Dog Bog Injury Lawyer Discusses How Lawsuits Work
Dog bit lawyer Darryl Isaacs — The Hammer — sat down to address the most popular questions about dog bite cases. Listen to the “How Dog Bite Lawsuits Work” episode of the Ask The Hammer podcast by clicking below.
Experienced Dog Bite Law Firm Handles the Most Severe Cases
A dog bite occurs every 75 seconds in the US resulting in 1,000 trips to the emergency room daily. The cost of dog bite treatment has risen dramatically according to the Insurance Liability Institute, from $19,164 in 2003, to $27,862 in 2013, to $32,072 in 2014.
Unfortunately, many times the situation goes beyond a deep puncture wound, resulting in dog bite infection, major surgery or even death. If hospitalization is required the average stay is three days. If surgery or multiple surgeries is/are required, the costs could be overwhelming. With such high emotional and monetary stakes, you need the support of an experienced law firm with a reputation for unquestionable commitment to victims.
