the owner of the dog lives in P.A. He was visiting his parents, owner of the house, in NJ. while my husband was making the plumbing repair. Does that change anything?
I really don't know yet. The dog owner was very cooperative and claims he will cover costs. I am assuming from Homeowners policy. Can I have my Health care coverage cover medical and can I file a claim, or do I have to sue the insurance company, for loss of wages and pain and suffering and mental anguish?
what kind of $$$ amt settlement could you see this case being from your professional opinion. Do we have a strong case?
how do put a $$ amount on mental anguish or pain and suffering?
how can I find out, without asking the dog owner, how much they are covered with their homeowners policy? I don't want to sue him personally and destroy his life. I do, however, want to be compensated fully for the hell that we have been going through. 4 days in hospital 3 weeks out of work, loss of potential customers, loss of regular customers and the wound is still not closed and still bleeding He is going crazy. He has to lay on his side all day to take the pressure off the wound.
