A trip to the emergency room when a child is bitten by a dog can wreak financial havoc on a family, especially they are underinsured or uninsured.
Louisiana continues to struggle to find a way to provide affordable health insurance to many, which means that unplanned crises can be catastrophic.
The good news is that you have a right to compensation in New Orleans when your child is bitten by a neighbor’s dog.
Typically, the neighbor’s homeowner’s insurance company will be responsible for fairly compensating you for medical bills, wages that you or your spouse lost while dealing with the incident, and even making sure you’re protected from future medical expenses related to the injuries, including cosmetic surgery.
An experienced New Orleans dog bite attorney works for you, and will see to it that your family recovers as much as possible so your child can heal and your family can move on.
