No, there’s no way of attaching a dollar amount to losing one’s sense of safety and confidence after the trauma of being attacked by a dog. That’s why at Lawrence M. Knapp we consult with medical experts, psychiatrists, and animal trainers to establish dog owner liability and the scope of injuries suffered by our clients. Don’t blame yourself or your child – dog bite law has changed and liability can be established for a single bite. Dog bites can cause disfigurement, nerve damage, and infections if not properly treated. And, when children are involved, the psychological effects of being attacked by a dog can be long lasting.
We know how to handle insurance companies and aren’t fooled by their tactics. We’re prepared to front the costs associated with a thorough investigation and engaging expert witnesses.
