Dog attacks and other animal attacks are not uncommon in Washington, however, they can lead to catastrophic consequences.While most dogs and other pets behave in an appropriate manner when they come into contact with others and do not pose a threat, injuries can occur when pet owners are negligent or fail to follow laws governing pet ownership. Dog bites – even from small breeds – can cause significant injuries and will usually require immediate medical care. In some cases, dog bite injuries can cause disability and long term medical care.
Innocent victims are protected from dog bites and other animal attacks by various laws in the United States, including leash laws, dangerous dog codes and “Lillian’s Law.” “Lillian’s Law” is designed to allow a victim of a dog bite to press criminal charges against someone who knowingly allows a dangerous dog to roam free.
If you or a loved one have suffered from a dog bite, you need an experienced, knowledgeable personal injury attorney who is well versed in the dog bite laws in the United States. Hiring an inexperienced attorney may mean that you are awarded the minimum in damages, while hiring a reputable, professional attorney with proven success in animal attack cases may mean that you are awarded maximum compensation.
