Representing Dog Bite Victims And Their Families
Although dogs are commonly known as “Man’s Best Friend,” it’s crucial to remember that they are animals and may bite. In the United States, approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs annually, with the most affected group being children aged 5 to 9.
Liability In Dog Bite Cases
Being able to prove the owner’s negligence is not essential for winning your case related to a dog bite. However, if you were attacked because you provoked the dog or were trespassing, you cannot legally make a claim for a dog bite injury.
What Compensation Can Dog Bite Victims Recover?
If a dog has bitten you, you have the right to receive fair and appropriate compensation for any losses or damages incurred. These damages may encompass a wide range of harm experienced by the victim.
What To Do After A Dog Bite Injury
Seek Medical Care
It's important to seek medical care for any injury, no matter how small it may seem. Even minor wounds can become infected, especially if the dog that bit you wasn't vaccinated against rabies.
In the event of a dog-related incident, it is crucial to exchange contact details with the owner of the dog. This includes their name, phone number, and address, similar to what you would do after a car accident.
If there were any witnesses present during the incident, please obtain their contact information. Nowadays, people often use their phones to take videos or photos of what's happening, so it is possible a witness might have captured footage that would be helpful for your claim.
