McKinney Dog Bite Damages

There is a wide range of types of compensation an injured party may seek after a dog attack. After someone has suffered a dog bite injury, they may be able to collect economic damages. Economic damages include past and future medical treatment, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and other out-of-pocket expenses. The injured victim can also receive non-economic damages. Non-economic damages include physical impairment, disfigurement, emotional anguish, and pain and suffering.

There is no legal damage cap when it comes to dog bite cases. In certain cases, such as medical malpractice, there may be statutory limits on how much one can recover. However, this is not the case with dog bite claims. The various types of McKinney dog bite damages that affect the compensation the injured victim is able to receive depends on the types of injuries, the dog’s previous behavior, the dog owner’s actions, and the degree of the attack. For more information about McKinney dog bite damages, consult with a seasoned dog bite attorney.

Severity of Injuries Impact on Compensation

Typically, the more severe the injury is, the higher the compensation is going to be. A serious injury usually means that the victim is going to have more medical bills, miss more time from work, and have more pain and suffering. However, it is important to know that the severity of the injury is not the only factor when evaluating the value of McKinney dog bite damages. Other considerations include the history of the dog, the type of breed, and the manner of the attack. If the dog has attacked others in the past and the owner did not take any steps to protect the community from his dog, then this might impact the value of the claim just as much as a serious injury would.

Lasting Effects of a Dog Bite

The lasting effects of a dog bite vary but they can last for the rest of the injured party’s life both physically and psychologically. An individual who has been attacked by a dog may have permanent scarring, which can be a daily reminder of the traumatic event. This daily reminder can lead to shame and guilt. All these factors will be considered when calculating the McKinney dog bite damages.

Comparative Negligence

Texas is a modified comparative negligence state. This means that if the injured victim was partially at fault for the accident they still may be able to recover damages. For instance, if they are found to be 20 percent at fault for the incident, then they may be able to recover 80 percent of the damages. However, if they are found to be at least 51 percent at fault, then they are barred from receiving compensation.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
