Dog bite injuries can be devastating and costly, do not navigate these highly nuanced legal matters alone.
Dog owners hold the responsibility toward the public of making sure their pets are well-tempered. Unfortunately, abusive, negligent, and/or reckless dog owners create a dangerous environment for those around them when they have little control over their animal. Dog bite wounds can be serious, and proper medical treatment is highly advised following an attack, regardless of its perceived severity. Common injuries sustained in dog bite situations include:
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Eye injuries
- Severe infections, such as rabies
- Amputations of fingers and nose
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones from falling due to an attack
- Psychological trauma
Whisler Law Firm sees it to be imperative that we emphasize: regardless of how you feel after a dog bite attack, seek medical attention right away. Adrenaline may mask the full effects of your injuries, and trained medical professionals will ensure that your damages are kept to a minimum while preventing infection.
While relatively uncommon, a myriad of situations may lead to a dog attack. Common causes of dog attacks include (but are not limited to):
Irresponsible care for the animal
Lack of medical care for the dog
Abuse or mistreatment
To ensure success for your dog bite claim, we must prove the legal liability of the irresponsible owner. The steps in doing so are as follows:
- Presenting definitive proof that the defendant owned the dog
- Proving that the dog bite occurred when the victim was lawfully on private property or was on public property
- Proving the victim’s injury was a result of the dog bite
Whisler Law Firm will take all necessary steps to secure compensation for you and your family. We at Whisler understand that dog bite accidents can be traumatic and devastating, leaving victims with physical, emotional, and financial burdens. This is why we will handle your case from A to Z, allowing you to focus on recovery while we aggressively pursue justice on your behalf.
