Get Compensation for a Dog Bite Injury with a Rafael Shpelfogel Law Offices
The American Humane Society estimates that nearly 5 million dog bite injuries occur every year. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of dog bite victims receive full and fair compensation for their injuries. There are many reasons for this. First, many people who suffer a dog bite injury don’t report it because they don’t realize they could get compensation. Second, a dog bite lawsuit is tough to win without an experienced dog bite attorney on your side.
And third, insurance adjusters offer dog bite victims much less compensation when they don’t have dog bite attorneys. Retaining an attorney is not about being greedy or trying to intentionally hurt dog owners. It’s about getting the help you need to get fair compensation for your dog bite injury so that you don’t have to worry about medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and other expenses you incur as a result of a dog bite.
If you’re worried about costs, don’t be. We at Rafael Shpelfogel Law Offices work on a contingency basis, which means that you get paid, or you don’t pay at all!

Get Started Earlier Rather Than Later
A dog bite lawsuit requires specialized knowledge and skills, but timing is also critical for a successful outcome. It’s always better to retain a dog bite lawyer as soon as possible. This will give your attorney enough time to evaluate the accident, gather evidence and work with the dog owners’ insurance so that you can get an estimate of the compensation you’ll receive sooner rather than later. If you wait too long to retain an attorney, the details may become unclear or the evidence may no longer be available, and your case may be weakened as a result.
It takes just a few minutes to find out if you have a case. Contact us now for your free consultation.
