Christa R. Haggai, Attorney-at-Law
Dog bites happen all too often, and when they do, victims need to take steps that can help them should they choose to file a lawsuit against the dog’s owner. If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog, it is important that you:
If you were bitten or attacked by a dog, you may be entitled compensation for your injuries. Filing a claim against the dog’s owner does not mean they will have to pay out of pocket for your injuries. Oftentimes, these incidents are covered under homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance, unless the dog has bitten someone in the past.
After a dog bite, you may not know what to do first or where to turn for help. Consulting an experienced personal injury attorney can help point you in the right direction and bolster your claim against the dog’s owner. Additionally, if you do not know who owns the dog that attacked you, a dog bite attorney can do some investigating and identify the responsible party against whom you should file a claim.
