If you’re injured by someone else’s dog, you should NOT discuss your injuries with the dog owner. 

In fact, I recommend if this happens to you, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately and let that be the ONLY person you discuss your injuries with.


The only reason you want to talk to the dog owner is to gather and exchange information. You don’t want to say anything that may come back to hurt you in your case – especially by recording a statement or signing papers. Don’t do that!

If you’re injured in a dog attack, reach out to an experienced attorney. You shouldn’t be liable for those medical bills – this wasn’t your fault! The dog owner is responsible for this incident and is the one who should be compensating you for medical bills, pain, suffering, lost wages from time off work and more. And this is done through insurance.

Owning a dog comes with the responsibly of keeping it from harming others. Good dog owners know that, but not all dog owners are good ones.

You need an attorney you can trust. You need an attorney who’s going to fight to get you the compensation you’re entitled to while walking and talking you through every step of the process.
