Was Your Child Attacked by a Dog in Hartford?
Unfortunately, far too many dog bite victims are children, and fighting for full compensation for a child injured by a dog is a complex process. While a child’s body can heal faster than an adult’s, the long-term impact of a bite on a child’s developing body can be severe, including damage to growth plates and scarring of the skin. The emotional impact can also be devastating.
When we represent children injured in dog bites, we take the time to account for all of these factors and advocate for full compensation. We frequently retain expert witnesses, including plastic surgeons who are specially trained in repairing damaged portions of children’s bodies. Our goal is to fight for full compensation to maximize your child’s recovery and quality of life.
We Understand Dog Bites Cases In Hartford
We understand the sensitive nature of many dog attacks. In many cases, injury victims know the owner of the dog. The dog's owner could be a friend, a relative or a neighbor. That's why many people are reluctant to take legal action after a dog attack.
We know how to handle such complicated situations. In most cases, we deal directly with the dog owner's insurance company. That way, your friend or relative doesn't have to be directly involved - and you don't have to pay for your injuries out of your own pocket. In many cases, the funds we recover from the insurance company can pay for skin grafts, reconstructive surgery and other procedures needed to minimize scarring and other damage from the dog attack.
Don't underestimate the financial impact of your Hartford dog attack. A dog bite can easily add up to thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost income, reconstructive surgery and more. That's why it's critical that you take legal action immediately after your Hartford dog attack. That's why we want to meet with you right away. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation with a Hartford dog bite lawyer you can count on in a crisis.
