One of my close friends called me recently and told me about his daughter who was bit by his own sister’s dog. It was a really sad story. They were at his sister’s house and his daughter had been playing all day with the dog. As they were leaving, his daughter ran to give the dog one last hug and it unexpectedly bit her face. Fortunately, it missed her eye, but she had to undergo several surgeries to repair her tear duct. She has over $10,000 in medical bills.

My friend doesn’t know what to do because the last thing he would ever consider doing is suing his sister, however, he didn’t need to have this fear. He simply needed to know his rights and understand the law. For example, in his situation, there was insurance that would cover all of his daughter’s medical bills. He just needed to know how to ask for that coverage. To his delight, it didn’t require any lawsuits. It just required our lawyers knowing how to guide him through the process.
