Recovering Compensation for Dog Attack Victims

Dog Bite or Animal Bite can cause injuries and other medical issues due to infections. The victim of dog bite/animal bite has the legal right to claim for the compensation under the personal injury law. But first it is in the persons best interest to consult with a dog bite lawyer. In the US the states have different laws, some states declare that the owner of the dog or animal is liable for the compensation and responsible for every action of their dog or animal. Some states declare that a victim should fulfill a few legal requirements while filing the claim. A dog bite injury lawyer is well versed in dealing with these situations.  Personal Injury attorneys who practice in this area are very familiar with the laws.

New York has a mixed rule

In the states where the law is that the owner of the dog/animal is responsible for their action and should pay the compensation you should immediately do the following things after the injury:

  • Get emergency medical treatment
  • Find information of owner of the dog
  • Prove that the dog bit you without cause
  • Prove that you are injured due to the dog bite

Fulfilling the following legal requirements:

  • The dog previously bit someone else (history of biting)
  • History of aggressive and dangerous behavior
  • Member of a dangerous breed

In dog bite cases the victim can claim for the following damages:

  • Compensation of Emergency medical care
  • Surgeries
  • Cost of Medical Diagnostic Tests
  • Medications
  • Physical and Occupational Therapy
  • Lost wages and lost earning potential
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma

According to a report of the Insurance information institute the average payout for a dog/animal bite is $44,760.

In the dog bite claim the injured party may want to immediately get the medical care and collect the evidence.

frequently asked questions

A lawyer provides legal advice and counsel on behalf of someone involved in a legal dispute or legal issue. Also called attorneys or counselors, lawyers typically represent people before a governing body (such as a court) by conducting legal research, gathering relevant documents and witnesses, drafting written briefs, and presenting oral arguments.

To become a lawyer, a person must complete at least three years of intensive legal education and training, take and pass a rigorous state licensing exam (known as the “bar exam”), and pass a personal and moral fitness test.

People who hope to become lawyers must first complete special training and meet other professional requirements. Although each state has its own standards for licensing attorneys, most states require hopeful lawyers to obtain an undergraduate degree and then graduate from an accredited law school. Once the formal education is complete, they must also take and pass the state’s bar examination (a rigid test of knowledge in all fields of law), submit to an investigation into their moral character and fitness to practice law, and be sworn in by their state’s supreme court.

It depends. Attorneys typically charge by the hour, based on their level of experience and other factors, but sometimes they charge a flat fee for certain transactions. While a one- or two-hour visit might cost a few hundred dollars (sometimes the first consultation is free), an ongoing legal dispute or issue can cost thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. On the other hand, some personal injury attorneys don’t collect a dime unless you win your case.
