Seattle Dog Bite Attorney
Attacked by someone else's dangerous pet?
Having a dog or other large pet has become more and more popular. A pet
owner is responsible for the actions of their pet, including if it should
attack and harm another individual. It is unfortunately true that many
pet owners do not take the time to properly train their pet, or they may
consider they need an “attack dog” to protect their homes.
This irresponsible pet training can lead to disfiguring dog bites to other
individuals in the neighborhood. This is particularly horrible when a
child is involved. Some dog bites, for example, can cause disfigurement
and permanent scarring. Certainly the effects on the person can last a
lifetime. If you or your child was attacked by a dog, you have rights.

What should I do after being bitten by a dog?
If you or a family member has been the victim of an attack by a vicious
animal, it serves your best interests to contact a practiced
premises liability attorney in Seattle without delay. After the attack, the first step is to get medical help.
If possible, take pictures of the location of the attack and the animal
itself. Do not speak to the pet owner about settlement or compensation,
or even the pet owner’s insurance company personnel. Anything that
you say may affect your claim for damages in the future. You should have
a qualified personal injury lawyer by your side every step of the way.
