Richmond Dog Bite & Attack Lawyers

Richmond Dog Bites & Attacks – Personal Injury Lawyer

A dog bite is a devastating experience, especially when the victim is a small child. Victims of dog attacks face serious physical injuries, permanent scarring, and emotional trauma. Our Virginia dog bite lawyers represent innocent victims throughout Virginia — children, delivery drivers, postal workers, joggers, pedestrians, and anyone else attacked by a dog. Pet owners have an ironclad responsibility to ensure that their dogs cannot harm individuals, particularly if the dog is known to be vicious.

Things to Consider After an Attack

  • Seek medical attention immediately. You do not know whether or not the animal has been vaccinated against rabies. Even if they have, you are still at risk for infection if you were bitten or scratched.
  • Report the incident to the proper authorities as soon as possible. If you are injured you should call the police so they can get you the proper medical care you may need. It is also a good idea to report the incident to Richmond Animal Control so that they can conduct an investigation.
  • Gather as much information as possible from witnesses about the dog and the incident. Don’t forget to take photos of your injuries.
  • Contact an experienced dog bite lawyer.

Settlements and Compensation for Dog Bite Vicitms

  • Pain and suffering: This is the right to compensation for physical pain and suffering and mental anguish you have suffered and could possibly endure in the future.
  • Loss of Earnings: You are entitled to recover for the loss of earnings which you suffered from your injuries.
  • Future Loss of Earnings: If your injuries have prevented you from your ability to earn income in the future, you can recover damages for the value of the reduction in earning capacity with reasonable probability which will occur in the future.
  • Disfigurement: If the injury causes scarring or other unsightly marks, the victim is entitled to recovery for the disfigurement. Because these injuries are often in very visible places, victims are often very self-conscious of their appearance. Children are frequently bitten in the facial region and require plastic surgery.
  • Medical Bills: Dangers include any sort of medical expenses that a victim has had to pay for at a hospital, clinic, or to a pharmacy.
  • Wrongful Death of a Loved One
