Many dog bite claims in the U.S. are unsuccessful because people think that they do not need to hire a lawyer for something seemingly simple. However, insurance companies are reluctant to pay out to victims of dog bites. In the event an insurance company does decide to compensate a victim, they often offer them significantly less that what their case is actually worth. Examples of damages that are often successfully pursued in a dog bite case include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Loss of quality of life
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Compensation for permanent scarring
