Why You Need Dog Bite Attorneys
Life as you know it can change in an instant when you suffer a personal injury. Suddenly, you are enveloped in pain and suffering, facing outrageous medical bills, and suffering a loss of income due to missing work because of your personal injury. The stress of all this can leave you wondering how you are going to support your family and can cause you to question your financial future.
Dog bite lawsuits are not always easy and clear cut like we think they should be. It is important to seek immediate legal help from a personal injury attorney with experience in dog bite cases. If not, you could be denied compensation for your medical bills, as well as your pain and suffering.
Our dog bite attorneys have at their fingertips the resources of our entire law firm to review entirely the circumstances of your attack. We work on building a case that shows a pattern of aggressive behavior based on the history of the dog, if possible. We also investigate the owner, to see whether there have been previous incidents of negligence or not. Proving that the owner did not use proper precautions to keep the dog from attacking a person will strengthen your case. You don't have to worry about insurance companies, because we will deal with all that, too, ensuring you get the proper medical care for your injury so you can recover from the ordeal with no stress.
The Legalities of Dog Bite Lawsuits
There are approximately 4.5 million people that become dog bite victims each year in the US. When an aggressive dog bites or assaults you, it is terrifying. The attack itself is scary, but the diseases and consequences of such an attack are also dangerous and lead to serious injury. Medical treatment is required for one in five dog bites. Dog bites can cause long term mental complications besides the physical implications that result from a dog bite. Some victims of dog bites suffer infection and scarring, sometimes which leads to the need for cosmetic surgery. Scarring and disfigurement can cause very real psychological issues for the victim, which often affect self-image and eventually relationships.
The most important thing you can do right away is confer with a dog bite personal injury lawyer about your legal rights. Pet owners in the state of Minnesota are the ones responsible legally for any negative behavior displayed by their pets. The dog's owner, in most dog bite cases, is held responsible for compensating the victim for any scarring or disfigurement, pain or suffering, and medical bills that result from the dog attacking the victim. Even if the pet just knocked you down or caused you to fall and you were injured, it is very possible that the pet owner will be held responsible for the injuries incurred.
