A dog bite can be a traumatic experience no matter the age of the victim. Those who are victims of dog bites often suffer from more than just physical injuries like lacerations or permanent scarring. Dog attack victims often also experience emotional trauma from the attack, especially if they are younger.
Both the physical and psychological effects are compensable, but you do need to enlist the services of a Morristown personal injury attorney who has experience with filing dog bite claims. At The Terry Law Firm, we can help you with such claims, having provided legal services to residents of East Tennessee since 1960. When you work with our team, we will make every effort to help you recover compensation for the injuries and trauma you have suffered through no fault of your own.
Many victims think that they don't have the basis for a claim if the dog is not one that is deemed to be a vicious. In fact, owners of dogs that are usually mild-mannered and do not have a history of attacking people can still be held responsible for injuries their pets cause. Furthermore, people are unnecessarily intimidated by the thought of hiring an attorney, especially for a minor-seeming claim like a dog bite or animal attack.
The amount that is awarded for physical and psychological damage often hinges on having an experienced lawyer to represent your interests. At The Terry Law Firm, we have the in-depth knowledge and experience needed to create a strong and detailed claim on your behalf, and will work tirelessly towards getting the maximum amount of compensation possible.
