What Compensation Am I Entitled To?
When you are involved in a dog attack, there are going to be many damages that you have to face. Dog bite trauma is a huge part of it. The psychological damage that you face after being involved in an incident like this is likely going to be significant.
You can experience depression, anxiety, panic disorder, and phobia of dogs after being involved in a bog attack. Children can experience PTSD right away after having been involved in a dog attack.
If this has happened to you, we are deeply sorry that this is your reality. Please know that you deserve to have full compensation for this damage and many other damages that you face during an interaction with a vicious dog.
A settlement award will not only cover damages for dog bite trauma, but it will cover the costs of your medical treatment, lost wages/lost earning capacity, scarring and disfigurement, and more.
Essentially if your life has been negatively impacted by this incident, regardless of whether it is because you cannot work, cannot go to school, suffer PTSD, have scarring on your face, etc. you can receive compensation for it.
What Should My First Steps Be?
Immediately after you have been attacked or bitten by a dog, you should seek medical attention. It is believed that when children go through this trauma, they should be exposed to a dog afterward to try to limit the amount of dog bite trauma that they go through.
After the victim seeks medical attention, it is important to seek the help of a lawyer right away. We want to build your case as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations in New York State. You have three years from the date of your accident to bring a claim, but there is a lot of work that goes into building a successful claim.
Also, you need to act quickly so that we can preserve evidence that is vital to the success of your claim.
