Kennewick Dog Bite Lawyers Can Help You With a Claim
If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog, a Kennewick dog bite attorney can help. An attorney will make sure you receive the compensation you need to cover the expenses that occur as a result of the bite. Dog bites can cause serious injuries – including illnesses, permanent scarring, lifelong psychological problems and – in rare cases – even death.
Statistics suggest that 1 in 5 dog bites require medical attention – which indicates there are roughly 1.7 million people who experience dog bites in a year. According to the CDC, there were an estimated 344,000 injuries treated in emergency rooms due to dog bites in 2018. Washington State Law specifically states that dog owners are liable for damages when their dog bites someone in a public place or when “lawfully in or on a private place” – including their own home.
It is often difficult to find adequate insurance to compensate the victim for his or her dog bite injuries. Additionally, oftentimes the dog’s owner will have little or no homeowners insurance to cover the injuries and compensate a dog bite victim.
