Most dog owners are caring, responsible people who love their animals and ensure their pets’ safety as well as the safety of others who are around their pets. Unfortunately, not all dog owners take this responsibility seriously, which may result in dangerous dog attacks.
Nashville dog bites can often result in life-altering injuries, such as broken bones, serious infections, disfigurement, and even amputation. Severe dog bite injuries may require reconstructive surgery, cause permanent and painful scarring, or result in lifelong emotional trauma.
After you or a loved one is attacked by a dog, you may be due to compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, physical therapy, time lost from work, and future earnings. But the insurance company may be unfairly pressuring you to settle for an amount that doesn’t begin to cover all of these costs. And as a former insurance claims adjuster, John Griffith is here to protect your rights and help make sure the insurance company gives you the compensation you and your family deserve.
