Ryan is hard at work gathering information regarding these types of cases so that future clients are better prepared to fight off the onslaught of bad faith insurance claims adjusters and negligent property owners looking to undervalue—or deny—what is rightfully owed to them.

What Determines a Dog Bite’s Severity?

While even a minor nip can be traumatic, severe dog bites are often life-changing. Several categories defined by veterinarians exist to determine how much suffering a victim undergoes. They are:

Keep in mind that anything other than a pre-bite would be a good idea to get checked out by your local hospital. There, your doctor can mend any wounds and treat any infections while documenting what injury you sustained, what treatment you were given, and how much it all cost. This will prove valuable if you decide to file a personal injury claim in the future.

What You Can Win in a Dog Bite Injury Claim

Because dog bites often require multiple surgeries to correct, medical expenses can get pretty steep. When they begin to pile up, victims of dog bites can feel lost, overwhelmed, or unheard. Attorney Ryan C. Solis, however, hears your cries and fights negligent dog owners, as well as greedy claims adjusters, to get you the money you need to recover.

His specific set of legal skills can help you recover damages for but not limited to:

Aside from these expenses, a victim of a dog bite can sue a dog owner for punitive damages as a punishment. Don’t hesitate for long, however. In the State of Texas, dog bites have a two (2) year time period from when the injury happened to file a personal injury claim.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Dog Bites?

Some homeowners and rental insurance policies may cover dog bites, with the amount of money you may receive reaching up to $100,000 to even $300,000. Any amount after that must be covered by the dog owner.

However, some homeowners and rental insurance companies will not offer coverage if the breed of dog is considered aggressive or that particular dog was deemed dangerous. If a dog does lash out, it may continue to be a risk that can cause a drop of coverage or raised premiums.

Insurance companies, however, are notorious for making up excuses to slash down or deny your personal injury claim, possibly even using the above as an excuse. That’s why you need an experienced dog bite injury attorney to fight for the money you deserve.
