It’s hard to give an estimate for averages in lawsuit settlement amounts for dog bite or other personal injury cases in New Orleans.
Each case is determined based on its own unique set of facts, so your case may or may not be similar.
In general, people who experience dog bites, or when a child experiences a dog bite, are entitled to damages that cover a variety of the costs incurred by the individual or family.
For instance, medical bills associated with the dog bite can be reimbursed, including future medical costs that may be incurred after the suit is settled or decided.
No two cases will include the same medical costs, which may be anything from an ER visit with stitches, to extensive cosmetic surgeries over a period of months or years to hide disfiguring injuries.
There are so many variables that it’s impossible to guess an average amount you may be awarded.
Other elements that may be awarded include lost wages, money for pain and suffering, and even punitive damages in some cases.
