It’s a sad and unfortunate fact, but dog bites happen every single day to the tune of 13,000 across the United States. Many more happen but go unreported because the victims don’t think they have a case against a dog. The truth is, they do.
The dog bite attorneys of Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys have collected millions of dollars for their clients who have been attacked by a dog. However, there are a few things you need to prove before you have a good case.
First, you need to prove that the defendant owned the dog in question. Second, that you were lawfully on the premises where the attack occurred. Lastly, you need to prove that the bite directly caused you the injuries that required medical attention.
Upwards of $350,000 has been recovered from a dog bite. Sadly, most of the victims are children and the injuries are to the head and neck. This is absolutely unacceptable behavior and the dog’s owner is responsible for the dog’s actions.
Gathering photographic evidence and taking down witness statements can also go a long way in helping your case against a guilty party. When it comes to evidence, the more the better.
