Any victim of a dog bite could be entitled to compensation. Treating a dog bite can require any number of treatments, you could spend an extended period of time in the hospital, you may even need surgery, reconstructive or otherwise, to heal any lacerations you sustain from a bite or multiple bites. You may need to undergo rehabilitation and physical therapy.
What about when you get out of the hospital? You may be wrestling with mental and emotional suffering and post-traumatic stress disorder that could make you very fearful to venture out to your favorite places and especially the location where the dog bite incident originally occurred.
Dog owners who show negligence in the care and control of their animals can be held liable for any injuries that are incurred by others as a result of these actions. But when a dog has bitten or attacked you, the owner may attempt to point the blame on you for the actions of the animal. Therefore, you need to build a strong case against the dog owner. That may require you to prove prior examples of negligence or demonstrate the actions of the owner in other situations where the dog has attempted to attack other people or other dogs.
This isn’t something you should do on your own. You want to get a personal injury firm on your side who has the experience and knowledge to take on your dog bite case and, more importantly, win so you can receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
