Recently on this blog we’ve talked about events where people have been attacked by aggressive dogs. Sadly, those who find themselves in these situations can wind up facing years, if not decades, of hardship on account of the harm caused to them. They may be left physically disabled, disfigured, and emotionally scarred. The medical care they require can be quite expensive, and they may have to take time off work in order to recoup, which may mean lost wages.

This outcome is extremely unfair. As a result, victims can find themselves stressed and overwhelmed, sometimes fearful for what the future holds for them and their loved ones. As scary as this may be, these individuals don’t have to sit back and take what comes to them. Instead, they can take certain legal steps to ensure that their voice is heard, their legal rights are protected, and they stand a chance at recovering compensation.

The first step in this process is usually finding a competent attorney to work with you and guide you through the personal injury lawsuit process. This can be a challenging choice with so many firms to choose from, which is why you should take the time needed to properly vet those firms that you are considering.

There are a number of characteristics you should look for when considering legal representation, including negotiation and litigation skills, the ability to competently research and persuasively write, and compassion and empathy for those who are facing a difficult time in their lives. The legal team at Gary Phillips Accident Law possesses these characteristics, and we stand ready to help those who have been unfairly harmed by aggressive animals.
