Animal Bites

According to the Center for Disease Control every 40 seconds someone in the United States seeks medical attention for a dog-bite related injury. The owner of a dog is responsible for the behavior of the dog and any events or accidents that occur because of the dog. When an injury occurs, the owner of the dog may be legally obligated to pay the victim's damages unless the victim provoked the attack. Oftentimes, dog bite victims are compensated for their injuries by the responsible partys homeowner's insurance policy. An experienced attorney can help evaluate the circumstances surrounding a dog bite injury.

The cost of the dog bite attacks in medical bills alone is staggering. Unfortunately, the emotional cost to the victims is even higher. When a dog bites once it is more likely to bite again. By pursuing your claim for damages we may be able to prevent another innocent victim from being bitten by the same dog.

What to do After a Dog Bite Attack

After you have made sure the dog bite victim is safe or at least receiving proper medical attention, it is important to do the following:

Determine the name of the dog.
Determine the name and address of the dogs owner.
Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of all witnesses to the incident.
Take photos of the location of the incident.
Order DNA testing of any saliva of the dog around the wound or on the victims clothing.
Have the treating physician perform an in-depth evaluation of the wound.
If possible, take photographs of the wound.
Do not permit the dog to be destroyed until after DNA testing as well as a mouth casting have been performed. This evidence will help with your dog bite lawsuit.
