as whether the {person|individual} who was bitten was {lawfully|legally} on the {property|residential or commercial property|home} where the bite {occurred|happened|took place}, and whether {he or she|she or he} did anything to provoke the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}.

Other states follow a “one bite” or {negligence|carelessness|neglect} {rule|guideline}, where the focus is on whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} that the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite, and whether the owner took {necessary|required|needed|essential} {precautions|safety measures|preventative measures} {based on|based upon} that {knowledge|understanding}.

Prior to the twentieth century, {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} owner was {only|just} held {liable|responsible|accountable} for his {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s biting {someone|somebody} if the owner had {reason to|need to} {know|understand} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite. This was called the “one bite” {rule|guideline} {because|since|due to the fact that} it {generally|typically|normally|usually} {meant|implied|indicated|suggested} that {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} was {allowed|enabled|permitted} “one {free|totally free|complimentary} bite” {before|prior to} it would get its owner in legal {trouble|difficulty|problem}.

In {modern|contemporary|modern-day} times, the one bite {rule|guideline} does not {necessarily|always} {allow|enable|permit} {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} one {free|totally free|complimentary} bite. If an owner {knows|understands} {the particular|the} {breed|type} {is dangerous|threatens}, or if {the particular|the} {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} might be {prone|susceptible|vulnerable} to biting because of its {general|basic} character or {recent|current} {events|occasions}, he could be {liable|responsible|accountable} for the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {first|very first} bite.

The focus is on whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} that the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite, and whether the owner took {necessary|required|needed|essential} {precautions|safety measures|preventative measures} {based on|based upon} that {knowledge|understanding}. {For example|For instance}, if {a relatively|a fairly|a reasonably} aggressive {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {recently|just recently} {underwent|went through} {surgery|surgical treatment} and the owner did not {warn|caution|alert} {a house|a home} {guest|visitor} not to {pet|animal|family pet} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}, the owner might be held {liable|responsible|accountable} if {the house|your home|your house} {guest|visitor} {aggravated|worsened|intensified|exacerbated} the {area|location} of the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {surgery|surgical treatment} and was {subsequently|consequently} bitten.

Whether the owner {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} {might|may} bite can be {a very|an extremely|a really} {complicated|complex} and {contested|objected to} {question|concern}. The {plaintiff|complainant} will {need to|have to} {provide|offer|supply} {enough|sufficient|adequate} {evidence|proof} to {convince|persuade|encourage} the jury it was “{more likely|most likely} than not” the {defendant|accused|offender} {knew|understood} or {should|ought to|must|need to} have {known|understood}, and the {defendant|accused|offender} will {need to|have to} argue why the {plaintiff|complainant}’s {evidence|proof} is insufficient or {provide|offer|supply} {contradictory|inconsistent} {evidence|proof}.

The {kind of|type of|sort of} {circumstantial evidence|inconclusive evidence} the {plaintiff|complainant} {might|may} {rely on|depend on|count on} {includes|consists of}: the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s {breed|type}, {what|exactly what} the owner {used|utilized} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} for (i.e. {protection|security|defense}), how the owner trained the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}, {neighbors|next-door neighbors}’ experience with the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} and/or {warnings|cautions} from the owner, and how {extensively|thoroughly} the owner {typically|generally|usually|normally} {restrained|limited} the {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}.

Is It Worth It to {Sue|File Claim against} the Owner?

The {dog|canine|pet dog|pet}’s owner {may|might} {very well|extremely well|effectively} be {liable|responsible|accountable} for your injuries or other damages, {but|however} from {a practical|an useful} {standpoint|perspective|viewpoint}, you {need to|have to} ask yourself whether pursuing a legal {remedy|treatment|solution} will {really|truly|actually} {be worth|deserve} the time, {money|cash|loan}, and effort. If you were nipped on the hand and hand {a puncture|a leak} {wound|injury} {treated|dealt with} at the ER, you {might|may} {want to|wish to} {think twice about|reconsider|hesitate about} making a claim. On the other hand, if you{‘ve| have actually} suffered {significant|considerable|substantial} injuries or other losses– {a dog|a canine|a pet dog|a pet} attack {costs|expenses} you {thousands of|countless} dollars in {livestock|animals}, {for example|for instance}– then {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} is {probably|most likely} {a good idea|a smart idea|a great idea}.

Texas hold {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} owners {liable|responsible|accountable} for the {harm|damage} or damage that their animal {causes|triggers} to {people|individuals} or other {dogs|canines|pet dogs|pets}.

  2.

If you’re {thinking about|considering|thinking of} {filing|submitting} {a lawsuit|a suit|a claim} over {dog|canine|pet dog|pet} bite injuries, you {need to|have to} {pay attention to|take note of|focus on|take notice of} and {abide by|follow|comply with} this {deadline|due date}.
