Although they are our best friends, dogs can sometimes lash out and bite someone. Dog bite injuries are fairly common and can result in serious injury and, in rare cases, death. If you or a loved one is a victim of a dog bite, it is important to know that you do have legal options that you can exercise. Kelleher Law can help make sure that your physical, emotional, and financial distress is compensated for.
What Should I Do After I’m Bitten?
After you are bitten, make sure you get the dog owner’s information if possible. This is extremely important to help you get reimbursement for your claim. You should also seek medical attention right away as dog bites can transmit diseases. If you do not know the dog’s vaccination status, it is even more important to seek urgent medical care.
After your safety is established contact the legal team at Kelleher Law. We have extensive experience handling dog bite cases. We will review your case for free and guide you through any evidence that you should gather at first, like medical bills and photographs of injuries.
An attorney will also let you know what, and what not, to say when either the owner of the dog calls you or their insurance company calls you to hear the details about what happened. Saying the wrong thing in these situations can lead to not being able to get compensated for your injuries.
What Can I Get Compensated For With Dog Bites?
After a dog attack, you can seek out compensation for all of the following:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Rehabilitation costs
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
