What happens when “man’s best friend” viciously attacks you? As domesticated as we believe animals have become in our society, there is still the potential for an attack. Oftentimes those attacks leave long lasting physical and emotional scars of both the victim and the animal owner. State laws differ on what is considered a “dangerous breed” or “dangerous” animal which may affect your ability to make a claim for damages. Further, state laws differ on the liability of owners for the actions of their animals.
Dog bites can cause severe injuries and even infections if not treated properly. The general “one bite rule” may affect your ability to receive compensation for injuries suffered by the attack of an animal. If you have been attacked by an animal, you need an injury lawyer now.
