How much will my dog bite case be worth?
A natural question in any personal injury claim, including a dog bite claim in Idaho, centers on the value of the claim. What sort of compensation can be expected? What is the settlement going to be, or what would a jury verdict be? The answer to that is it varies based on what the scope of the damages are. How bad did the dog injure you? Is it a simple puncture wound, or is it an attack on the face of a 14-year-old girl that leaves lifelong scarring? Is it a bite on the calf? What are the damages? Those damages will be part of the equation.
There are other parts of the equation involved in the value of a claim. How did it impact you? The same physical injury might cause different emotional injuries or different reactive injuries for different people. Somebody who has just recovered from a surgery, who’s been bedridden, and all of a sudden gets attacked and is bedridden again after a dog attack might have a greater claim for emotional damages than somebody whose dog attack doesn’t really put them down because they start from a position of greater strength than the other person.
All these things are factors that are part of assessing what the value of the case is. There are the issues that are simple, including the economic losses and medical expenses. It’s the non-economic losses— the parts related to the joy of life and the pleasure in living— that are more complex parts of the damages claim that you need to have a good Idaho trial attorney help you evaluate in any specific situation. The way to get that done is to start the process by giving us a call so we can discuss your Idaho dog bite case and see if we can help you move forward with it.
