Seeking Justice After A Dog Bite

When you or a loved one experiences a dog bite, it can be a traumatic experience. Suddenly the same creatures that seemed harmless and friendly can be terrifying.

At The Backer Law Firm, we understand the emotional trauma and long-lasting effects that can result from a dog bite. It is important to note that most dog bite injuries occur among children, and the decision to pursue justice can be difficult. We are here to guide you through the process, explain your options and provide the legal support you need. If you or your loved one has experienced a dog bite injury in Independence or the greater Kansas City area, we are ready to help you seek justice and compensation.

Understanding The Impact

A dog bite can cause severe physical and emotional trauma. Injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to more severe consequences such as permanent scarring, nerve damage and infections. Additionally, the victim may face significant medical bills for treatments, surgeries and rehabilitation. We recognize that recovering from a dog bite injury can be challenging, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

Exploring Your Options

When it comes to pursuing justice after a dog bite, it is essential to understand that it is typically not a direct lawsuit against an individual. Similar to other premises liability claims, often, the dog owner’s insurance company will handle the claim and provide compensation for damages. Our experienced lawyer will work diligently to navigate the complex legal process on your behalf, negotiating with the insurance company to secure a fair settlement that covers medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
