Home insurance claims might be possible

If the person who owns the dog has insurance, you might be able to file a claim with that insurer. Of course, this might not cover all of your expenses related to the incident, so you must be sure to think carefully about other possibilities. You should also make sure that you are communicating properly with the insurance company. The last thing that you need is for your claim to be denied or reduced because of a misstatement or a misconstrued statement. We can handle communication withe insurance company representative and anyone else necessary.

Think about the past, present and future

When you are thinking about the expenses of the injury, don’t think only about past expenses. You also have to think about the expenses you recently incurred and the ones you will incur in the future. All of this comes together to help us determine the damages to claim in your case.

Review all offers for a settlement

You might be presented with a settlement offer. Think carefully about the offer and the terms. You need to ensure that you have enough money to cover the damages, but you also need to think about other points like how long a trial will take and whether you are willing to put your case in the hands of a jury or not.
