Take action when an animal bites or attacks you

Dog bites, cat bites and even cat scratches are injuries that can lead to significant medical care. Infections and other issues can manifest. On top of the time-consuming medical care that is necessary, animal bite victims often have to deal with pain. When the bite is bad enough, the victim might have to miss work or school.

We understand that you likely didn't do anything that should have led to an animal bite or a cat scratch. In many cases, the owner of the animal will fight against the claim that the animal bite or cat scratch occurred unprovoked.

When we investigate the incident, we can look into whether the dog has had previous complaints of viciousness or not. If there is a previous history, we can use that factor in your case. Even if there wasn't a history with that animal, we can still help you learn about seeking compensation for your injuries.

One point that we must consider when we are filing a claim for compensation is who should be named in the case. Some dog owners have insurance policies that should cover animal bites as long as the person reported that they own the animal if it is one that is required to be reported to the insurance company. We can help you to determine who should be named in the lawsuit so that we can make sure you have the best chance of compensation possible.

No matter what, you should never let an animal attack go unreported. Always make sure that you get medical care for your injuries. Once you do that, you can take action to seek compensation.
