In a dog attack, the dog owner ultimately has the liability for the attack. This is because dog owners are responsible for their pets.
However, there is much more to consider in a dog attack case then who has liability. Many times, the discussion does not stop with who is liable, it continues onto who is responsible, and ultimately who can compensate you for your damages.
Answers to these important questions require a lawyer to investigate the case and identify all potential sources of compensation. This can often require open records requests and information that can only be obtained by a lawyer through the legal discovery process. This is why it is vital that you contact a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in a dog attack. Funk and Associates is available to discuss your potential case today.
