Daytona Beach Dog Bite Attorneys
If you or a loved one has suffered from a dog bite accident, it is important that you seek the professional advice of an attorney experienced in handling dog bite injuries. When choosing your dog bite accident attorney, you should consider such things as the following:
- The fee structure.
- How the Volusia County attorney will communicate with you.
- Dog bite accident experience.
Typically a dog bite accident attorney will utilize a contingency fee agreement when charging you for his or her services. Essentially, what this means is that the attorney will only get paid if successful in getting you compensated for your dog bite accident injuries. If you are compensated, then the attorney will collect an agreed upon percentage of the total amount you receive. If you are not compensated for your dog bite accident injuries, then your attorney will not be compensated.
As a dog bite accident claim is a stressful process, it is important that your dog bite accident attorney keep you updated on your claim’s progress on a regular basis. There should be a clear client communication policy that outlines how and when your lawyer will update you, whether it be via phone, email or one-on-one meetings.
Perhaps most important is to get a clear understanding of the attorney’s experience with dog bite accident claims. At the very least, your attorney should be familiar with the relevant dog bite laws and regulations and how they apply to your particular personal injury claim. For example, unlike other personal injury claims that typically involve only a showing of negligence, in a dog bite accident claim, particular laws on dangerous dog breeds could be applicable. An experienced Florida dog bite accident attorney will have a clear perspective of the scope of your claim and be best equipped for protecting your legal rights and obtaining the compensation you deserve.
