Dog or animal bites can be a traumatic and terrifying experience that results in serious injury. Being assaulted by an aggressive dog can have lifelong consequences for the victim including physical pain, psychological trauma, scars, and others.
At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Brazil, P.A., we understand that the physical and emotional pain can have a lasting impact on a person or child. If you or your family member has been the victim of an attack by an aggressive pet, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries from the pet’s owner or boarder.
Legal recovery begins with finding the owner or handler of the dog and finding out if the owner was negligent with the dog. The state of Minnesota has a strict liability dog bite statute. Sometimes, merely owning a dangerous animal that attacks is adequate legal grounds for compensation. Pet owners or handlers are legally responsible for the behavior of their dogs. In most cases, the dog’s owner will be required to compensate you for scarring and disfigurement, pain and suffering, medical bills resulting from the attack, and loss of wages from your injuries and medical care.
It is necessary to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure you receive full compensation for your losses. First, seek medical care immediately and document your injuries with accuracy. Second, call The Law Offices of Daniel J. Brazil, P.A. for proficient legal advice regarding your case. Our professional legal staff will make sure that all the evidence is gathered completely for the best possible outcome of your case.
