Question:

How long does it take to resolve a dog bite claim in North Augusta?

Answer:

Dog Bite Injury Settlement TimelineI recently spoke to a woman in South Carolina who was attacked by a dog, and one of her first questions was, “How long does the process take?” My response to that is, first off, the process takes at least as long as it takes for the person to get to what they call maximum medical improvement. You only get one chance, really, to settle any case against an insurance carrier. You get one bite at the apple, and you want to make sure that you have an understanding of all of your damages, so you can tell the insurance company the full story of what happened to you. If you don’t have that story yet, if you’ve not gotten to maximum medical improvement, then you’re only telling the insurance carrier a partial story.

Often, it depends on how reasonable the insurance company is going to be. Some insurance companies would rather fight the case to the end, and some are more reasonable. The important thing is, for anyone who has been the victim of a dog bite, to pick an attorney who is going to prosecute that case as quickly and as vigorously as possible. If anyone out there has been attacked by a dog, please contact our office. We’d be more than happy to talk to you.
