Dog Bites Can Cause Permanent Scarring And Psychological Struggles
Dog owners are responsible for keeping their pets from harming other people. Dog bite injuries are common, and unfortunately, children are often the victims.
At Reinig, Barber & Henry, we help people who have been injured by dog bites and other animal attacks. We have extensive experience handling personal injury claims and a long track record of success in winning large settlements for our clients.
Holding Careless Dog Owners Accountable
In Washington, dog bites are considered a “strict liability” tort. This means the owner is liable for any bite, except for a circumstance in which the dog was intentionally provoked. Also, in Washington, dogs do not get a “free bite.” Every bite is punishable.
If you or someone close to you has been injured by a dog, we can help you seek compensation for your:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Reconstructive surgery
Dog bites can result in serious injuries, including punctures, scarring and disfigurement. Our lawyers have handled many of these cases and understand how to demonstrate liability and present compelling cases for our clients.
If you have been injured by a dog bite, we urge you to seek medical attention as soon as possible. These bites can lead to serious infections, rabies and other dangerous conditions. When you are ready to explore your legal options, we will be here for you.
