Don’t Wait to Seek Legal Counsel After an Animal Attack
In a dog bite case, insurance and liability issues may be challenging to untangle. Access to the dog and witnesses to the attack can be essential. It is very important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an injury, to ensure others’ safety, protect evidence and enforce your own legal rights.
Attorney Rick Hunter has over a quarter century of experience in civil litigation, including a wealth of insight into insurance carriers’ methods and approaches to personal injury and liability cases. Rick knows the law, and he will patiently and empathetically explain how he views your case and chances of financial recovery.
The building of your case begins with an examination of the circumstances. North Carolina has strong leash laws, and your case may be much stronger if statutes were clearly violated, or if you or your loved one was attacked by a dog “with a past.” However, dog breeds other than pit bulls and Dobermans attack and injure people, and we will look at every aspect of your possible case for compensation.
