Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

Do I need to consult a lawyer after a dog bite, even if I don’t think I’m going to start a claim?

You definitely should talk to a Kansas City dog bite lawyer even if you don’t think you want to try to get compensation for your injuries. The experienced lawyer can assist with finding out the dog’s owners and if it has a prior history of attacks. They may need to review veterinary records on the animal in question. Even if you don’t want to make a claim, that step is important to make sure you are safe. You need to make sure the dog was up to date on the rabies vaccination. Just because you hire an attorney doesn’t mean that you have to sue.

A lawyer can assist you in finding medical practitioners to evaluate you for treatment. They can guide you to plastic surgeons for a consult to see if you might be a candidate for surgery. The doctors can determine what extent your injuries are and the prognosis. The lawyer may be able to help you decide if you should take legal action or not, and what your potential case worth would be. The lawyer is there to help guide you and to help you understand what options you have.
