Hire a dog bite attorney as soon as possible after a dog attack in order to ensure the strongest lawsuit. Our dog bite lawyers at Brent Adams & Associates will advise you on strategic ways to organize your case so that you receive the highest compensation possible. Here are a few tips for your dog bite lawsuit:
- Organized paperwork - medical records, police reports, photographs
- Document lost income - pay stubs and doctor notes
- Protect your credit score - you may not be able to afford medical treatment for your dog bite. Attorneys can draft a Letter of Protection to give to creditors who will agree to hold late notices until you receive compensation.
- Copy records from Animal Control
If you're suffering from a dog bite and an insurance company is approaching you to sign a settlement agreement--do not sign the agreement until you speak with a Raleigh dog bite attorney at Brent Adams & Associates. You will be missing out on extra compensation if you accept the first figure presented to you. Insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. The dog bite victim may suffer long-term effects from the dog attack; signing a settlement agreement will make future claims void.
Discuss your dog attack and learn your rights by contacting a dog bite lawyer at one of our Raleigh, Fayetteville or Dunn offices at 800.849.5931.
