If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, hiring legal counsel is something to seriously consider. Dog bites are not always a minor matter, in San Diego or anywhere else. Your dog bite attorney should be someone who understands the depth of trauma that can accompany this experience.
These facts dispel the notion that dog bites are usually minor matters. Many people also dismiss dog bites because the animal involved belongs to a friend or to the household of a child's friend. If a bite is serious enough to require medical attention, it is probably serious enough to warrant a discussion with a dog bite attorney. For cases of this nature it also makes sense to hire a San Diego dog bite attorney so that the process of investigation and medical inquiries can be conducted by local professionals.
Costs associated with a dog bite are often absorbed by homeowners' insurance. So seeking compensation from a dog owner you know isn't a demand for personal compensation, it's a request for insurance reimbursement that is built into normal household coverage. A dog bite attorney can keep that particular issue on a professional level by removing you from all negotiations with the insurance carrier.
If a lawsuit for pain and suffering seems to be in order, your dog bite attorney can maximize your compensation by putting the injury and the resulting trauma into context. A quality dog bite lawyer can make it clear to an insurance carrier or to a court just how serious and long lasting the mental and physical damages from a dog bite can be. The Law Offices of Anna R. Yum can provide you with that attorney.
