Put Our Danville Dog Bite Attorneys On Your Side
Dog bites can result in severe physical and emotional injury, and permanent scarring and disfigurement. According to the American Humane Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs and nearly 900,000 require hospital treatment each year.
Unfortunately, children are the most likely victims among all age groups. The risk increases when more dogs are together, and “pack mentality” increases the likelihood of an attack. In Virginia, owners of dogs are afforded what is often referred to as the “one bite rule.” A dog that you believe has never been aggressive or previously bitten may be afforded that “one bite;” however, a thorough investigation into this issue by an experienced attorney could deny the owner this undeserved protection.

We Have Extensive Experience In Dog Bite Cases
If you have been bitten by someone else’s dog, then you need an attorney who has the jury trial experience that can force the insurance companies to promptly and fairly evaluate your case. Make sure to ask any prospective lawyer if he has successfully tried a dog bite case to a jury verdict. At Haymore & Holland P.C., we have.
Just like dogs, dog bite cases come in all shapes and sizes, and just like dogs, they can be tricky to deal with if you don’t have experience dealing with them. We have successfully helped our clients recover for damages, injuries and medical bills caused by dog bites through both settlement and verdict. Because we know how to develop a case for trial and successfully take a case to a jury, we have a greater chance of obtaining a prompt and fair settlement for you. Compensation may include damages for pain and suffering and inconvenience, reimbursement, or payment for past and future medical bills, including plastic surgery, payment for past and future lost wages, and compensation for scarring or disfigurement.
