Do I need a lawyer for a dog bite?
You don’t technically need a lawyer for a dog bite case, but it is a very good idea to get one. A lawyer can advise you as to the value of a case and negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If the other side won’t pay a fair sum a lawyer can sue at the courthouse. Insurance compaies are smart enough to know a non-lawyer really doesn’t have the knowledge and experience to get full value on a claim. As a result, if you are bit by a dog in Kentucky it is smart to get an experienced dog bite lawyer.
