An injury caused by a dog bite can be very traumatic. Unlike people, dogs are incapable of the requisite intent to harm people. The law tends to place liability, then, on the dog’s owner or owners.
This can be complicated by the fact that most dog bites occur by a dog that the injured party is familiar with, or at least owned by a family that the injured party knows. No one wants to sue their friends because one of their beloved pets had a moment of often-natural, dog-like behavior.
However, the injuries from a dog bite can be especially brutal, and the medical bills generated from the treatment for those injuries can rise into the tens of thousands of dollars or more. Most homeowner’s and renter’s insurance policies cover injuries caused by dog bites, and Stracci Law Group will work to get every penny of compensation you’re entitled to.
