Delta Dog Bite Lawyer

Many dog attacks happen out of the blue. You, or a family member, are going about your business, chatting with a neighbour– when a dog lunges. Perhaps you are walking your dog, and a stranger’s dog goes after both of you. A child may be playing in his or her yard when a dog enters and bites. When you know the owner, a bad situation becomes even more sensitive.

Our dog bite law firm can help you receive compensation for your injuries. For over 50 years, we have been dedicated to the victims of negligence— which is often the case in these attacks.

Dog bite injuries

These injuries run the gamut, from a relatively minor wound to a mauling, resulting in disfigurement, amputation, copious blood loss, broken bones, and head injuries. Even if the bite itself is not that serious, the victim may suffer severe injuries from falling if the dog knocks them over.

Also, some people may develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after suffering a dog bite. The repercussions of PTSD may affect their health, career, and personal lives.

Always seek prompt medical attention after a dog bite, even if you do not think the injury is bad. Canine mouths have dangerous bacteria and a life-threatening infection could enter your bloodstream. If the animal is not up to date on vaccinations such as rabies or tetanus — this could also pose a serious threat to your health.

Dog identification

As mentioned earlier, if the dog belongs to a friend or neighbour, that makes the situation more delicate. However, from a claim perspective, that is useful, since you can find out whether the dog is vaccinated properly. If a strange dog bit you, you might not have a case unless you can identify the animal and its owner.

If you have your phone with you at the time of the attack, try to take a photo of the dog, as well as pictures of the wounds. If you cannot take a photo of the dog, write down as much information about the animal as quickly as possible. That includes the dog’s size, colour, coat type, any distinguishing characteristics. If the dog looks like a breed or breed type, include that information for your report to the police and local animal control.

Dog bites are traumatic experiences. If you or a loved one were the victims of a dog attack, contact a Delta personal injury lawyer. Call us 24/7  to schedule a free consultation. Depending upon the circumstances, you may collect damages resulting from the physical or psychological trauma of the dog bite.

We are aware that when a friend or neighbour’s dog bites someone, the victim may prove hesitant to file a claim, but the owner’s insurance should cover the damages. Finally, there is never a fee unless we win.
