Pet owners have a legal obligation to prevent their animals from harming other people and other animals. Animal attacks can result in serious physical and emotional injury. Laws and regulations have been established at the local and state level to keep citizens safe from animal attacks. When such an incident occurs, one should quickly seek the advice of an attorney.
The physical and emotional injuries sustained by these animal attacks could result in tremendous expense, and the pet owner has an obligation to make you whole once again if they are found liable. Seeking the input of a qualified lawyer can make what would otherwise be an intimidating process easier to navigate. An attorney well-versed in animal attacks can help make sure that you receive any treatment and compensation you may deserve.
Although it is typically dogs who first come to mind when you think of injuries caused by domestic animals, injuries can be caused by a wide variety of animals. On some occasions, the accident itself may sound somewhat humorous, such as the case of the attacking duck, but the injuries caused by the attack can be quite serious for which the injured party is owed compensation.
