Were You Injured By A Dog Bite? We Are Here To Help.
Millions of people are bitten by dogs each year, many are children. Massachusetts law holds dog owners and keepers liable when their dog bites someone, unless a victim provoked the dog or was committing a wrongful act.
Since 1998, the law firm of Connell & Foresta has been helping victims of dog bites and other premises liability claims pursue appropriate compensation. We practice personal injury exclusively, and we know the laws inside and out. Our lead attorney has more than 20 years of experience representing injured children, adults and their families in all types of personal injury claims. From our North Andover office, we represent clients throughout the surrounding area of Massachusetts.
Compensation For Dog Bite Injuries
Pit bull dog bites and those from other breeds can cause broken bones, arm or ankle injuries, cranial injuries and more. For the victim of a dog bite, expenses can add up fast. The experienced dog bite lawyer at Connell & Foresta helps clients recover compensation for the cost of medical treatment and other expenses, including:
- Medical expenses
- Emergency room visits
- Prescription drug costs
- Physical therapy
- Reconstructive surgery
- Emotional trauma
- Psychiatric therapy
- Lost wages
- Insurance costs
It is never simple to obtain full compensation for the injuries and losses suffered from dog bites or other animal attacks. Our lawyer knows how to negotiate with the insurance company or bring your case to trial if needed. At Connell & Foresta, we are committed to getting you the maximum compensation award available.
Hiring Connell & Foresta
If you are a victim of a dog bite, insurance companies routinely offer as little as 10% of the amount you’d receive if you hire a lawyer. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means if we don’t recover compensation, you pay no legal fees. Even after legal fees are paid, you can recover more appropriate compensation with a lawyer by your side than facing an insurance company alone.
Most personal injury cases settle without going to trial. Our experienced lawyer understands the nuances of personal injury law, and our goal is to present your dog bite case to the insurance company so that your claim is resolved without going to court.
