A dog bite attack can be a traumatic event resulting in serious injuries. Often, dog bite victims require emergency medical care, medications to treat infections, and in serious cases reconstructive surgery to address facial cuts and lacerations. These expenses can result in a serious financial burden. Fortunately, the dog owner can be held accountable for your damages.
There are several important things to consider when choosing a dog bite lawyer in Connecticut. Make sure you look for an attorney who has the following qualifications:
- Makes personal injury law a primary focus of their practice, and has extensive experience handling dog bite cases
- Has a track record of success supported by lucrative verdicts and settlements and positive references from past clients
- Places a commitment on delivering the highly personalized care you deserve
- Works on a contingency fee basis - in other words, there are no upfront costs to you, and they only get paid if you win
You will also want to find a dog bite lawyer in Connecticut that you can trust. You will be working closely with your lawyer for several months. It is important to have a good working relationship and feel confident that your attorney has your best interests at heart.
