Why Hire a Dog Bite Lawyer?
Los Angeles Dog Bite Claims and Lawsuits
Many people think that by hiring a Los Angeles dog bite lawyer they may be subjected to a lengthy case in civil court, but the truth of the matter is that the majority of dog bite claims are settled outside of court, by way of negotiated settlements. Working with a lawyer does not mean that the case will have to be litigated in court - it simply means that the dog bite victim will have a better opportunity of having his or her rights and interests fully protected, and therefore have more of a chance to recover the full value of his or her claim. If necessary, a dog bite lawyer can take the case to civil court, but this is usually only done as a last resort if a negotiated settlement cannot be reached and this is in the best interests of the victim.
Working with a lawyer gives you freedom in seeking a higher settlement and also working to ensure that the dog is not put down, if that is what you want. Depending on the situation, the dog owner may be a friend or even a family member, and you may wish to make sure that the dog is not euthanized. Or, the dog may have been particularly vicious and dangerous, and you want to take action to ensure that the dog cannot hurt anyone else. Your dog bite lawyer can talk to you about your options and will follow your wishes in this regard.
