What do I do if I have been bitten by a dog?.
Hello. You’re researching online, about a dog bite injury – so I have to assume either you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite injury and for that I’m very sorry.
My name is Jim DuBach. I’m with Hankey Marks & Crider.
For many, many years we have represented individuals: adults and many times children, unfortunately, who have been bitten, sometimes attacked and bitten, by a dog. Oftentimes resulting in facial injuries. Oftentimes disfiguring injuries. These are very serious matters as unfortunately you know so well.
There is a lot of misinformation about dog bite situations. You may hear that a dog is not responsible if it’s never bitten anyone before, or the owner’s not responsible for what the dog does depending upon the situation. Oftentimes these are myths, they’re false. It is very likely that you may be able to receive compensation for this dog bite. You will not do so if you do not follow this one simple recommendation that I have to you.
I want to share this very important recommendation; and that is to seek legal counsel immediately from an experienced attorney who has handled dog bite cases. Again, these facts are unique. Big cases are very fact specific. What type of dog it was? Where was the situation? Where did it occur? Who’s property did it occur on? Please don’t make assumptions that you do not have a claim because you very well likely would have one, and do have one.
Again, my name is Jim DuBach, I’m with Hankey Marks & Crider. We have helped many people with dog bite cases. These are cases that involve psychological aspects as well as physical.
I recommend that you give me a call about your situation. Jim DuBach, Hankey Marks & Crider. Thank you.
