Recovering From A Dog Bite

Despite how we may feel about dogs, they all have the potential to bite us and cause serious injuries. If an injury like this has happened to you, you need to be sure you are earning the fair compensation you need to cover the current and future costs of your injuries.

At Ballard Law LLC, you can find the representation you are looking for to earn the settlement you deserve. My name is Jason Ballard, and I am an experienced personal injury attorney with a history of helping my clients recover from the reckless and negligent actions of others. My goal as your legal representation is to maximize the money you earn from your injury claim, and the first step to doing that is identifying what your claim is worth.

What A Dog Bite Injury Claim Is Worth

Like other personal injury claims, the compensation from your claim should reflect the current and future costs of your injuries and also include punitive damages to hold the liable party accountable for their actions. Common forms of damages in a claim include lost income, medical expenses, the cost of living with paralysis, emotional trauma and pain and suffering. In addition to pursuing the outcome you are looking for in your injury claim, I can also help you navigate the unique laws related to your claim.

The “One Bite” Law

Each state has unique laws. In Virginia, for example, there is a rule that can make it easy for plaintiffs to secure the compensation they need after a dog bite. If they can present information proving that the defendant knew or should have known that their dog had the potential to bite, and the court accepts it, the owner may be held responsible for the dog bite and the resulting consequences. I can act on your behalf to present the most favorable case to prove the defendant had or should have had this knowledge to protect your best interests.
