Recently d’Oliveira & Associates attorney, Cara Gallucci, obtained a $125,000 settlement from Arbella Insurance for a Taunton client, who was injured by a dog. Our client was visiting a relative, when the relative’s dog bit our client, which has left her with a permanent scar.
Attorney Cara Gallucci said, “I am so grateful to have been able to help this young lady secure a good settlement of her claim. She had a wonderful resolution with surgery and is as lovely as before. We were able to help her focus on recovery, while dealing with the bills and insurance company, and also able to secure monies for her to put toward any future medical treatment she may decide to pursue.”
In Massachusetts, either the dog owners themselves or their insurance companies must compensate the injured party if their dog bites someone. To ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible, you should follow these steps to best preserve your case:
- Seek medical attention
- Gather as much information about who owns the dog, including name, address and contact information
- Get witness statements and their contact information
- Document everything that happened leading up to the bite
- Take pictures of your injury
