Dog bite cases require specialized knowledge. You already know that you cannot expect to win a medical malpractice case without knowing details about medical procedures, anatomy, hospitals, etc. You cannot expect to win an auto accident case without knowledge about cars, roads, the meaning of skid marks, and on and on. The same is true of dog bite cases. This field not only has a unique set of legal concepts, but unique ways of establishing the facts. Phillips will tell you what the dog owner, the insurance adjuster, and their attorney are going to say — and how to make their own words bite them hard. For example, when the defense asserts that your client provoked the dog, you will learn how to use the defense allegations to put liability squarely on the shoulders of the dog owner.
You can prove the true cause of an attack by using facts about the dog’s health, confinement and training. To do this, you must have accurate information about canine aggression, and know where to get the witnesses, documents and experts for your particular case. The insurance adjuster and defense attorney will know about these things. Unless you learn them, you will start out behind and fall further behind as time goes on. The information you will learn from this fast-moving seminar will enable you to recognize the winning claims, devastate the defense, avoid insurance scams that are the plague of structured settlements,

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DOG BITE INJURY LAWYER
Dog bites can happen at literally any time or any place. When they do, you need the services of an experienced dog bite lawyer who knows your rights. Whether you are bitten by a dog that belongs to someone you know or by a stray, you need to understand the potential outcomes and the process for getting compensation to cover your financial consequences. The choice in legal representation is one of the most important decisions you will make. It shouldn’t be taken lightly or an attorney chosen randomly. Instead, learn what it takes to make one attorney preferable over the rest.
When people are sick, they don’t go looking for the youngest, most inexperienced doctor to take care of them. Unfortunately, the same isn’t always true when they are choosing legal representation after they have been bitten. In many ways, navigating the legal system is a lot like performing intricate surgery. It requires an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and a lot of practice to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved
CHOOSE AN ATTORNEY WITH A SPECIALTY IN THE RIGHT AREA
There is a lot to learn when you choose law as your profession. It takes a lot of time and dedication to gain a legal education and pass the bar. All this effort is what it takes just to earn the title of attorney. It would be virtually impossible for every attorney who reached this milestone to learn everything there is to know about every possible area of the law. That’s why attorneys specialize in certain areas of law. By focusing on a single area of law, they can become experts capable of helping clients whose legal issues fall within their area of specialty.
A PROVEN RECORD OF SUCCESS
There is no other way to guarantee the effectiveness of any attorney than by their record of success. Review their opens in a new windowpast case settlements in terms of settlements reached and compensation recovered. An attorney who has accomplished an impressive portfolio of wins is more likely to give your case the attention to detail that it deserves. Cases aren’t won by ignoring what needs to be done. They are won by knowing the right action to take and taking it.
A GOOD COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIP
One area of interest that many potential clients overlook is the connection an attorney has with their community. The most qualified attorney will have strong ties to the community and will work with its residents to make a difference in the quality of their lives.
Dog bite victim guide
Identify the dog and its owner
Immediately identify the owner of the dog or the person who had custody of the dog when it attacked you. Obtain the names and addresses and request proof of rabies vaccination. If this information cannot be obtained, you may be forced to undergo a series of rabies shots, which are expensive (exceeds $3,000).
Seek medical care
Depending upon the severity of the dog bite, contact first responders (9-1-1) for immediate medical attention or have someone drive you to emergency care. Always seek professional medical treatment after being bitten or attacked by a dog. The risk of infection from a dog bite is far too great to ignore.
File a dog bite report
After you’ve been medically treated — even if the injury was minor — file a dog bite report with the proper city or county authorities. This legally documents your case and provides help to the next victim who may be bitten or attacked by the same dog. Without a paper trail, authorities cannot enforce effectively
Gather more information
After identifying the dog and its owner, find out more about the dog. Obtain the dog license information and any records pertaining to its previous history. Has the dog bitten or attacked a person or animal prior to biting you? Has the dog been legally designated “potentially dangerous” or “dangerous” by authorities?
Photograph your injuries
Take photos of your injuries, even if you need to unwrap gauze. Confer with a doctor or nurse as needed. They will tell you a safe manner in which to do so. It is also recommended that you photograph all of your wounds, including bruises, as well as all torn, bloody clothing and the location of the dog attack

Dog bites are not “minor” injuries. In addition to causing cuts and bruising, dog bites can fracture bones and cause permanent nerve damage
Fortunately, Wyoming law allows injured victims to sue the dog owner for compensation—but victims will need help bringing the best case
Check a Lawyer’s Experience with Dog Bite Cases
If you find a lawyer nearby, call him or her up and ask what experience they have with dog bite cases. This is a complex area of law, and not all attorneys understand it.
Ask What Evidence You Need to Strengthen Your Case
It is not enough to simply allege that you were bitten.
Discuss the Likeliest Outcome
The best Wyoming lawyers for dog bites do not make promises. If a lawyer tells you that you are “guaranteed” to make $100,000 for your injuries, you should run and find a new lawyer.
