If you’ve been attacked by a dog, you may be due compensation for the suffering you experienced. Reach out for a Mesa dog bite attorney when you’re in need of compensation.
A dog attack can happen without warning. One moment, you may have been visiting a friend, taking a walk around the neighborhood, or sitting at a park bench. The next, you were attacked by a dog, and now your health and finances are in jeopardy.
At Zachar Law Firm, P.C., we’re here to help you recover from your dog bite with the funds you need. Reach out to a Mesa dog bite lawyer if you were hurt by a dog and need help getting compensated for your injuries.
When you’ve been bitten by a dog, you of course can’t hold the dog responsible for your injuries. When you’re seeking out compensation for a dog bite, you need to know who’s responsible for the dog.
Typically, responsibility for a dog falls on the dog owners. They’re liable for any injuries their pets cause when the animal attacks unprovoked. Even if they didn’t know their dog was dangerous before the attack, they may be held liable for any injuries the dog causes.
But that’s not always the case for dog bite claims. For example, you may have been bitten by a dog with a child owner. In these cases, the minor’s parents may be financially responsible for the dog attack.
When you’re hurt by a dog attack, you need to know what your claim is worth before you file. Dog bites can be expensive to recover from, and if you don’t ask for the appropriate amount of compensation, you may be left paying for some things out of your own pocket.
Because of this, you need to talk with your Mesa dog attack attorney about the damages accrued. These damages should include all your financial losses, like medical bills and lost wages. A dog bite can leave you with broken bones, infections, and even deadly diseases like rabies.
But you should be compensated for more than your financial losses. You may have also been traumatized by the attack. Now, every encounter with a dog is stressful and scary, no matter how friendly the dog. But intangible losses like this can be difficult to calculate, so speak with your dog bite lawyer before you file a claim.
When you’re hurt in a dog attack, you need to take the right steps for a lawsuit to get your compensation. But you’re hurt and traumatized, so that’s not easy. Luckily, you have options for your lawsuit.
You need representation in the courtroom to get the compensation you’re due. Reach out to the lawyers at Zachar Law Firm, P.C. for your free consultation by calling 602-494-4800 or by completing the following online contact form.
