Animal Attacks: Are You entitled to recover for injuries sustained in an attack by a pet?

Harding Law Firm - Wednesday, April 08, 2015

Many people sustain serious injuries when they are attacked and/or bitten by an animal? Do they have a right to be compensated for their injuries from the owners of the animal?

As it turns out, yes you are, if the animal has a history of or known propensity to cause such an injury. You would have the right to recover for any injuries or damages that occurred during the attack. What could that include?

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Any wardrobe that was damaged during the attack
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Permanent scarring

Many dog owners refuse to admit they had knowledge of the animal’s dangerous propensity. A prompt investigation is essential. An experienced attorney can help discover the necessary information.
