      The sooner you call us – the stronger your case will be. The insurance company is actively working against you. Don’t risk making a mistake. The more you speak to the insurance company – the more likely you will be to say something that can decrease the value of your claim.  The insurance company is not your friend. Insurance companies can’t use anything your lawyer says against you.  The insurance company can use anything you say directly to them against you later. Let us handle them for you.  

      Don’t risk losing money.  Insurance council studies show that injured people with legal representation get 3.5 times more money from their claims than people without representation.

      Representing Clients Suffering From Dog Bites in Bowie, Frederick, Lexington Park & Waldorf

      Dogs are considered man’s best friend and generally live up to that title. A dog owner must train the animal properly and ensure that the dog will live in an enclosed and secure area to prevent potential injury. However, there are still many instances wherein someone is injured or wrongfully killed because of a dog bite. Under state law, any dog owner who fails to exercise reasonable care in preventing someone’s injury or controls the animal properly can be held legally accountable for any injuries the dog causes.

      How Common Are Dog Bites?

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the U.S., with one in five of those bites requiring medical attention. Sadly, most dog bite victims who suffer serious injuries are children. In some cases, the damage is so extensive that it requires reconstructive surgery and may leave a victim with permanent scars or disfigurement.

      Some additional injuries that can be sustained from a dog attack include:

      According to a study conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, there are thousands of emergency room visits and hospital stays related to dog bites every year. Treatment costs are considerable: up to $18,200 for a hospital stay, a figure that represents 50 percent more than the average injury-related stay and doesn’t consider the pain and suffering experienced by the victims.

      What To Do After a Dog Bite

      If a dog bites you, make sure to do the following:

      • Obtain identification and contact information from the dog’s owner. You should identify the owner or caretaker of the dog, getting names and addresses in the event you need to contact them. Ask whether the dog is current on shots, especially rabies. Treatment for rabies is painful and expensive, and the shots are given in a series, which can be extremely inconvenient.
      • Seek appropriate medical treatment. If the dog bite is severe or you’re unsure about the status of rabies shots, seek medical treatment immediately. You should call 9-1-1 or head to the emergency room to have your wounds cleaned, disinfected, stitched up, or other appropriate measures. The risk of infection from a dog bite is high, and your injuries can be compounded if it does occur.
      • File proper documentation for a dog bite report. No matter how minor your injuries are, you should file a dog bite report with the relevant authorities. This ensures the incident is legally documented, which supports your case when you pursue the dog’s owner for compensation.
      • Photograph your injuries. Your medical records will be important in any personal injury action against the dog’s owner, but take photos of your injuries. Include all wounds in your images, including lacerations, bruises, bite marks, and other injuries. You should also photograph any torn or bloodied clothing and the location of the attack.
      • Start keeping a journal. Pain and suffering are considerable factors in dog bite cases, and keeping a journal will support your legal claims. Take some time each day to record your pain level, what you needed to do to treat your injuries and your emotional state. Your case may take months – or even years – to settle or go to court, so the journal will help you recall your experience.
      • Consult with a Maryland dog bite attorney.

      If you’ve been injured in a vicious dog bite attack and you’ve been putting off contacting an experienced trial attorney, like the attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, because you’re concerned about how you’ll afford to be represented, you don’t need to worry. Our attorneys will help you, will guide you through, and we’ll fully fund your litigation. We don’t charge anything until we win your case.

      When a dog owner has a particularly vicious dog, especially one that’s attacked someone before, they have a heightened duty to protect the public from that vicious animal. If they don’t, and you’re injured because of that, you’re entitled to recovery.

      The experienced dog bite trial attorneys at Alpert Schreyer will listen to you, will walk you through the process, and help you to get full medical recovery. As well as full and fair compensation for the injuries that you’ve suffered as a result of this vicious attack.

      The number one most important thing is to call a trial attorney who has experience handling dog bite cases.

      At Alpert Schreyer, LLC, we know the steps necessary to make sure that you recover as much as possible in terms of your health, as well as in getting fairly and fully compensated for your injuries.

      One of the biggest mistakes that we see clients make when they have a dog bite injury is talking with the insurance company directly before they’ve spoken with an experienced trial attorney. When you call Alpert Schreyer, LLC, our experienced attorneys will guide you through and help make sure that you don’t make any misstatements to the insurance company. If you talk to the insurance company on your own, they will try to lessen your ability to recover full and fair compensation for your injuries.

      After you’ve been attacked by a dog, it’s extremely important that you report your injury to doctors and get good medical care. The second thing you need to do is contact the experienced dog bite attorneys at Alpert Schreyer, LLC. We’ll walk you through what to do and what to avoid, to make sure that you’re able to recover full and fair compensation for your case. We offer free consultations. You will pay nothing to talk with us. You don’t pay us until we win your case.

      The answer to that question is dependent on a few things. First, is how long it takes for you to recover with good medical treatment. Only then can we assess what your medical bills are and other impacts such as lost wages or changes to the way you live your life. Only after we understand all of that, can we fully determine what the value of your case is. The attorneys at Alpert Schreyer will fight to make sure you get full and fair compensation.

      The answer to that is complicated. The attorneys at Alpert Schreyer can walk you through your case based upon the injuries, the recovery, the medical bills, and if any long lasting or permanent problems you have because of this dog attack. If you’ve been the victim of a vicious dog bite, contact the attorneys at Alpert Schreyer and we’ll walk you through it.
