When You Have Been Attacked by a Dog or other Domestic Animal

When you have been bitten, mauled or otherwise attacked by someone else's dog or domestic animal, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention, either from your general practitioner or in an emergency room or clinic. The sooner you do, the better. You want a physician to examine you immediately after the attack, so that you get a full accounting of all your injuries and you have the best chance for complete recovery. You should also schedule regular appointments with your own doctor until you are certain you have completely healed or will make no further improvements.

Though your next thought might be to contact your health insurance carrier, you should contact an attorney. Insurance companies maximize their profits by minimizing the amount they pay on claims. You may think that coverage is cut and dried, but discover that your insurance carrier is delaying payment or offering to pay less than the full amount of your injury. When you hire an attorney, your case will most likely be handled on a contingency basis, so your attorney will make more money by getting more compensation for you.

To help you get full and fair compensation for your injuries, your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of all facts and circumstances related to your case. County and city records can be checked to determine whether the animal has a history of attacking people. Veterinarian and shot records can also provide important evidence to demonstrate that the owner knew or should have known how dangerous the animal was. Neighbors and others may be able to testify to prior instances of violence by the dog.
