    Dog Bite Pre-Settlement Loans

    It’s hard to get through an average day without seeing or having a personal interaction with at least one dog outside of your home. Dogs are popular pets with 69 million households providing homes to at least one dog with the current canine population estimated at 88 million. Although most encounters between people and dogs end without incident, 4.5 million people sustain injuries each year from dog bites.

    Dog attacks can leave you with serious and, in some instances, permanent injuries requiring extensive medical treatment that may include costly scar revision surgery. Although you may be entitled to recover compensation from the owner of the dog, the slow pace of the legal process means that it could be months or even years before your claim is settled or goes to trial and results in a favorable verdict.

    If you are struggling to find money to pay your bills while recovering from your injuries, a dog bite pre-settlement loan may be the solution. It gives you a cash advance for a portion of the anticipated value of the settlement or judgment. When you apply to, you could have the money within 24 hours from approval of your application at rates as low as 2.5% simple interest per month.

    How much funding can I get on my dog-bite claim?

    When you apply for pre-settlement funding, the funding company obtains information about your dog bite claim from the lawyer who represents you. It evaluates the strength of the claim and likelihood of it resulting in a settlement or judgment in your favor by looking at the evidence available to prove liability of the owner of the dog and other parties, such as the owner of property where the attack occurred.

    The funding company also looks at the injuries that you sustained in the attack, their severity, and whether there will be any ongoing disability that may impair your ability to work in the future. The amount of the cash advance is a portion of the value a company puts on the settlement or judgment. For example, many funding companies limit their cash advance to only 15% of the value of your claim, but offers up to 50% of the anticipated value.

    What are the approval criteria for dog-bite lawsuit loans?

    Most of the information a lawsuit funding company needs to evaluate your application for a cash advance against the anticipated settlement or judgment in a dog bite lawsuit will be obtained through the attorney representing you in the case. Included among the criteria used to make a decision whether to approve your dog bite case for legal funding are the following:

    • Existence of evidence proving liability: A police report made immediately after the attack, statements from people who witnessed it, and surveillance videos are some of the forms of evidence that prove that an attack took place.
    • Damages: Medical records and statements from treating physicians help to prove the extent and severity of the injuries caused by the attack. Employment and school records establish the amount of time lost from work or school as a result of the injuries.
    • Availability of liability insurance: A funding company recovers its cash advance and interest it earns from settlement of the claim and not from payments made by the plaintiff or from assets the plaintiff owns and pledges as collateral. The fact that the dog owner and other parties, such as the owner of the building where the dog was kept, have liability insurance providing coverage to pay the claim reduces the funding company’s risk of not recovering the money owed to it.

    Other criteria that must be met to qualify for a lawsuit loan include the following:

    • You must have a lawyer representing you in the dog bite lawsuit.
    • A lawsuit must be pending against the dog’s owner, property owner, and other parties responsible for the attack.
    • The settlement company must approve the claim for funding based on its strength and value.

    Most of the information and documentation required to conduct an evaluation of the lawsuit to determine eligibility for funding obtained from the attorney representing you. 

    Upon approval of the dog bite claim for funding, the settlement company provides you and your lawyer with a written agreement containing the terms of the lawsuit loan. Once you and your lawyer sign it, the cash advance is processed within 24 hours.

    Benefits of dog-bite lawsuit funding

    The obvious benefit of lawsuit funding when you have a lawsuit pending for injuries caused when a dog attacked you is quick access to money to pay medical bills and other expenses while awaiting a settlement. A benefit that may not be as obvious has to do with a strategy used by insurance companies to take advantage of a dog-bite victim’s financial struggles by delaying settlement negotiations. The goal is to force the plaintiff to settle quickly for less than the true value of the claim.

    Lawsuit funding gives you the money you need to relieve financial pressure and give your lawyer the time needed to obtain a fair settlement or take the case to trial to get the money compensation that you deserve.

    Other benefits of lawsuit funding that you get by applying at include:

    • Fast application and underwriting process to get you a quick approval.
    • Funding of the cash advance in as little as 24 hours after you and your lawyer sign the funding agreement.
    • Rates as low as 2.5% simple interest per month and funding for up to 50% of the anticipated value of the settlement.
    • No credit check or employment verification required. Non-recourse funding means that you cannot be held personally liable for repayment in the unlikely event that the claim does not end in a settlement or verdict in your favor.

    How much is my dog-bite claim worth?

    • How much you may receive for injuries suffered when bitten by a dog depend on several factors, including:
    • The type and severity of the injuries inflicted by the dog. Deep lacerations that require sutures may cause scarring. Scarring on areas of the body normally covered by clothing would not add as much to the value of a claim as scars on the face, arms or legs.
    • Injuries that are disabling and impair the future ability of a dog bite victim from working and earning a living increase the value of a claim.
    • Disabling injuries with long-term effects add more to the value of your case than disabling injuries that are expected to heal over time.

    An important factor to consider in determining the value of your dog bite claim is the degree of fault that you bear in causing the attack. Expect the settlement offer to be less if you teased or approached the dog before the attack.

    Dog-bite lawsuit liability

    Holding a dog owner or property owner liable in a dog bite case depends on the law of the state where the attack occurs. Some states have strict liability laws making the owner liable when their dog bites another person. Other states hold owners responsible only when it is proven that they were aware of their dog’s aggressive tendencies. Proving that the dog bit someone before is one way to prove awareness by the owner.

    Common injuries from dog bites

    A puncture wound is a common minor injury resulting from a dog bite, but more severe injuries frequently occur depending on the size and strength of the dog relative to the size of the victim. Common injuries in addition to puncture wounds include:

    • Broken bones.
    • Lacerations, scratches and abrasions.
    • Injuries to the eyes, face and head.
    • Traumatic brain injury.
    • Nerve damage.

    Emotional harm, including post-traumatic stress disorder, are common in victims of dog bites.

    Homeowners insurance and dog-bite claims

    Most homeowner and renter insurance policies provide liability coverage to protect the owner of a dog for claims made by victims bitten by the animal. Some insurance companies refuse to provide coverage for homes with certain breeds of dogs, such as German shepherds and pit bulls.

    An insurance company provides a lawyer to defend the homeowner or renter and pays any settlement or verdict up to the policy’s coverage limits. The existence of insurance coverage gives a dog bite victim security knowing there is a source of funds to pay compensation.
