Many people have dogs as pets. It’s common to see people taking their dogs for walks down the street or at a park. However, some dogs aren’t as friendly. If they aren’t socialized correctly, they could attack and bite someone, and cause devastating injuries. If you’ve been injured by a dog or other animal and are in the process of filing an injury lawsuit, you may find yourself in a situation where you’re unable to pay back all of your medical bills and expenses while you wait for the case to settle. If this situation sounds familiar, you may be able to get the financial relief you need with dog bite lawsuit funding from Preferred Capital Funding.
You may feel wary of applying for funding, but there’s inherently no risk to you. In most states, you do not have to pay back the funding if you do not win your case. If you do win your case, you pay us back in one lump sum in most cases. You’ll also know the exact amount you’ll pay back so there aren’t any surprises when it’s time to do so. We add the interest and additional fees beforehand, so you have the right number in your head.
Dog Bite Injuries Can Be Costly
Dog bite injury victims can suffer from many kinds of injuries. Dogs have sharp teeth and powerful jaws that can cause bone fractures. Bites can cause serious lacerations and scarring that lasts for the rest of the victim’s life. Someone could have a part of their body permanently disfigured, which has both physical and mental implications. If a limb is disfigured, they may not be able to continue to do their job. There’s also an emotional toll, which could be from loss of enjoyment of life. If their face is permanently disfigured, they may struggle with how their life has changed since the encounter with the dog. A dog can also spread diseases that are painful and life-threatening to people, which include:
- Capnocytophaga bacteria
All these injuries will most likely require professional medical care. Some may need hospitalization and/or corrective surgeries to fix. These costs are not inexpensive. An attack from a dog can also have lasting mental effects. The victim may develop a fear of dogs, avoid the place where the attack took place, be scared to go somewhere that could possibly have dogs, and have issues with the constantly reliving the event.
There’s also the awkwardness of the claim to deal with as well. You may know the dog owner, which makes the situation difficult to deal with. However, it’s important to remember they weren’t in control of their dog when it harmed you. You need and deserve compensation for your injuries. But if the claim is taking longer than you’d thought and all these things are on your shoulders, you can suffer from a considerable amount of stress.
While there’s a heavy emotional toll with a dog bite case, you can alleviate some of the financial pressure with lawsuit funding. With this out of your mind, you won’t have to worry about bills and can let the legal process go at the pace it’s supposed to go.
