Personal injury recovery for dog attacks covers more than circumstances that involve dog bites, it also covers instances when dogs cause injuries by menacing, scaring, tripping, or knocking down individuals.
Seek the justice that you deserve as a victim of a dog bite.
Dog owners or their landlords may be liable for damages caused by a dog attack. The owner’s or landlord’s insurance may cover costs of a dog-attack victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, future losses, and pain and suffering. In order to successfully obtain compensation for those costs, you must be able to prove that the dog owner or landlord was negligent in causing the dog attack. That means that they knew or should have known that the dog would attack.
There are some instances when a dog owner is presumed to know that their dog is dangerous, specifically when their dog has bitten a person before. Additionally, an owner is presumed negligent when they allow their animal to run “at large,” such as allowing their dog to be off-leash against local regulations and leash laws.
Due to the intricacies of dog-bite laws, it is important to carefully investigate, collect sufficient evidence, and understand the legal arguments and defenses to successfully pursue a claim. It is also important to understand what expenses you may recover so that you do not forgo something you are owed.
