Premises liability is an area of personal injury that can encompass a variety of situations. We recently discussed one of these areas, dog bites. Some of the others include slip-and-fall accidents or falling object cases. We realize that people who are injured in an accident on another person’s property might not feel like they have any possible recourse.
You should realize that you do have the option of seeking compensation for the damages that you suffered due to the accident. When the accident is a dog bite, you might have multiple avenues to explore for compensation. It is imperative that you consider each one and determine which one or ones you are going to pursue.
The pain that you are likely to experience with a dog bite is serious. The bite will tear your flesh, which can lead to searing pain. You might need to be medicated to handle the pain in those initial days.
We are here to help you seek compensation for the monetary damages that you suffered due to the dog bite. We can also determine what noneconomic damages you suffered. We have to look at the full picture in these cases. This includes adding up your medical bills, finding out what types of medical expenses you might incur in the future and the amount of money you lost if you had to miss work.
Taking all of this into account and proving that the dog owner was negligent are vital parts of a dog bite case. We can help you to work through these aspects of the case so that you can focus on recovering from the bite.
