Dog Bite and
Animal Attack Injury

Children, postal carriers, meter readers, delivery personnel, visitors to the home and neighbors and their visitors, ALL should be allowed to enjoy public places and visit premises without harm. Animal owners are required by law to be responsible for their pet’s actions, whether on their premises or off.

The owners have an obligation to warn anyone who reasonably is expected to enter their property that attack animals are on the premises, and to properly restrain their animals.

If you or someone you love has been attacked by a dog or other animal, and sustained serious injury, the owner of that animal may be responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of the ability to enjoy life and disability. If your injuries are permanent, you may be entitled to future medical bills, lost wages, loss of your future earning capacity and other damages such as pain and suffering, loss of ability to enjoy life, and disability.

Laws vary among the states. Some states hold owners strictly liable for any injury their pets cause which is the law in the State of Washington. Other states may require the owner to be aware of the aggressiveness or dangerousness of their dog.
