If you file your personal injury claim for a dog bite injury within the given time frame, you may be able to receive compensation for your medical treatment and personal suffering. Animal attacks can be traumatizing, and sometimes carry lifelong consequences. When dog owners fail to appropriately watch over their animals, the damage the dog can inflict upon another individual can even be deadly. Hold pet owners accountable for their negligence by pursuing legal action with the help of our Fargo injury attorneys!
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 due to your personal injury. 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
