When not properly trained, aggressive dogs can cause unexpected and sometimes significant injury to people. This usually ends up with the victim needing immediate medical assistance, which can cost a significant amount should the dog have a disease like rabies. It’s also possible that long-term psychological trauma can also affect the person bitten, causing unwanted mental anguish that can last a lifetime.
While laws related to animal violence and dog bites differ depending on the state, many of these laws place the responsibility on the dog’s owner. There are also strict regulations regarding the collaring, registration and vaccination of the animal. It is important for owners to be aware of these laws and be held accountable for any possible harmful incidents that their pets might cause to others.
There are some cases of dog bites that can be more complicated than others. When the dog belongs to a friend or a family member, it might be difficult to determine whether or not it might be prudent to sue the dog owner for money to cover any medical expenses. While the owner’s insurance can cover this in many cases, it does not mean that the victim will immediately receive the compensation. The best course of action may be to seek legal advice on how to best handle this type of liability case.
