Tacoma Dog Bite Injury Attorneys

Dog Attack Injury Statistics

According to the National Institute of Health, over 12 million people were bitten by a dog between 2001 and 2003, with over 800,000 of those incidents requiring medical attention. These are not insignificant figures. Attacks by a dog can be terrifying, and the damages can result in serious losses, including hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, and lost wages due to medical treatment.

Now is the time to call a dog attack attorney and discuss your legal options. Call Daryl Graves Law, PLLC today at (253) 217-4849.

If you have been attacked by a dog, it’s important to seek medical care right away and file a report. A report is necessary for you to make a personal injury claim, and it’s also the right thing to do to prevent that same dog from attacking someone else. If you are the dog’s owner, it’s important to know your rights and what you could be held liable for if your dog or other pet attacks someone.

Injuries that often accompany a dog attack include:

  • Bone fracture
  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Lasting fear of dogs
  • Emotional distress

Dog Attack and Bite Cases are Favorable to Victims in WA State

Each state carries different laws when it comes to animal attacks. Washington State’s dog bite statute favors the victim of a dog bite or attack, holding dog owners strictly liable when their dogs attack or bite someone. The dog owner may argue that your efforts to protect yourself were interpreted as a provocation, but this does not affect your lack of liability in the case.

The law also protects landlords who do not have any relationship to their tenant’s dog. Regardless of your situation, give us a call for a free consultation. We can help you mitigate the situation or get you fair compensation for your injuries.
