How much is my dog bite injury claim worth?
How much is your dog bite case worth? We were recently contacted by a man who sustained a dog bite, and he had that same exact question. The response to that question is that it depends on many different factors. It depends on how badly the person is injured, for one. Also, how much are their medical bills? Are they going to have to miss time from work and, if so, how much time from work? How extensive is their medical treatment going to be? What has this done to them? How has this affected them? How has this affected their family? Has it had any external impact on marriages and relationships with their children or other relatives?
Every case is a little bit different, and every case involves a whole variety of damages. To say right away how much a personal injury case is worth is very, very difficult. A case might also involve what they call punitive damages. If, for example in the context of a dog bite case, the dog had not only shown vicious propensities in the past, which is a necessary element in order to bring a successful dog bite case in Georgia, but has actually attacked people in the past and hurt them, the jury might feel that it is necessary to award punitive damages, which can greatly increase the amount of any dog bite case.
I would urge anyone at home who has any questions about a dog bite case to contact a lawyer who has experience prosecuting personal injury cases and, most importantly, experience successfully prosecuting claims involving dog bites. You want to find a trial lawyer who has had experience in litigation and, specifically, in litigation involving dog bites. They are similar to other personal injury actions, but they do have some nuances that make them unique.
If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a dog bite case, we’d be more than happy to sit down and answer any questions that you might have about dog bite case value.
