Our attorneys will ensure that dog owners are held accountable for the injuries and damages caused by their dogs.

    Call us now at (208) 552-0467 to speak to one of our dog bite attorneys.

    When should I hire a dog bite attorney?

    You should hire a dog bite attorney as soon as possible. At the outset, we can speak to insurance adjusters, make sure you are getting the correct medical treatment, and handle your medical bills. We will also reach out to dog owners to obtain insurance information and negotiate a settlement with the dog owner’s insurance company.

    How much does it cost to hire a dog bite attorney?

    Hiring a dog bite attorney does not cost you anything up front. Instead, dog bite attorneys are paid a percentage of your settlement funds when the case is closed.

    How much is my dog bite claim worth?

    The value of a dog bite claim depends on several factors such as the age of the dog bite victim, whether the dog bite left scars, the location of scars, and the amount of medical bills incurred to treat injuries. In addition, a dog bite victim is entitled to recover for emotional distress caused by a dog attack.
