A Dog Bite Attorney Can Help Make Claims on the Homeowners Insurance of the Dog Owner
This means that there is really no reason for the dog owner to freak out. Nine times out of ten they pay nothing out of pocket. Their insurance company handles the whole thing for them. If the case cannot reach a fair settlement, filing a lawsuit by the victim can be essential to account for the damages including those for medical bills, lost wages, lost time, and therapy or rehabilitation expenses.
fLike other legal issues, it is a good idea to start collecting and recording the details of what happened and include proof on whether the dog has bitten someone else previously or that the dog has an aggressive nature and so on. The more information and better details you can provide, the better it makes your case.
Speak to a St. George personal injury attorney to make sure that you are adequately compensated for damages suffered physically, emotionally and monetarily.

In Southern Utah, dog owners sometimes get a bit hostile towards dog bite victims. This makes absolutely no sense. No one wants to be bitten by a dog. That is why Utah law uses “strict liability” when it comes to dog bites. That means that the owner or keeper of the dog is responsible for the dog bite injuries and resulting medical bills automatically- whether the owner was careless in some way or not.
