Hawaii Dog Bite Lawyer

Legal Action after a Dog Bite

Dog attacks can be emotionally traumatic, as well as causing severe harm or disfigurement. Victims suffer injuries such as laceration, scarring, infection and nerve damage. In some cases the attack can be fatal, a tragedy that is especially common when the victim is a child. If you have been attacked by a dog, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, including emergency treatment and rehabilitative care, as well as for pain and suffering.

It is necessary to prove that the attack was not provoked and that the owner of the dog can be held legally responsible for the attack. Damages in personal injury lawsuits for dog bites are normally awarded on the basis that the owner was negligent or even purposefully instigated the attack.

It is important to take swift legal action after a dog bite, in order to maximize the chances of a successful outcome. By gathering all the available evidence, including testimony of witnesses who saw the attack as well as medical professionals who can testify to the immediate damage and long-term consequences of the injury, you will increase the weight of the case you can bring against the dog owner. A Hawaii personal injury lawyer who has experience with dog bite cases can assist you through the entire process and represent you in court using effective and proven legal strategies.
