The Athens, TX personal injury lawyer that fights for your rights
An encounter with a vicious dog can be scary. And if you suffer a dog bite, the injuries can be serious. Personal injury attorney Jeff Weinstein of Weinstein Law holds negligent dog owners accountable. He fights the insurance companies to help victims get the financial compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Dogs have very powerful jaws that clamp down with great force. A dog bite can be disfiguring and leave scars. Many victims require plastic surgery. There can also be nerve damage that affects the use of hands or limbs. Victims can also suffer emotional and psychological effects after being attacked by a dog.
A dog bite attack can happen at someone's home, or on private or public property. But the owner of the dog is responsible for the training and control of the animal at all times. And when a dog bite leaves you injured, the dog owner can be held accountable for damages. Jeff Weinstein can guide you through the legal process every step of the way.
Aggressively investigating your case
But dog owners typically don't accept responsibility in these types of cases. They often insist their dog is well-behaved and trained. They'll say you must have done something to provoke the attack. And don't expect any help from insurance companies. They don't want to pay you. They're more interested in protecting their profits.
Our legal team investigates your attack to get the facts. We know where to look for evidence that the dog owner was negligent. Jeff carefully reviews all documentation related to your case. We identify witnesses and interview them. He is focused on building a strong case that proves your attack was the result of negligence.
Jeff also determines the total amount of damages you suffered. This includes compensation for all current medical expenses and any future medical expenses, such as plastic surgery. If your attack resulted in lost time from work, Jeff will seek compensation for lost wages. There may be other damages, such as pain and suffering.
Insurance companies don't intimidate Jeff
When the insurance companies see that Jeff has prepared a strong case and is ready to fight for you all the way, they often change their tune. They often agree to talk about a settlement. But Jeff is not looking for a quick deal that helps them save money. He is only interested in a settlement that meets your needs and will fight for the best possible outcome.
