Dog Bite Personal Injury Lawyer
Serving Minneapolis / St. Paul and Surrounding Areas
Dog bites are all too common. Pets are not always predictable and, with the rise in popularity of aggressive dog breeds, dog bites occur often. Under Minnesota’s strict liability laws, the owner of the dog is liable for your damages if you are attacked and injured. Knowing this, the insurance company for the owner of the dog almost invariably blames the victim for the attack. It does not matter if you know the dog owner personally or if the dog owner claims that they are sorry for the attack, their insurance company can still deny your claim and refuse to pay your medical bills and damages.
Puncture wounds and lacerations are common injuries of a dog bite and often result in stitches and scarring. If you are bitten, seek immediate medical attention. Be sure to take pictures of the wound and write down the owner’s name and their insurance information.
Navigating the legal maze to get your medical bills paid and receive a fair recovery for your injuries can be complicated. Having an experienced attorney by your side can ease the process.
If you, or a loved one, have been injured by a dog bite, contact the Joseph A. Larson Law Firm PLLC today. Your initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds on your behalf. You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the legal deadline, or the statute of limitations, expires.
