Can I Afford a Lawyer?

Michigan Dog Bite Attorney

One of the main concerns that most of our clients have is the cost of working with an attorney on their dog bite claim. Is it actually worth it to retain the services of a lawyer in seeking financial compensation? First, it is important to mention that our legal representation costs dog bite victims no out-of-pocket expenses. Your initial consultation is conducted entirely free of charge, and if we work together on your dog bite claim you will pay no legal fees unless we are successful in recovering compensation on your behalf. Because an experienced Michigan personal injury lawyer is most often able to recover a settlement amount that is up to 5 or even 10 times the amount that an insurance adjuster would offer, a dog bite victim recovers more even after paying a percentage of his or her recovery for legal counsel.

The Difference a Lawyer Can Make in Financial Recovery

For example, let's say Bob is bitten by a dog and suffers a fairly serious injury to his arm, limiting the use of his hand for a while and also causing severe scarring. The insurance adjuster of the dog owner's insurance company may contact Bob and offer him a $30,000 settlement. If Bob has not had his claim reviewed by a skilled lawyer, he may think that the $30,000 will be enough for his medical bills. Maybe it is.

However, a lawyer would take a number of other factors into account, including the emotional trauma of the accident, the scarring, the limited use of the hand, and much more. Although this is an entirely hypothetical example, it is possible that an attorney would be able to recover up to $200,000, $300,000 or even more in some cases. What if the dog owner actually instructed the dog to attack? Bob may be able to receive punitive damages as well. Contact a Michigan dog bite lawyer from our office to learn more!
