Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
Dog bites and animal attacks can result in frightening, life-threatening injuries. Aside from the serious physical and emotional damages, these attacks may cause an individual to face expensive bills related to initial medical care and rehabilitation. While some specific breeds of dogs, most notably pit bulls, may be more likely to attack others, responsibility for the attack ultimately falls upon the aminal’s owner. As such, when an individual’s dog or animal attacks another person, they may be held financially liable for any resulting damages. The Lexington animal attack lawyers of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC, understand how devastating dog bites and other animal attacks can be for victims, and we are prepared to use our legal skills to help injury victims through this difficult situation.
What to Do after an Animal Attack
Though the consequences of an animal attack can be frightening and painful, it is important for victims to know that they are not alone. In order to hold the responsible party accountable for any related expenses, victims of an animal attack should do the following:
- Identify the animal and its owner
- Report the incident to the police
- Take pictures of all sustained injuries
Following these steps can be critical to victims securing the compensation that they need. If you have suffered injuries because of an animal attack, a personal injury lawyer could guide you through the legal process of fighting for compensation.
