Can I Recover Damages from a Dog Bite Injury?

If you are injured by a dog bite, it is important to seek medical attention and get the proper care for your injuries as soon as possible.  Be sure to thoroughly document all medical treatment and expenses associated with your injuries.  Next you should try to gather all the relevant information you can, including the pet owner’s contact and insurance information, the dog’s history, and statements from any witnesses of the incident.  

File a dog bite report your local police department, which can be useful if you decide to file a legal claim.  Finally, seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you navigate the claim process and work with the pet owner’s insurance company. You may have extensive medical expenses and even lost wages or other expenses if your injuries are extensive. Please contact us today to discuss your dog bite injury case.
