Why You Should Hire an Attorney for Your Child's Dog Bite Attack
In simple economic terms, you will get more money for your child if you hire an attorney. Speaking to the insurance company without a lawyer will result in our getting about 10-20% of what would be offered to you if you are represented by counsel. Attorneys typically work on a contingency basis and will get only about 25-33% of what is awarded, so your child will actually obtain 66-75% with the help of a skilled attorney rather than being represented by the parents. Additionally, parents do not have the knowledge necessary to present the case properly, nor do they know what the proper amount is to ask for on behalf of their child. Our firm has over 30 years of experience and knows how to structure settlements and what the fair amount is to ask for that will be in the best interest of your child.
