Average Dog Bite Settlement Amounts

Average Dog Bite Settlement Amounts

Nearly everyone involved in ongoing Massachusetts personal injury cases want to know what their case is worth. Our clients who have the misfortune of being bit or attacked by a dog want to know what the dog owner’s insurance company will be offering to settle their case.
Dog bite settlement amounts depend on a variety of factors. No two cases are alike so each case value must be determined on a case by case basis.

Settlement amounts depend on a variety of factors, including:

Keep in mind not every dog owner has insurance.  If there is neither homeowners or renters insurance in place, you will have to look to the dog owner to personally pay you a settlement.  If the dog owner does not have insurance, or money to pay, settling a case can prove to be very difficult.
