Have you or a loved one experienced a severe dog bite injury? According to North Carolina Law, as a Dog Bite victim you may have the right to be compensated by the dog’s owner for any damages caused from the attack.
The first step is to ask the dog’s owner if he/she has homeowner’s insurance. If the owner will not tell you whether or not they have insurance, then you made need assistance of an attorney or do additional research to find out. We suggest you do this first because if there is no insurance coverage available, it may be difficult to find an attorney to pursue your case. Even if there is homeowner’s insurance available, there may be language in the policy that prevents them from paying for dog bite claims.
In addition to contacting an experienced animal attack attorney, you should be careful to document several aspects of the attack including:
Collecting this information can play an important role in determining whether the dog’s owner truly is liable for the attack. Don’t wait to contact an attorney. Not only can you be provided with compensation, but you can help prevent future attacks as well. If you would like to talk with an experienced and caring dog bite attorney please contact the law offices of Kelly & West today.
