Dog bite accidents are oftentimes stressful and violent incidents. If you were a victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation from the dog owner. At Parker, Pallet, Slezak & Russell, LLC, we can help you obtain the payment needed to take care of yourself and ensure no expenses come out of your own pocket. As lovable as dogs may appear, not all of them are friendly to people. Dogs may be triggered into aggression for a variety of reasons, such as to protect their family or in response to fear. Whatever the case may be, if you were bitten by a dog and sustained serious injury, then consider speaking with our Cecil County, MD dog bite lawyer as soon as possible about pursuing compensation. We hope to hear from you. 

After A Dog Bite

If you or someone you care about was bitten by a canine, there are certain steps to follow. Firstly, get medical attention if the injuries are severe. But even if they are not severe, getting an examination by a doctor is a wise choice. Your doctor can treat your injury and then give you copies of medical documentation to use in your case. These documents can support your injury claims and help maximize how much you receive. Secondly, hopefully you were able to gather the owner’s contact information to reach out to them at a later time. If no visible owners were around, take pictures of the dog and area the incident occurred. If witnesses saw what happened, get their name and phone number as well. Contact the police or local authorities, submit a report to your local animal control, and then call our dedicated dog bite attorney about getting compensation for your medical bills and other losses. 

Mental Health Impacts

Victims of dog bite attacks may not only have physical injuries but impacts to their mental health too. Those who used to feel happy and excited to see a dog may now have newly developed fears and anxieties due to the incident. Please let us know the full extent of how you were affected by the event. We understand that you may benefit from speaking with a counselor at this time.

Dealing with a dog bite event can be overwhelming, especially if there was serious injury. Dog owners are responsible for how their animals behave. If they failed to protect someone from their dog’s aggressive behavior, then they could be liable for how victims have suffered. The dog owner could owe you payment for medical care costs, loss of wages if you missed out on work, property damage, and more. If you would like to speak with our Cecil County dog bite attorney about pursuing compensation from the owner, please call or email us today. We have helped many people in similar circumstances, who are injured and need restitution from the at fault party. At Parker, Pallet, Slezak & Russell, LLC, we are ready to offer guidance.
