Do You Have a Case?

If you have sustained injuries from a dog attack, you may have a case for a lawsuit. While submitting your case for a free review is the best way to find out whether you can pursue compensation, we have provided some information below to give you an idea of whether you qualify.

Common injuries from dog attacks can include lacerations, puncture wounds, disfigurement, broken bones, nerve damage, and in severe cases, even death. 

In addition to physical injuries, dog bites can also cause emotional trauma, such as anxiety, fear, and depression. These emotional injuries can be just as debilitating as physical injuries, and can also be compensated for in a legal claim. 

It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you are bitten by a dog, as injuries can become infected or worsen without proper treatment.

It is important to note that in Alabama, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. This means that you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the dog attack. Otherwise, you will not be able to seek compensation for your injuries at all.

Liability is a crucial element in a dog attack lawsuit as it determines who is responsible for the injuries and damages. In order to succeed in a dog attack lawsuit, the injured person must prove that the dog owner was negligent or strictly liable. 

For example, if the dog had a known history of aggressive behavior and the owner did not take necessary precautions to prevent the attack, such as keeping the dog properly confined, the owner can be held liable for the victim’s injuries. Additionally, the owner can also be held liable if they failed to properly train or supervise the dog.

Our experienced attorneys can help gather evidence to prove negligence or liability on the part of the dog owner. This may include any prior reports or incidents of aggressive behavior relating to the dog and any local laws or ordinances that the owner may have violated.

What Compensation Can I Recover?

With a successful dog attack lawsuit, you may be able to recover a variety of damages. The exact amount of compensation you will be able to recover depends on the severity of your injuries and the specific circumstances of your case. Some of the damages available in this type of lawsuit include the following:

  • Medical expenses: These account for the cost of any medical treatment you have received, such as emergency care, hospital stays, surgeries, and follow-up care. It can also include the cost of any future medical treatment you may need as a result of the dog bite.
  • Lost wages: If you have had to miss work as a result of your injuries, you may be entitled to recover the wages you have lost. Again, this may also account for future lost wages that you are reasonably expected to miss out on.
  • Pain and suffering: This can include physical pain, emotional distress, and other non-economic damages.
  • Punitive damages: In some cases, the court may award punitive damages intended to punish the dog owner for their negligent behavior and to deter them from allowing it to happen in the future.

During your free consultation, our legal team will help you determine the full value of your case.

What Can Those Thumbs Up Guys® Do For Me?

Though it may seem counterintuitive, insurance companies are not always on your side. Of course, we expect insurance to protect us when we are injured, but that isn’t always the case when it comes to paying out your claim.

Our team of experienced attorneys will handle the entire legal process, including evidence collection, negotiations, and litigation if necessary. We will work to build a strong case that proves the severity of your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.

Additionally, we will communicate with you every step of the way to keep you informed and up to date on the progress of your case. You can trust that we will not back down and will fight for the maximum compensation legally available. Don’t let the insurance company take advantage of you — let us be your fierce advocates.

What Comes Next?

Get in touch with us to schedule a consultation, either in person, over the phone, or online, to discuss your dog attack case and explore the legal options available to you. You can even have the consultation from the comfort of your own home.

Your attorney will gather all necessary documents and evidence to construct a compelling case for maximum compensation. This includes anything from police or medical records of the incident, medical bills, witness statements, and journals detailing how the injury has impacted your life.

Navigating the negotiation process in a dog attack lawsuit can be emotionally and mentally draining, which is why our firm is here to act as your advocate and fight for justice on your behalf. We will keep you informed every step of the way, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve for the incident.

Once an offer is made that you agree is fair, we’ll inform you and help you make the decision that’s best for you. Your attorney will make sure you get your compensation as soon as possible.

Dog Attack FAQs

If a dog attacks you, seek medical attention immediately. Even if your injuries seem minor, it is important to have them properly treated. You should also try to get the contact information for the dog’s owner and any witnesses to the attack. Medical records and the owner’s information will be helpful if you decide to file a lawsuit.

If the dog’s owner does not have insurance, you may still be able to recover damages through a lawsuit. You may be able to pursue compensation through the owner’s personal assets or through their homeowner’s insurance if the attack occurred on their property.

Generally, property owners have a duty to warn visitors of any known hazards on their property. However, if you were trespassing at the time of the attack, your ability to recover damages may be limited. It is important to consult with our knowledgeable legal team to understand your options.

When you work with us, you can rest assured that there will be no upfront fees and your case review will come at absolutely no cost.

We understand that the legal process can be overwhelming, which is why we work on a contingency basis. This means that if we cannot secure compensation for your dog attack injuries, you will not owe us any fees.
