A Strong Advocate For Dog Bite Victims
Dog bites or any type of animal bite can happen anywhere, at any time. Every year almost 5 million people in the U.S. are victims of dog bites, with hundreds of thousands of them requiring emergency room treatment, and many requiring extensive surgery.
With the help of qualified dog bite lawyer Brett Pearce, victims can recover compensation from the dog owner or custodian, who by law is held responsible for the attack. The dog may have been running “at large” without a leash or the owner may have withheld the fact that the dog had a history of attacking or biting people. Even the landlord of the dog owner may be held partially responsible for the dog bite, by failing to act on prior knowledge about the dog’s aggressive behavior and either placing a leash restriction on the dog’s owner or using legal means to force the tenant to move.
What To Do After A Dog Bite Attack
If you or a family member has been bitten by a dog, you should seek medical care immediately. Even if the wound doesn’t appear to be serious, there is the possibility of infection.
You should also secure the legal services of an experienced dog bite attorney to represent your dog bite case. As a dog bite attorney in Utah, Brett Pearce has the experience you need to secure fair and just compensation for your pain and suffering resulting from a dog bite.
