Dog Bite Injuries
Personal injuries are occurrences that are brought about by another person or organization’s negligence. This includes animal bites, because the pet’s owner can be held liable for their pet’s actions.
Dogs are supposed to be taken to a veterinarian and given shots regularly. Therefore, if you sustained a dog bite that resulted in a disease transmittal, the owner is responsible for the disease transmission.
Additionally, owners are to restrain their animals and keep them at a safe distance from other people and animals. Dogs that show aggression may be unsuitable for existence in public.
A skilled dog bite lawyer can present your case in court and prove that the bite was caused by pet owner negligence. Our personal injury attorneys have helped many clients get the compensation that they deserve from dog bites and animal attacks.

Mistakes to Avoid After a Dog Bite or Animal Attack
- Rushing into a Settlement: Recovery periods for animal attacks can be lengthy and oftentimes the severity of the injury isn’t clear initially. Don’t agree to a settlement until there is a clear idea of the recovery period and extent of your injuries to ensure your claim is sufficient to cover all those expenses.
- Providing a Statement to the Opposing Insurance Company: You are not required to give a statement to the dog owner’s insurance company. The insurance company will use absolutely any inconsistencies in your story to try and minimize your claim.
- Releasing Medical Records to the Opposing Insurance Company: You are not required to release your confidential medical records to the dog owner’s insurance company. They want to get your records to find anything they can to minimize your claim. Don’t let them.
- Lying or Providing Misleading Information to Your Doctor or Authorities: Not only will the insurance company look for inconsistencies from your statements, they will also look at information you provide to doctors and authorities. As the victim, your credibility is important. Telling the truth consistently will go a long way in maintaining a strong case.
