Dog Bite Attack: Who is Liable?
Did you know that 1 in every 5 dog bites requires immediate medical attention? A dog bite that may seem like a minor cut or scratch can actually be extremely dangerous if left untreated. Most people don’t know that having a dog bite or scratch automatically puts you at risk of an infection.
In the majority of cases, dog attack victims are either related to or are friends with the dog owner. For this reason alone, you may be hesitant, at first, to file a claim for your dog bite injuries. We understand this hesitation. What most people don’t know about dog bite injury claims is that you don’t sue the dog’s owner. You file a claim against the home owner’s insurance policy. Here at The Advocates we will work with you in a sensitive and professional manner to ensure no damage comes to your personal relationships.
