Securing an Important Win for a Passionate Guitarist
Jeremiah is passionate about the guitar. Playing it is one of the things in his life that brings him the most joy and allows him to express himself creatively. It is no stretch at all to say that being able to play the guitar is extremely important to him and his wellbeing.
When he was attacked by a vicious dog, he suffered serious injuries to his face and one hand. The hand injury was severe enough to make it unclear if he could ever play the guitar again. He was heartbroken yet also determined to see if he could receive fair compensation for what happened, which would allow him to focus on his recuperation and rest his hand as much as possible.
Coming to the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C. in Waco, he was quickly reassured that there could be a brighter tomorrow through our representation. We got right to work researching the animal attack, liability laws, and potential sources for compensation. In many dog attacks, the dog’s owner can be held liable and provide damages through their homeowners’ insurance coverage. Such policies can be used even if a dog attack does not happen on the property in question.
We did not hesitate to build a case and bring it directly to the responding insurance company. By asserting our client’s right to compensation, we showed that we were prepared to fight them as much as needed to end the case in our client’s favor. At the threat of litigation against our intimidating legal professionals, the defendant agreed to offer the $305,000 settlement amount, which our client accepted.
