About Dog Bites and Attacks
Approximately 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs every year. Of those millions of victims, about half of them are children, with senior citizens being the second most common demographic. These bites usually occur during normal, everyday interactions with dogs that are familiar to the victims. When the owner of a dog that is known to be aggressive fails to control their pet, they can be held liable for the accident.
How Can Our Salt Lake City Dog Bite Accident Lawyer Help?
Our dog bite attorneys in Salt Lake City can help you:
- Investigate the dog’s owner and the dog. Our lawyers can help determine if the dog that you were attacked by has attacked anyone else or displayed aggressive behavior previously. If so, we may be able to prove that the owner was negligent in their responsibilities.
- Calculate the costs of your dog bite injury. Dog bite injuries are often exceedingly expensive to deal with, especially in America, where healthcare is the most expensive in the world. Our attorneys can help you determine the amount of compensation you deserve for lost wages, future medical treatments, and rehabilitation.
- Negotiate with the insurance company. Insurance companies value profit over all else; so naturally, they will want to pay you as little as possible. Our lawyers have extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies and will not let our clients be bullied by these large corporations. We always fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
