If you’re injured in a dog attack by someone else’s dog, then there’s several factors that can go towards the compensation you’re entitled to.
This is the big one. Medical treatment is expensive and you shouldn’t be held responsible for the medical bills you accrued from an attack that wasn’t your fault by a dog that wasn’t yours!
Lost Wages From Time off Work
If your injuries cause you to miss work, then those are wages you should be compensated for. You shouldn’t have to suffer from those lost wages because the attack was not your fault! The dog owner should be liable instead. Even if your employer allows you to take paid vacation or sick days to heal from your injuries, those are paid days off you could’ve used in the future for their actual purpose.
Pain and Suffering
A dog attack rarely comes without some pain and suffering, and this isn’t fun to go through. Your pain and suffering you went through could’ve been avoided if the dog owner wasn’t negligent. Therefore, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering. This also includes any permanent scars the dog attack may have caused.
If you’ve been injured in a dog attack, contact an experienced personal injury attorney. That attorney will look at your case detail by detail and determine who was liable, whether or not you’re entitled to compensation and how much.
You need an attorney you can trust. You need an attorney who’ll fight on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve while walking and talking you through the process. You need an attorney who’ll treat you as more than a case number.
