Do You Have A Valid Dog Bite Claim?

Why do dogs attack? Most dogs will never bite a person unless they are provoked. Well-behaved dogs will sometimes bite a person if they are hurt, surprised, nervous, or feel need to defend themselves. Some dogs will bite a suspicious or unfriendly stranger, or when they feel they need to defend their owners or their property.

According to statistics, in the United States there were more than 30,000 dog bite victims that underwent cosmetic reformation of tissue (surgery) every year, and 15-20 people die from dog attacks yearly. Additionally, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cited that there were 4.5 million dog bites yearly in the U.S. However, only 20 percent of those victims sought emergency medical care for the bite.

What to do when someone is bitten by a dog?

Dog bites can cause damage to everything beneath the skin including the bones, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels.

In case of a dog bite, take the victim away from further danger and put them in a safe place to avoid further attack and injury. Wash the wound with running water and elevate the injured part. If severe, immediately seek medical treatment. You should try and obtain a medical history of a dog as well.

Legal Action

When the injury is severe and has caused so much damage on your part, you should start looking for an Arizona dog bite lawyer for legal processing. The first step for you is to study your state's laws about dog attacks. Some states have a law that states that the owner's cannot be held responsible if it is the first time that the dog has bitten someone. You should do further research about this on the website. Next, you have to know and understand the local laws regarding dog bites in your area. It would be frustrating if you find it hard to prosecute the owner for your injuries if the state law is on the owner's side.

If your country or city has no laws regarding dog bites you may be able to demand claims from the owner's to compensate for your injuries. Additionally, you can also seek for compensation from the dog owner's homeowner's insurance to recover costs from a dog bite injury.

A lawsuit against the dog owner will vary depending on the reason for why the dog bit you. For instance, if you trespassed on someone's property, most likely you will not be able to demand anything. Even if you enter the property with permission and there is a sign that says "Beware of Dog," the owners may still face limited liability.

If you don't know anything about the laws regarding dog bites, it would be best for you to consult a dog bite lawyer for further information about your legal rights.

In most cases, victims of dog bites win their cases and receive the maximum amount of compensation to cover their medical bills, and their loss of wages, although it depends on the severity of their injuries.
