Dog Bite Victims: Get the Compensation You Need
The physical damage caused by a dog bite can be severe. It can involve scarring and damage that requires expensive plastic surgery to repair. Of course, the injury may not just be physical. Particularly when the victim is a child, there can be emotional damage as well.
You deserve compensation for all the harm caused by the dog bite. If you or someone you care about, such as your child, have been hurt by a dog, the personal injury attorneys at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson, Covelli & McPherson, are here to help you. We have more than 100 years of combined experience serving people in Monmouth, Ocean and Hudson Counties and the surrounding parts of New Jersey.
The Right Approach to Each Case
At the law firm of Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson, Covelli & McPherson, we understand that dog bite cases often involve close relationships that the victims don’t want to damage with a lawsuit.
Frequently, the dog that bit the victim belongs to the victim’s friend, the victim’s family member or the victim’s neighbor. Even though the victim wants compensation, they don’t want to ruin the life of someone they care about.
That’s not something you have to worry about. In dog bite cases, we do not file a lawsuit against the dog owner. We file a lawsuit against that person’s insurance company. We simply want to make sure the insurance company provides all the compensation necessary. That’s why the dog owner has insurance in the first place.
The Experience to Get Results in Dog Bite Cases
Insurance companies are not always willing to hand over compensation. This unwillingness to work with injured people is unfortunate since that is precisely why people pay insurance premiums. Still, as businesses, they want to keep their money in their pockets.
We take great care to build strong lawsuits to make them pay. Frequently, we go so far as to put together exhibits far before the court date. We take these exhibits to negotiations, not only to prove our point to the insurance company but to make it clear to them that we are serious about seeing the case through to get you the compensation you need.
Legal Representation With No Upfront Fees
We represent clients who are injured by dog bites on a contingency fee basis. This fee structure means you are only required to pay attorney’s fees if we are successful in getting compensation for your injuries.
