If you’ve recently been injured as a result of a dog attack, know that the experienced legal team at Cohen Injury Firm is here to help. The law broadly protects the rights of dog bite injury victims. Therefore, you are likely in a strong position to file legal action against the dog’s owner, a property manager, or anybody else whose negligence, recklessness, or intentionally harmful conduct contributed to the circumstances that led to the attack. Once we have evaluated your circumstances in detail, we can provide you with personalized legal guidance concerning the strengths and weaknesses of your case and whether it could benefit you to bring legal action against those who have caused your harm.
How Dog Bite Cases Are Handled by the Courts
Each state has its own laws concerning dog bite injury cases. Your case will be judged by different standards depending upon where you were when you were bitten. Some states, for example, employ a theory known as strict liability when it comes to dog bite cases. In most cases, this means that a dog owner can be held accountable for a dog attack, even if the dog was not previously known to be vicious. By contrast, some states do not generally allow injury victims to receive compensation unless they can prove that the dog owner either knew or should have known that the dog was dangerous. It is, therefore, important to learn about the ins and outs of your state’s laws before committing to a legal plan of action in the wake of sustaining injury.
At Cohen Injury Firm, we diligently pursue the maximum amount of compensation to which each of our injury victim clients are owed. The amount of compensation that you may be owed will depend upon the circumstances of your attack, the severity of your injuries, and the extent to which your injuries have impacted your life. For example, you may be entitled to reimbursement of any medical expenses that you have either incurred or will incur as a result of your injuries. You may also be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, and any other losses that you have suffered as a result of your attack.
