Holding Dog Owners Accountable After Suffering A Dog Bite
Under Minnesota law, the owner of a dog that bites you is liable for all the damages their dog causes you to experience. When a dog attacks or injures you without any provocation, you need to meet with an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey A. Jones, P.A., our attorneys have decades of experience helping clients maximize the compensation they receive for their injuries. We understand the challenges in these cases, and we are here to help you resolve your claim in as little time and difficulty as possible.
What Your Compensation Should Cover
Before accepting any settlement offers, you need to understand the long-term consequences of your injury. Dog bites, especially severe ones, can result in injuries like:
- Scarring – Even dog bites that appear shallow can leave permanent scarring, which can leave a victim with pain, discomfort and emotional trauma.
- Nerve damage – Depending on where the dog bite takes place, a victim can experience nerve damage that causes numbness, motor issues or paralysis.
- Amputation – If the damage from the bite is extreme enough, it may require amputation of the affected area.
- Emotional damage – Dog bites can also cause a victim to become phobic of other dogs or being outside, and even afflict them with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Do not underestimate the consequences of dog bite injuries. Some victims have a lifetime trauma and other results, including medical bills, loss of earning potential, and pain and suffering. Our goal as your legal representation is to maximize the financial settlement in your injury claim so you have the resources you need to cover both the short-term and long-term costs of your recovery.
