Recovering Damages for Your Dog Bite Injuries
When you file a claim after an animal attack, you are seeking compensation
for damages that resulted from that attack. This can include a variety
of expenses related to the injury. For example, after the dog bite, you
likely sought medical attention. The projected settlement aims to cover
these expenses. In addition, while receiving medical attention, you may
not have been able to work. Lost wages are then factored into your settlement
as well. A less measurable consequence is the
personal suffering and pain you have endured during this experience. Occasionally you may be able to
recover punitive damages against the owner, as a consequence of his or
her failure to adequately control the animal involved in the attack.
Individuals who can be held responsible dog bite attacks can include:
Guardians or parents of a minor who owns the dog who inflicted the injury
Owners of the dog who attacked you
Property owners who are responsible for the land on which an animal was allowed
Landlords whose tenants own aggressive animals and occupy their property
