Dog Bites Attorney in Valparaiso
Personal Injury Attorney in Valparaiso, IN
If a dog has caused you or a loved one injury from a bite, or damaged your property, you should be aware that the dog owner is fully liable in most cases. There’s no reason why you or anyone else should suffer as a result of a careless or negligent owner’s actions, and the law in Indiana was written to reflect this. If you have suffered injury or damage to property due to a dog bite or other negligent behavior by a pet owner, David R. Phillips can help you.
David R. Phillips has been assisting his clients with a variety of personal injury matters, including dog bites and other incidents involving negligent or reckless pet owners. He understands that a personal injury stemming from a dog bite can have serious financial and physical, as well as emotional, consequences, which is why he strives to fight for their cause.
Depending on the facts of the case, an owner can be found to be liable for a dog bite if:
- The owner failed to restrain the dog
- The owner was aware of previous aggressive tendencies or behavior
- The owner failed to adequately vaccinate his dog
- Another animal was injured as a result of the dog bite
Even in clear cut cases where the owner was directly liable, the opposing party could push back and place the burden of proof upon you. This is where the assistance of a skilled personal injury attorney becomes critical.
