Will I Need To Hire an Attorney for an Aggressive Dog Injury?

January 10, 2023

When it comes to dogs, we all hope that they are going to be friendly and fun. In some cases, dogs are aggressive and can end up biting you or your loved one. In the case of an aggressive dog bite, there are a few reasons that an attorney might help your case.

Do You Need a Dog Bite Attorney?

Not all dog bites will need an attorney; in some cases, you might get someone who willingly admits that their pet injured you and is willing to pay all the bills associated with the bite. In other cases, you might have a contested dog bite where the owner of the aggressive dog wants to blame the bite on something that you did or refuses to pay for the bills associated with the injury.

In most cases, an attorney will be a great asset that will help you get the money you deserve for the bite, the pain and suffering, and any care you might need to get better from the bite. An attorney will be able to fight for you; they will be able to prove beyond a doubt that you were not to blame for the injury. They will be able to go after the dog owner to ensure they pay your medical bills and ensure that the aggressive dog is handled properly.

What To Do If You Are Injured by a Dog 

The first thing you need to do is get medical help. If the injury is not life-threatening, you may need to take photos as needed, document the incident, and contact either emergency services or the police to help document the scene. After you get your proper medical care, you will need to make sure you document the entire healing process, all the medical procedures that you need, and that you are taking care to document any interaction that takes place.

If you have an uncontested case, the other party is going to help you get your case head, they are going to help get your bills paid, and they are going to be able to get your problems taken care of. A great attorney is going to be able to help you build a case, they are going to be able to support you through the whole process, and they are going to be able to help you get past the dog bite and the injury that came as a result of it.
