Dog Bites

How Negligence Can Play a Role

To get compensation for injuries from a dog bit, an injured person needs to show that the owner of the dog failed to use reasonable care to prevent the dog from harming the injured person and that the dog owner knew or should have known that the dog would cause the injury if the owner did not control or confine the dog. This can make it difficult for a victim to pursue any kind of settlement without a detailed, compelling case, and a dedicated lawyer can help arrange a well-documented case which will do just that.

Being involved in a dog bite attack can be a harrowing experience. Dogs may attack a child or adult suddenly and without any warning. There are many scenarios where an animal owner may be aware that a person is entering into a potentially dangerous situation with their pet, and it is their responsibility to make sure an attack is avoided. This includes cases where the dog may be aggressive around food or its area, or if the individual unknowingly pesters the animal into an attack, such as in cases of innocent children who love dogs. No matter the reason, these attacks can result in a number of serious personal injuries such as broken bones, lacerations, punctured organs disfigurement and death.
