Dog Bite in Surrey


The vast majority of dogs are friendly. Some, however, occasionally exhibit aggressive or dangerous behaviour such as growling, snapping, and even biting. When a dog bites, the results can be catastrophic. Scarring, nerve damage, disfigurement, and infection are all a possibility. There are national, provincial and local laws that govern how victims can recover compensation after a dog bite incident, but these cases often depend heavily on the individual circumstances of the incident.

What steps should I take after a dog bite incident?

After seeking medical attention for your injuries, you should consider meeting with an experienced Surrey dog bite lawyer at the Preszler Injury Lawyers. It is critical to have a trained professional evaluate the facts of your incident and provide you with their opinion about the viability and worth of your claim. Your lawyer will only accept your case if they believes they can achieve a positive outcome for you.

Additionally, the sooner you retain a lawyer from our firm, the sooner we can start investigating the cause of the dog bite and gathering evidence to support your case.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we offer injured individuals or their families a free, initial consultation. If you would like us to review your case and answer your questions at no cost, call us at 1-844-373-8202 today.

When you file a claim, there are a number of heads of damages that you may be able to collect, including but not limited to:

If you decide to handle your claim without a lawyer, it is still in your best interest to review any settlement offers with a Surrey dog bite lawyer before accepting.
