Legal Question in Personal Injury in Illinois

my wife's dog bite

My wife got bit by a dog a few months ago. She has a 3.5 inch long by .5 inch wide scar on her left calf. We were wondering how much should the insurance offer her. Or what is a reasonable amount. She is very self conscious of it and wouldn't wear shorts this summer and on our honeymoon in sept. without covering it....hope to hear from you soon

Re: my wife's dog bite

There are a lot of factors involved. How old is your wife? Is she a model? Will the scar have an effect on her ability to earn a living? Can plastic surgery remove the scar? If so, How much will it cost? Whose dog was it? Had it bitten before? What breed? Is it a breed that is known ot be viscious?
