When Should You Hire A Lawyer For A Dog Bite Or Attack?

Lots of people are injured by dog bites in St. Louis every year. Some of them opt to get legal advice, whereas others choose to handle the cases on their own. If you have been bitten by a dog, it can be hard to know what steps you should take. We’d like to help you figure it out.

Your Legal Options for a Dog Bite

There are a few different things you can do if you’ve been bitten by a dog. If the bite was minor, you may just want to come to an agreement with the owner. They may agree to pay your medical bills for you. If the owner is not being cooperative, it’s probably time for you to talk with an attorney about your options.

Your medical bills and any other compensation you are owed should be covered under the dog owner’s homeowners insurance policy. But it often takes working with a lawyer to get them to pay.
