Petting someone’s dog can be harmless, but sometimes, it can end tragically. Dogs can be unpredictable and end up causing severe injuries if they bite or attack you. And some wounds you sustain may not heal for a long time, leaving you with costly medical bills and no way to pay them.
But with the help of an Ogden dog bite lawyer, you can recover compensation for your injuries. At 1Law, we specialize in finding you the lawyer that fits your needs. We have a large network of attorneys, and we’re ready to help you build a winning dog bite claim.
You can suffer a variety of injuries when you get attacked by a dog. The severity of your dog bite injury depends on the size of the dog that attacked you and the details of the attack. Some of the most common dog bite injuries that may qualify you for compensation may include:
The first thing you should do after you suffer a dog bite is to seek medical help. After you have a doctor diagnose and treat your injuries, you should contact a dog bite lawyer.
If you don’t see your injury listed above, you still may qualify for a dog bite case and compensation. To find out if you have a valid case, one of the attorneys in our network can give you a free consultation and verify if you have a case.
After you suffer a dog attack in Utah, you have four years to file a claim against the owner of the dog and any other negligent parties, per Utah Code Ann. § 78B-2-307. This amount of time may seem like you have a long time to file, but the time can go by quickly. That’s why it’s best to file your claim as early as you can.
In some situations, you may have more or less than four years to file your claim. The amount of time you have can depend on the details of your injury. But the only way to know exactly how long you have is to meet with one of the dog bite lawyers in our network.
If you end up waiting too long to file, you may miss the deadline. And once you miss the deadline, you won’t be able to recover any form of compensation. This is why it’s essential to get in touch with an Ogden, UT, dog bite attorney.
