Dog Bite Law
The laws on dog bites are clear. An owner is liable even if it is the first time such a dog bite occurred, or the owner tried everything within their power to prevent or stop the dog bite. The owner of a dog is responsible for restraining and controlling their animal in public areas as well as on private property to prevent dog bites. When dealing with situations involving private property you must be there with a legal reason in order to maintain your rights as a dog bite victim.
Dog bite losses result in over $1 billion dollars annually, for this reason you or your family need skilled representation to protect your interests.
Compensation in dog bite cases covers a wide range of areas:
- Medical expenses, including hospital, emergency care, continued medical treatment
- Plastic or reconstructive surgery if necessary
- Scar reduction procedure
- Psychological care for trauma or distress as a result of dog bites or associated medical issues
- Lost wages
- Property damages such as clothing
- Pain and suffering as a result of the dog bite
It is not uncommon to have your own dog attacked at the time of the incident. The medical attention necessary for your beloved companion is also the responsibility of the owner whose canine caused the dog bites. In the sad event your dog dies as a result of the dog bites, you are entitled to monetary compensation for your loss.
In this event it is essential to have a compassionate professional that will understand your suffering while providing you with the best possible legal representation for your dog bite case.
