Dog Bite Injury Claim

Animal related accidents such as a dog bite or a dog attack are the responsibility of dog’s owners even if the pets have no violence in their history. Dog bites can seem to be not of big deal but sometimes they may result in serious injuries and even deaths. If you, your friend or a family member has been a victim of a dog bite, then you have all the civil and legal right to file a dog bite injury claim. In many states, if you get injured due to an animal like a dog causing you to fall off your bike or trip, the owner of the pet is firmly liable to compensate for your injuries. However, if you were trespassing or intentionally teasing the animal, then you are not liable to get compensation.

A professional lawyer will be helpful to negotiate and litigate your case especially if you are suffering from some serious dog bites. These sites may leave ugly scars especially on the faces and heads of children who the dogs are more likely to bite. Sometimes, you may need to undergo a re-constructive surgery. In that instance, a professional lawyer will be the one who may help you in getting compensation for all your medical, emotional as well as financial damages. Normally, animal related accidents involved in these claims include serious bites of dogs resulting in nerve damage, scarring or severe infection, falls or trips suffered during escaping or fending off a nasty dog or bites and injuries caused due to any other animal or pet.

Dogs generally bite people if they enter into the home or property in which they live. Law states that it is the owner of the dog who is accountable for any damages or injuries caused due to their pets. If you are making your dog bite injury claim, you need to prove in the court that the pet was violent, was naturally dangerous and the owner was familiar with this problem in the animal. In most of the dog bite instances, the situation can be proved with the help of medical records, photographs, witnesses and evidence that the animal had caused physical harm to you substantially. The case tends to become more complicated if the animal was not properly vaccinated, therefore, it is important for the lawyer to collect relevant vaccination records as well as licenses in addition to the witness testimonies who were present on the accident spot. If contacted in right time, a proficient lawyer will provide you proper presentation of your case in the court.
