What to Do After a Dog Bite
If you have been bitten, you need to go to a doctor right away. Untreated bites can lead to severe infection. You also need to know if the dog was diseased. Next step, contact a personal injury lawyer who is skilled with dog bite cases. You may be able to recoup damages from the owner’s neglect. Our firm has over seventeen years in practice of defending these types of cases. We can review the merits of your case to let you know if you have a legal claim.
Our personal injury lawyer can walk you through every aspect of your dog bite claim. In our state, there is no need to prove fault, just ownership of the dog. Most homeowners’ insurance plans cover these types of claims. We will make sure insurers fairly compensate you for your medical bills, future care and bills, and any pain you have endured as a result of a dog bite. Our personal injury lawyer will help you with the proper way to log your claim. This may include pictures, statements from anyone who observed the bite, a police report, and doctors’ notes.
Dog owners are supposed to show caution when letting their pets meet others, or bring them out in the public. Whether you are visitor, a guest, in the street, or on your own land, you likely have a valid claim. All that we will need to prove is that the attack was unprovoked. Dog owners are in charge if the dog bites, or otherwise injures a person, when the dog was not provoked, and the victim had a lawful right to be where they were.
