The victims do not deserve what happens to them: an elderly woman walking a small dog, a mail carrier walking his or her route or a child visiting the home of a neighbor in our community does not deserve to be attacked by a dog. When a dog bites, the victim can file a premises liability lawsuit against the dog owner.
- Investigating the attack: We know how to investigate the incident and the specific facts of your attack in the context of the law. Was the attack caused by negligence? Did the owner fail to secure the dog? Was the dog running free without a leash? Did the dog pose a risk to the community?
- Evaluating the dog: We will hire a dog temperament expert who can evaluate the dog and, if permitted, videotape the evaluation. This can be powerful evidence to show an insurance company or a jury. The sooner we know about a dog attack, the better opportunity there will be to gather and secure all necessary evidence, including a dog temperament evaluation.
- Understanding the injuries: Common dog bite injuries include nerve damage, puncture wounds, infections and permanent scarring. In many cases, the worst injuries are psychological. The trauma of being mauled by a dog can stay in the victim’s mind and generate fear long after the physical wounds have healed. Your dog bite lawyer will ask that the compensation be sufficient to treat both physical and psychological trauma.
