Seattle, Tacoma & Washington State Dog Bite Attorney
Each year, dog bites are responsible for serious physical and emotional injuries to their victims. If you live in Washington and a dog attacks you – and you did not provoke it – the owner is liable for your injuries. Usually, homeowner’s insurance will cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain & suffering. If the owner of the dog lives in a rented house or apartment, the owner of the property may be sued. But in both cases, the amount can vary widely depending on how skillfully you negotiate the settlement.
A skilled lawyer will carefully assess your case to find out what insurance money you are entitled to for medical bills and other expenses. If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog, it is important that you both contact an attorney and document the incident by filing a police report. Many times, the offending dog has been allowed to run loose and it may be difficult to find and identify its owner. If you’ve been injured, call John Sterbick at 1–888–838–3529 for a complimentary, no-obligation appointment. He’ll help you learn about your rights, including the right to fair compensation.
