Dog Bites: We’ll Help You Receive the Damages you Deserve
Dogs are affectionately known as man’s best friend. At Hal K. Waldman & Associates, we’re dog lovers through and through. However, we know that sometimes dog bites happen, whether a dog is acting out of protection, possessiveness, aggression, or is simply scared or startled.
Whether a dog meant to bite or harm anyone, it can and does happen. If you or a loved one has been bitten or otherwise injured by a dog, you are entitled to compensation for those injuries.
Being a dog owner comes with a great deal of responsibility and dog owners are accountable for their dogs at all times. Dog bites can occur when visiting a friend, relative or neighbor. They can happen at a dog park or when a dog gets out from it’s owners home. They happen to voulenteers and patrons of dog shelters. Sometimes they happen on your property when a dog is visiting your home.
If a dog inflicts injury on another human or another animal it can be an extremely traumatic experience for everyone involved. We are here to help you through the process of recovering compensation for your pain and suffering and explain the process to you.
If a dog has bitten you, your child or loved one, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. No matter how adorable, all dogs can carry and transmit severe and infectious diseases and bacteria in their saliva. You will need to be tested and possibly treated, even if the bite is small and doesn’t require stitches. Additionally, If you are able to take photos of your injuries, we would advise to take some to document your injuries.
Once you receive medical attention, you need to seek compensation for medical expenses along with associated damages such as lost work, pain and suffering, emotional distress and possibly more. While you may love animals, you are entitled to compensation for what you have been through.
After seeking medical care, consult with any of our experienced dog bite attorneys at Hal Waldman & Associates before speaking with the dog’s owner or an insurance company. We can be reached online or by calling our office at (412) 338-1000 to schedule a free consultation.
