If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in an attack by a dog or other domestic animal, you need to hire an experienced lawyer to ensure that you receive adequate compensation for your medical costs and pain and suffering.
At Eberhardt & Hale, LLP, we are experienced in representing persons injured as a result of dog/animal attacks. Often, the responsible party in such cases has insurance to pay for the injuries, but unless a skilled attorney is involved, the claims may be under-valued or not paid at all.
Skilled Trial Advocates
Most of our cases settle reasonably quickly, because we prepare them carefully and thoroughly. We will investigate your accident, measure the extent of your injuries and the required medical compensation for you, through a settled negotiation if that is possible.
Some cases do go to trial. Our attorneys are former prosecutors who have successfully handled numerous cases all the way through jury verdicts. If a trial is necessary, our firm will prepare your case and vigorously represent you before the court.
Our goal is to maximize the compensation for you.
What you Should and Should Not Do
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in an accident, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that your rights are protected:
Continue your medical care-and follow your doctor's instructions. Our firm will work closely with your doctor to determine the extent of your injuries and the care you need so we can include those in our compensation demand.
Do not speak with an insurance company- You should let Eberhardt & Hale, LL handle all dealings with insurance companies. We can take the measures necessary to protect your rights and preserve your ability to obtain compensation.
Keep a diary of your experiences-write down what happened before and after the accident, including the names of any witnesses. As your medical treatment continues, make note of your physical pain and any personal difficulties you are experiencing.
