Pleading the Dog Bite Lawsuit

When the insurance company for the dog owner is treating you unfairly, you have no choice but to file the lawsuit. To immediately impress on them that you are going to win and they are going to lose, you absolutely must plead your case correctly. It makes no sense to file it if you are going to blow it at the very start. 

Begin the process by reviewing the "causes of action" that you can possibly plead. Read Causes of Action in a Dog Bite Case by Attorney Phillips, included in Dog Bite Lawsuit Forms

If your case will be filed in any US state other than California, use the "Complaint" (i.e., the initial pleading) in Dog Bite Lawsuit Forms. If you will file it in California, use the Undemurrable Dog Bite Complaint with Points and Authorities for California. Each of these has multiple causes of action that are worded unambiguously and powerfully.
