angry dog barking and showing teeth | Compensation after a Dog BiteDog bites are serious injuries that can cause significant damage and long-lasting injury. In fact, the CDC states that 27,000 dog bite victims each year undergo significant reconstructive surgery in an attempt to repair damages from their attacks. In Colorado, people are able to seek compensation after a dog bite for their injuries, however, without an attorney on their side, they may not be able to recover the money they truly deserve. Dog bite injuries require the skills and resources of an experienced Colorado dog bite attorney immediately. At Paysinger Law P.C., our law firm has been helping injured dog bite victims  obtain the money they need for decades.

A serious dog attack can result in acute injuries that can require $250,000 to $1 million in specialized medical care. From expensive and extensive reconstructive surgeries to skin grafts and scar therapy, a dog bite victim may require multiple procedures and surgeries over years. Even then, they may not be able to fully recover from their accident.

After a dog bite, victims are able to seek compensation for a wide range of damages, including:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of lifestyle

Claims can be made against the dog owner for negligence or against a third party, if that third party is partly responsible for the injury suffered. Unfortunately, many injured accident victims are reluctant to file a lawsuit or seek compensation through civil action because the dog owner may be a friend or neighbor. Yet, injured accident victims should understand that the compensation recovered in a dog bite claim typically comes from their homeowner’s insurance policy and not directly from their pockets. In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, dog bites accounted for more than 33% of all homeowners’ liability claims in 2013 and together these claims paid out more than $483 million in compensation for accident victims.
