Time is of the essence
Dog bite injuries are a part of the larger body of law called personal injury law. As with all personal injury cases when a dog bite injury occurs, time is of the essence. It is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible to ensure preservation of evidence, getting proper treatment, knowing the laws that govern dog bite injuries, and the relevant statute of limitation that determines how long you have to file a lawsuit.
Preservation of evidence
It is very important to identify the attacking dog and its owner for both proper treatment and recovery of compensation. It is necessary to be able to test the dog for conditions such as rabies so that the victim does not have to undergo unnecessary and extremely painful treatments.
Knowing the identity and location of the owner of the dog is also vital for the ability to recover for medical treatments, which may include hospitalization, plastic surgery, and rehabilitation.
In addition to compensation for medical treatments, the client may be entitled to receive compensation for emotional pain and suffering, property damage such as destroyed clothing, and lost wages.
