Dog Bites

Dog Bite Attorney

Have You Been Attacked by a Vicious Animal?

Dog bites are, unfortunately, a common occurrence and can cause serious personal injury. Even if you are careful around unfamiliar animals around the neighborhood or in someone’s home, an incident can still occur. A scent, a movement, or even a sound can cause an animal to return to their wild instincts. When this happens, you may need to retain the services of a dog bite lawyer.

What many people don’t realize is that the dog owner is liable for the injuries caused by their uncontrolled pet. It is common practice to purchase homeowner’s insurance policies that cover dog bites, so if you, your child, or a loved one has been bitten by a dog or other domestic animal, please let us help you understand your legal options. In many cases, we can help recover compensation for the medical bills and the pain and suffering associated with a dog bite. This all starts by helping you file a personal injury claim.

Understanding Dog Bite Risks and Prevention

To help educate the public about dog bites, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the America Society of Plastic Surgeons spend time each year handing out brochures and holding seminars. Many of their material is surrounded around preventing dog bites, what owners can do to prevent their dogs from biting someone, and how to properly treat dog bites.

One of the most overlooked aspects of a dog bite in today’s society is the threat of rabies. It is strongly urged that if you or a loved one is bitten, that you request proof of a rabies vaccination from the dog’s owner. Other pieces of information you should collect are the dog owner’s name and contact information, as well as the dog’s veterinarian so that its vaccination records can be confirmed.

Protecting Children from Dog Bite Injuries

It is also important to remember that the most vulnerable victim to a dog bite is a child. And with more and more households containing dogs, the chances of a dog bite have increased. With the potential to come across dogs in parks, at friends’ houses, and a variety of other places, it is an important time to think about the safety and well being of your child.

We love dogs just as much as anyone. Please remember that they are still an animal and despite rigorous training and discipline, when cornered or threatened, dogs will revert to their instincts. Often times the dog mistakes a child for a threat and lashes out at them. Educate your kids about dogs and the potential danger they possess. We encourage you to love your dogs, but also respect them and what they are capable of.

Immediate Steps to Take After a Dog Bite Incident

  • Seek medical attention, and keep the doctor’s notes
  • Take pictures of the injury as soon as possible as evidence
  • Find the owner of the animal and tell them what happened to prevent future incidents
  • If you can’t find the owner, contact local authorities for help
  • Contact an attorney to discuss legal recourse

In many cases, victims of dog bites are hesitant to approach the dog’s owner about their injuries, especially when the owner is a family member, close friend, or neighbor. However, it is essential to obtain basic information about the dog if you are considering filing a personal injury claim.

Key Information to Gather After a Dog Bite:

  • The dog’s vaccination history
  • Whether the dog has ever been quarantined for aggressive behavior
  • The dog’s bite history

While large dog breeds are most commonly associated with attacks, even small dogs can be vicious at times. A small, enraged dog can be relentless and too fast for you to get away from, and you could slip and fall while running. No matter the size or breed of a dog, you should take the proper steps after an attack to secure your dog bite claim in front of a court.

The Importance of Legal Representation After a Dog Bite

There are many reasons why it is crucial to contact an experienced lawyer following a dog bite. Reasons include:

  • A skilled lawyer can ease the burden of legal worries and can work diligently to help you recover compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional damages.
  • An attorney can act as a third-party, which can help preserve the relationship you may have with the dog’s owner.
