Vero Beach Dog Bite Attorney

If you or a loved one suffered injuries from a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation.

Dog bite injuries can be very serious and often result in permanent scarring. The scarring is more than just a cosmetic problem. Many children who are bitten by dogs become terrified of dogs and generally fearful after being bitten.

Financial compensation cannot make up for the fear a child experiences associated with a dog bite. However, it can provide for psychological counseling to help him or her deal with the fear that dogs may now cause. Whether the victim was a child or adult, we can help obtain payment that can aid the healing process.

Unfortunately, the prevalence of large and aggressive dogs such as Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and German Shepherds, has led to an increase in the number of dog bite cases each year.

The White Law Group investigates the circumstances of the incident, working with medical experts to assess the accurate measure of damages associated with your dog bite. In cases with expensive plastic surgeries or skin grafts, our law firm analyzes both the insurance coverage and the assets of the dog owner. In this way, we ensure that we obtain maximum compensation for clients.

If you or your child was bitten by a dog and would like a free consultation with a Vero Beach personal injury attorney, please call The White Law Group at 772-242-9330.  For more information on The White Law Group, visit http://www.wlgattorneys.com.

Asset protection is the process by which one employs strategies and legal structures designed to shield your assets from the reach of creditors, business partners, the I.R.S. and ex-spouses.
