Dog Bites

If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog, a personal injury 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. 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.
