Compensation For Dog Bite Injuries

Even a slight dog bite is painful; severe biting attacks are frightening and can cause emotional and physical scarring and even death. Recovery from even a small dog bite can be expensive. You have the best chance for obtaining monetary compensation by getting legal representation from experienced personal injury dog bite attorneys with extensive case experience.

Attorneys at the law firm of Durflinger Oliver & Associates PS, located in Tacoma, have established a successful track record of helping injured victims recover fair compensation for injuries from dog bites and other animal attacks. Attorneys Natalie Durflinger and James Oliver are always ready to help injured Tacoma and Seattle dog bite clients. Dog bites are included for damage claim recovery under personal injury law as an incident for which a responsible party must pay for a victim’s medical and expenses. Dogs and other animals are required to be under control, but unfortunately, these animals occasionally do get loose and attack humans. It is possible that you also could be bitten by a dog on a leash or confined in someone’s yard. In that case, the owners of the animal are responsible for damages done by their pets, including medical care costs and other expenses incurred by victims. Damages people receive from dog bites include:

  • Bruising, lacerations and cuts to skin
  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring
  • Lost wages
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Wrongful death, funeral and burial expenses
