Obtain the name, address and telephone number of all witnesses. If you know of anyone who has been bitten by the same dog, get their contact information

Follow-up with a plastic surgeon to obtain an opinion on whether scar revision surgery

Testimonials

Hugh Truly Helped Make My Life Better

In a time of injury, all there seems to be is confusion, anger and pain. Thankfully, when my injury case wasn't getting better or easier, my mother and I had the good sense to ask Hugh to help. After struggling on our own for what seemed like months, our case was suddenly making quick progress on the road to getting me healed and finishing my education in college. Hugh not only managed to get us a settlement that paid for the bills, I was also able to pay off a great deal of my college debt. The entire fiasco was handled professionally, carefully and very swiftly, once Hugh stepped in to help us take on the insurance adjuster. My sincere thanks for your patience and knowledge in that confusing and difficult time of my life! Your work truly helped make my life better! Thank you!
