Utah Dog Bite Injury AttorneysIf you’ve been bitten by a dog, you have a right to fair compensation for medical bills, ongoing and future treatment, scars, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Dog bite cases look straightforward, but the issues can be very complex.

Who owns the dog and/or property?

Dog owners are typically held responsible for the actions of their pets. This means that you have to know who the owner of the dog is before you can take legal action.

In cases where the dog owner is living in a rented home or apartment, it may be possible to take legal action against the owner of the property. The property owner’s homeowner’s insurance most likely covers dog bites that occur on the insured property.

What to Do When You’ve Been Bitten By A Dog

1)   Get to safety.

2)   Get the wound evaluated and treated by a medical professional. If possible, take pictures of the wound before and after treatment.

3)   Report the incident to the police. The police will prepare a report and get in touch with the animal control department. This will help make sure that dangerous dogs don’t attack again.

4)   If possible, get pictures of the dog and the place where the attack took place.

5)   If possible, write down the names and contact information of people who saw the attack.

5)   Talk to an attorney who has experience with dog bite cases. He can help make sure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you have a right to for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, diminished earning capacity, lost income, and other costs and losses.
