Should I hire a dog bite lawyer in Houston, TX?
Personal injury lawsuits always have a statute of limitations in place that make it impossible to file if you do not do so in time. This is one of many reasons you need to hire a dog bite lawyer in Houston, Texas from John K. Zaid & Associates to assist you with your case. Here are some of the most common questions and answers about dog bite cases.
Can I file a case if I was bitten on someone else’s property?
This can be tricky. If you were bitten by a dog on someone else’s property and did not have permission to be there, you cannot file a case, as you were trespassing. If you were invited there or told to go to a location and were bitten, or if you were bitten on public property, you likely can have a case.
Do I need a dog bite lawyer, or can I go to court and represent myself?
It is always important to hire a dog bite lawyer in Texas for your dog bite injury case. First, your lawyer will make sure you meet all of the filing deadlines. Second, the personal injury lawyers at John K. Zaid & Associates know what kind of arguments you should use in court to support your case. We have handled many dog bite injury cases in the past and know what kind of evidence to be prepared with. We will hire expert witnesses, if necessary, or investigate the details behind the incident to make sure we have all the important information that can make all the difference in winning your case. Finally, one of our lawyers will be able to tell you if you should accept a settlement or take your case to court. We know what you deserve and will be transparent every step of the way.
What if I was also at fault?
You should never admit to having fault in a personal injury case without consulting with a lawyer first. In fact, do not speak with anyone about your case without representation. Anything you say may be held against you, so you need to make sure to have someone who cares about you on your side to help speak on your behalf. The law can be confusing, which is why it is important to have representation that knows all about it on your team.
What damages can I file for?
You will likely be filing for many different costs associated with your injury. For example, you will likely have many bills from the accident itself, but you may also have future reconstructive surgeries planned or physical therapy to get back on your feet again. You may also have emotional trauma from the accident and need therapy. This can be expensive, so you should file to be compensated for that as well.
