Hundreds of thousands of people are bitten by someone else's dog annually. Approximately one-sixth of those bites require medical attention. When a dog bite occurs, the dog owner, not the individual dog, is responsible. Generally speaking, all a dog bite victim must show is that he or she was bitten and did not provoke the dog.
If you suffered injuries after being attacked by a dog, it is important to know your legal rights. The success of your claim for damages depends on where the attack occurred because dog bite laws vary among states, counties, and cities. Our attorneys can help you determine your rights under these assorted laws, file insurance claims, and make an effective claim for compensation.
