Empathy, Expertise, and Justice: Our Approach to Dog Bite Cases

Dog bites can result in not only physical injuries but also emotional trauma, leaving victims with lasting scars. At Boston Injury Law Group, our team of dedicated dog bite lawyers understands the multifaceted impact of such incidents. This page serves as a comprehensive guide to our services, outlining our approach, the types of cases we handle, and why our clients trust us to pursue justice on their behalf.

Understanding Dog Bite Cases

Dog bite cases involve a unique set of circumstances and legal considerations. Our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of dog bite laws, which may vary by state. In Massachusetts, the law holds dog owners strictly liable for injuries caused by their pets, regardless of the animal’s previous behavior or the owner’s knowledge of its aggressiveness.

Our Approach to Dog Bite Cases

  • Immediate Action: We recognize the urgency of dog bite cases and take immediate action to preserve evidence, document injuries, and assess the circumstances surrounding the incident.
  • Investigation: Our legal team conducts a thorough investigation into the dog bite, gathering information about the dog’s history, the owner’s negligence, and any contributing factors to build a strong case.
  • Medical Documentation: We work closely with medical professionals to ensure that the full extent of your injuries is documented, providing a clear picture of the physical and emotional impact of the dog bite.
  • Negotiation with Insurance Companies: Many dog bite cases are resolved through negotiations with the dog owner’s insurance company. We leverage our negotiation skills to seek fair compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
  • Litigation if Necessary: While we strive for amicable resolutions, our experienced litigators are prepared to take cases to court if necessary, advocating fiercely for our clients in pursuit of maximum compensation.

Types of Dog Bite Cases We Handle

Our expertise extends across various types of dog bite cases, including:

  • Severe Bites and Injuries: Dogs can inflict severe injuries, including deep lacerations, nerve damage, and fractures. We advocate for victims of serious dog bites, ensuring they receive the compensation needed for medical treatment and recovery.
  • Facial Injuries: Dog bites to the face can result in disfigurement and emotional trauma. We address the unique challenges of facial injuries, pursuing compensation for medical procedures, cosmetic surgery, and psychological counseling.
  • Infections and Complications: Dog bites can lead to infections and other complications. Our attorneys ensure that all related medical expenses are considered in the compensation sought for our clients.
  • Child Victims: Children are particularly vulnerable to dog bites, both physically and emotionally. We approach cases involving child victims with sensitivity, seeking compensation for medical care, counseling, and any long-term effects.

Seeking Compensation for Dog Bite Injuries

Victims of dog bites may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including:

  • Medical Expenses: Coverage for all medical costs related to the dog bite, including emergency room visits, surgeries, vaccinations, and ongoing medical care.
  • Lost Income: Reimbursement for income lost due to the inability to work during recovery or due to long-term disability caused by the dog bite.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional distress resulting from the dog bite, including pain, anxiety, and diminished quality of life.
  • Scarring and Disfigurement: Additional compensation for scarring or disfigurement resulting from the dog bite, covering medical procedures and cosmetic treatments.
