When someone has been seriously injured from a dog bite in the state of Utah, there are some common mistakes that we often see made. Mistake number one is people will not seek out the medical care that they need right away. If you have been injured, it’s important that you get into a doctor that can help you begin to heal from the dog bite. Mistake number two is that people will not follow the recommendations of their doctor. If a doctor has instructed you to do something, it’s important that you follow that doctor’s instructions.
Mistake number three is that people will not hire an attorney to help them with their dog bite case. An attorney can step in early on in the process and help organize your case, and help you avoid some of the common mistakes and pitfalls that many people fall into. Mistake number four is when someone is selecting an attorney, it’s important that they hire a trial attorney. An attorney that is willing to take a case to court and to a jury verdict is treated differently by insurance companies than an attorney that is unwilling to take a case to court and to a jury verdict.
