We have the answers. We can help you.
A dog attack on you or your loved one means you need the assistance of Colorado trial lawyer David M. Larson to protect your rights and those of your loved ones.
How We Handle Your Case
Mr. Larson will personally handle your case. Our firm takes a limited number of cases so Mr. Larson can devote the necessary time and resources to your case.
When you hire our office:
- we will immediately begin gathering facts and evidence;
- we will interview witnesses;
- we will request and review police reports regarding the dog bite / attack;
- we will request and review your medical records;
- we will be in contact with the responsible party and their insurance carrier(s.)
If we are unable to reach a favorable resolution to your dog bite claim prior to the filing of lawsuit we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and vigorously litigate your dog bite claim on your behalf – up to and including through trial and/or appeal if necessary.
Settling Dog Bites Cases
Dog Bite cases can settle at various different stages – early on and before a lawsuit is filed, after a lawsuit is filed, right before or during a jury trial or even during or after an appeal after a jury trial. There are many reasons a case may settle or not settle at any point in the process sometimes with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes Defendants’ and/or their insurance companies fight cases to trial even when liability and/or damages are clear. It could be that the Defendants and/or their insurance companies did not evaluate the case properly or are simply acting unreasonably. Some insurance companies settle claims more quickly than others for various reasons.
How We Get Paid
Our law firm represents dog bite victims on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee agreement means that you will not pay any attorney's fees to our firm unless our firm gets a settlement, an award, or a judgment for you. We only get paid when our client gets a settlement, an award, or a judgment.
A contingency fee agreement means:
- You will not have to pay any money up-front to our firm.
- You will not have to pay any legal fees to our firm if there is no settlement, award, or a judgment.
- You don't have to hesitate to pursue your legal remedies for your dog bite injuries.
- We will invest our time, resources and money to receive full value for your dog bite case.
- We will resolve the matter as quickly as possible for full value with the least possible expense.
