Who do I contact if I experience or witness a dog bite?
Your local police department or animal control office.

If a loved one or I is the victim of a dog bite, what should I do?
Be sure to rush immediately to the emergency room. Dog bites can be very serious and painful.

If I’m bitten by a dog should I contact the owner of the dog?
If it is possible to do so, contact the dog owner and collect all of their information, including any applicable insurance information as well as the animals’ vaccination records.

Following a dog bite, should I document the injuries?
Yes. Especially if your intent is to file a lawsuit to recover damages. Photographing the injuries and collecting witness statements will help you obtain a personal injury judgment in your favor.

I was attacked by a dog guarding a local business. I was not trespassing or committing a crime. May I file a lawsuit against the company that owns the dog?
Yes. Personal injury law says you may file a lawsuit for injuries caused by a dog bite. You may seek reparations for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any other out of pocket costs that were the result of the attack.

In order to file a dog bite lawsuit against the owner of the dog, does the dog owner need to have renters or property insurance?
Most dog bite lawsuits are against the insurance company of the dog owner. However, if the dog owner is uninsured, a lawsuit may be filed against the dog owner directly.

I was bitten by a dog and I want to file a lawsuit. Which kind of attorney should I contact?
A personal injury attorney.

I was bitten by a dog and need to file a lawsuit but I do not have the money to pay an attorney. What are my options?
Personal injury attorneys most often work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they only get paid after you win or settle your case. Generally, you will not have to pay them out of pocket.

Can I obtain legal financing on a dog bite lawsuit?
It depends. Funds4Claims offers legal financing on dog bite lawsuits. Many of our competitors do not.

What kinds of legal financing may I apply for?
Funds4Claims provides plaintiffs in dog and animal bite lawsuits with pre and post settlement funding as well as structured settlement and annuity buyouts.

How long do I have to repay my lawsuit loan if I lose my case?
Funds4Claims provides lawsuit loans on a non-recourse basis. This means that you are not obligated to repay the money we lend you if you lose your case.

How much money may I seek from legal financing?
It depends on the severity of your injuries and the strength of your case, but, generally we offer legal financing of anywhere from $1,000 to $250,000. To find out specifically, please contact us at 855.386.3744 or fill out the legal financing application.

Apply for Animal Attack Settlement Funding

Being the victim of a dog or animal attack can leave lifelong scars—physically, emotionally and mentally. If you or a loved one was injured in an animal attack, you may never be the same. It is even possible you will never return to work or, that if you do, that you will not be able to work at the same level you once did. Filing a personal injury lawsuit is one way to help mitigate the financial damage resulting from an animal attack.

Lawsuits are long and complicated legal proceedings. Sometimes they are made longer intentionally by defense attorneys and insurance companies, whom seek to prolong the lawsuits in an effort to pressure the plaintiff into settling for a dollar amount that is far less than what they deserve. Aware of this tactic, Funds4claims has made the application process to obtain legal financing extremely simple. To apply, you can either call us at 855.386.3744 or fill out our lawsuit funding application today and have your approval by tomorrow. There is no obligation and it is free to apply. You should not have to wait for money that is yours and Funds4claims provides you with the financial security you need to fight greedy insurance companies and high powered defense attorneys.
