At Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., we have handled more than 100 animal attack claims. We understand the emotional trauma of an animal attack, especially for children who can be traumatized at such a young age.
Our attorneys have the experience often associated with large law firms but provide the individualized attention our clients deserve. We will work relentlessly to make sure the at-fault pet owner's insurance adjuster sees you as an individual, not as another claim number. We want them to understand how your life has been affected so you can secure the full amount of compensation you are entitled to as a result of the dog owner.
Seeking Compensation Through The Dog Owner's Insurance
Most homeowners insurance policies cover expenses related to dog bites or animal attacks. However, in some cases, homeowners avoid telling their insurance company about owning a dog, especially if the animal is from a breed known to be dangerous.
In that case, the insurance company may try to deny the premises liability claim, but that isn't a roadblock for our attorneys. We have extensive experience negotiating with insurance adjusters and pursuing claims against negligent pet owners' property and assets. An animal attack can result in serious injuries. Our firm is prepared to hold pet owners responsible.
Traumatic Injuries Deserve Fair Compensation
A victim's face, arms and legs are primarily the targets for dog bites, but the worst type of injury is often the psychological trauma of an animal attack. Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., pursues maximum compensation to cover our clients' medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any lost wages, if time away from work is needed. If our clients need counseling to deal with the psychological impact of a dog bite injury, we will demand a settlement that covers the costs of counseling.
