There’s nothing cuter than a dog gnawing on a bone—unless the bone happens to be attached to you or a member of your family. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your physical and psychological injuries, the cost of your medical care, lost time at work, and, in some cases punitive damages. That’s why it is important for you to contact attorneys with vast experience in this area of the law—attorneys like the members of the legal team at Betras, Kopp, and Markota.
At BK&M we pay special attention to dog bite cases because we know they can cause pain and suffering for many years. A person, especially a child, bitten on the face or other exposed body part may require many, complicated plastic surgeries that take years to heal and still may not be able to completely repair the disfigurement that can occur when a dog tears away at flesh and muscle. That’s why we fight to win settlements, either via negotiations or in court, which will provide the funds needed for our clients to fully recover from their injuries.
Although most nursing homes and assisted living facilities are accredited and provide seniors with high-quality care and activities that enable them to enjoy fulfilling lives, abuse and neglect do occur. As the number of seniors living in these facilities has increased so has the number of victims.If you believe a loved one is being hurt or exploited, contact the experienced legal team at Betras, Kopp & Markota today!
Few events are as life-altering as divorce. If your marriage is ending you may be experiencing intense emotional pain and psychological trauma, deteriorating physical health, and financial hardship. That means you will be making critical decisions that will affect you, your soon-to-be ex-spouse, your children, and other family members for years to come–all at a time when your judgment may be clouded by the many things that are happening to and around you.
Add to these personal challenges and extremely high stakes the fact that divorce cases are among the most complicated in our legal system and it is easy to understand why many experts recommend contacting a lawyer like Mark DeVicchio and the BK&M domestic relations team as soon as you believe your marriage is in trouble.
Attorney Brian Kopp was born with a passion for sports. In fact, it’s in his DNA. His father, the legendary John Kopp, coached football at Cardinal Mooney, Wilson, Chaney and Fitch. To this day “Coach” Kopp’s former players as well as the coaches he mentored say he made them winners on the field and in life.
That is why it’s no surprise that Brian, a standout quarterback at Boardman High School and Bethany College, gravitated toward sports law after establishing himself as one of the region’s most effective litigators.
