Dog Bites

Dog Bites 2017-09-03T20:10:18+00:00

Every year, millions of Americans are bitten by dogs.  Dog bite claims fall under the umbrella of personal injury law, where the injured party has the legal right to seek compensation for injuries caused by another party’s actions or negligence.

If you are involved in a dog bite incident, it is important to first determine whether medical treatment is necessary. Hundreds of thousands of dog bites become infected each year, often with serious consequences, so you should not take chances with a dog bite.

Gaining pertinent information about the dog, its owner, and any witnesses is also crucial. You should also report the incident to local police or animal control authorities.

Dog Bite Injury Laws

Dog bite laws vary by place and circumstance, and the time you have to file a lawsuit is limited. In general, a dog bite victim has the right to seek injury compensation from any party whose negligence caused the dog bite attack, any party in violation of leash or restraint laws, and any party who knowingly harbors a dog with a history of biting people.

Talking to a Personal Injury Attorney Should Be Your Next Step

If a dog has bitten you, you may be entitled to recover damages as a result of this injury. Determining your legal rights, however, can be complicated.  It may be unclear who you should bring a claim against, and it may be difficult to determine the damages to which you are entitled. To ensure that you receive just compensation, consult a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to discuss your situation and your legal rights.
