Dangerous Dog Breeds
Despite the law being fairly straightforward when it comes to who is liable for attacks, the cases themselves can be complex and require many hours of legal research and labor. Sometimes a certain kind of dog is considered to be more dangerous, so owners are held to a higher level of responsibility. Sometimes different local laws or regulations come into play. Some owners may accuse the victim of provoking an attack, which could also impact a case.
What To Do After a Dog Attack
After an attack, you will want to seek medical treatment as needed. If a dog is considered to be vicious, there’s a risk that the dog may be put down or that special regulations or restrictions will be placed on the owner and his or her pet. Victims typically need to file a claim against the owner in court to obtain compensation for medical bills and other financial burdens.
