Learn About Your Rights After A Serious Injury In Erie
Those responsible for your injuries or the harm suffered by a loved one usually include the owner of the animal or the owner of the property where you were attacked. At the Quinn Law Firm, we know the right questions to ask, and we will research your case to see if you have a personal injury claim.
Lasting scarring or disfigurement, the possibility of infection and possible development of post-traumatic syndrome are a few of the long-term consequences that are common after dog bites and other animal attacks. A dog bite or an attack by any animal is frightening when it first occurs. First, seek emergency care immediately. After the fact, there may be lasting physical or psychological damage relating to ugly and embarrassing scars.
The attack victim may require expensive plastic surgery. In the case of small children, plastic surgeons may recommend that such restorative surgery take place at some future time when skin is more mature. A just legal settlement must take these factors into account so that you have the financial resources to pay for the medical treatment when the time is right. We also offer integrated estate and tax planning services when structuring your settlement.
Seek The Assistance Of A Skilled Lawyer
Our lawyers are well-informed and knowledgeable in a wide range of medical fields of knowledge relevant to serious injuries. We understand insurance and Pennsylvania dog bite and animal attack laws, and we know how to pursue and obtain the compensation that victims need. We will advise anyone who has been injured, including the following:
- A child victim who wandered onto the property where a dog was kept
- A young adult who is likely to have facial scars that may put their career and personal life at risk
- A visiting friend or family member who was bitten by a vicious dog on its own premises
- Anyone who was attacked by an animal that was allowed by its owners to roam off its property
Animal attack claims are taken a contingency basis in most cases, meaning that you do not pay lawyer fees unless we obtain a verdict or settlement on your behalf. However, you may incur some out-of-pocket costs as we develop your case.
