My son was bitten by a dog ten years ago and I would now like to settle the claim with the dog owners homeowners insurance company. The dog bit my son in the mouth and took out a piece of his uppper lip. He had two surgeries to repair the damage. We recently visited a plastic surgeon at Shriners Hospital who told us the lip was improved as much as it could be, and any further surgery could make the scarring worse. How do I put a value on the injury so I can negotiate a settlement with the insurance company? Can I do this myself or would it be better to have an attorney involved?
