Other losses you may be entitled to recover
There are a variety of ways to recover compensation after an animal bite. You may qualify for compensation for your non-economic losses – such as pain, emotional suffering, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life – if you can prove that the owner knew or should have known about the dog’s dangerous characteristics before the attack and didn’t take appropriate measures to restrain it, or if the attack was caused by the owner’s violation of animal control laws.
It is important to contact a local personal injury attorney right away if you’ve been injured in an animal or dog attack, or if you know someone who has.
Animal bite cases call for a knowledgeable attorney’s help
Animal bite cases require immediate investigation in order to preserve the evidence before it disappears. Witnesses can move, documents can be destroyed, and photos and videos can be erased. In addition, the law gives you two years to file a lawsuit, and it is a strict deadline.
