What many people don’t understand is that injuries that result from a dog bite are covered under that dog owner’s homeowners insurance. Therefore, if you are the victim of a dog attack, it is imperative that you choose an attorney with extensive knowledge and experience dealing with insurance companies.

Prior to founding his own law firm, Roger Tomalas worked within the insurance industry for years, serving as an underwriter, broker and attorney. During that time, he became increasingly disenchanted with the insurance companies, which only seemed interested in reducing the amount of money awarded to injury victims.

Preferred to Represent Victims

Fed up with working on the corporate side of the insurance equation, Roger Tomalas established The Tomalas Law Firm to focus solely on the rights of the injured and leverage his knowledge of the inner workings of the insurance industry to maximize settlements for injury victims.
