Let Us Help If You Are Medically Treated After a Dog Attack

Our Dog Bite Injury Attorneys in Burnsville Can Help You Seek Money for Your Medical Bills

Dog bites can cause health problems for victims in a few different ways. The initial bite can leave you with puncture wounds or significant bleeding. Your skin and muscles may tear from the dog’s teeth or claws, leaving a ragged wound difficult to fix with stitches. Finally, a large dog who attacks you could knock you down, leading to broken bone injuries or torn tendons and ligaments.

The aftermath of the attack is a dangerous time, too. If you do not seek immediate medical care from a doctor, you could have an infection a few days after the bite. According to St. Paul Animal Field Services, proper wound care is vital to giving you the best chance of recovering from the dog bite without dealing with unwanted complications. Sometimes, an infection could harm your ability to recover quickly, leaving you battling a long illness.

If the dog who bit you did not have the proper vaccinations, it’s possible that you could receive exposure to rabies. Treatment for this disease can be lengthy and painful, causing significant hardship for you. Such treatments can be costly, too, but you should not have to sacrifice your long-term health because of concerns over the price of the medical care you need. Our Burnsville dog bite lawyers will fight for you to receive the money you need to pay for your medical care.

Our Burnsville Dog Bite Lawyers Know That Dog Bites Are More Common Than Most People Think

According to DogsBite.org, nearly 1,000 people in the U.S. require emergency care per day due to dog bites. Over 12,000 of those people end up being hospitalized. This means that Americans are spending millions of dollars per year paying for the treatment of dog bite injuries.

If you are one of those people, our Burnsville dog bite lawyers can help you recover that money from the dog’s owner.

Our Dog Bite Injury Lawyers in Burnsville, MN, Can Put You at Ease About Seeking Money for Your Injuries

Sometimes, a client who comes to our dog bite injury lawyers in Burnsville, MN, for help after being the victim of a dog attack admits to hesitating before contacting us. We hear many different reasons as to why someone waited to seek our help in trying for a monetary settlement, including the following.

  • Unsure who’s to blame: When a dog bites you, you clearly cannot sue the dog for recovery of your medical bills, lost wages, suffering, and pain. Finding the owner of the dog may be more than you can handle while you are battling your injuries. Our Burnsville dog bite lawyers can investigate the case to find the owner or other negligent party.
  • Unsure if the dog owner has insurance: Some clients believe they cannot sue a dog owner because the owner likely doesn’t have pet insurance. Actually, if the dog owner has a homeowner’s policy or a renter’s policy, this insurance policy likely covers any lawsuits from a dog bite, too.
  • Don’t want to fight insurers: The truth is that insurance companies hate paying damages to victims of any kind of accident, including dog bites. If the insurance company contacts you after the attack and makes it clear that it will fight your claim, you may just want to forget the whole thing. Trust that we will fight hard for you, giving you time to recover.
  • Don’t want to blame the dog: Seeking a monetary claim from the negligent owner of a dog doesn’t necessarily cause additional trouble for the dog. Law enforcement officers will work inside the legal system to determine what happens to the dog, completely separate from your lawsuit. Once a dog attacks you and leaves you with injuries, police, and the courts handle the fate of the dog. Your case only focuses on receiving money for your injuries.
  • Don’t want to go to trial: At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, our team will attempt to reach a fair settlement with the insurance company regarding your injuries. Most cases like this settle without going to trial. However, if the insurer is treating you unfairly, we are always willing to fight for you at a trial. Our reputation as strong litigators is well-known in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
  • Didn’t realize the severity of the injuries: Immediately after the dog bite, you may believe you have minor injuries that don’t rise to the level of filing a lawsuit. However, as the days pass, you realize you have a long recovery ahead of you. You can call our team several days, weeks, or months after the attack if you want to speak with us about your case.

FAQs About Dog Bite Injuries

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Burnsville Dog Bite Lawyers

Before you speak with our dog bite injury attorneys in Burnsville, you want to be as informed as possible. At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we try to answer your dog bite questions before you ask them.

Who will pay for my medical bills resulting from a dog bite injury?

Usually, your medical bills will be paid for by the renter’s or homeowner’s insurance of the owner of the dog that bit you. (This should even apply if your own dog bit you, though your insurance company might require specific dog bite insurance.) Our dog bite injury attorneys in Burnsville will help you determine who is responsible for paying your medical expenses.

Can I make a claim for injuries suffered even if the dog didn’t bite me?

A dog doesn’t have to bite you to hurt you. For example, if a dog attempts to attack you and you slip and fall and suffer a spinal injury, you are just as eligible for damages as you would be if the dog bit you. The dog bite injury lawyers in Burnsville from the law firm of Tyroler Leonard Injury Law will examine your case and help you make a claim for any injuries caused by a dog, whether the dog bit you or not.

What if I need future scar revision surgery?

When we seek damages for our clients, we aren’t just seeking damages for current medical bills. We seek damages for future medical bills as well. Our Burnsville dog bite lawyers are familiar with the long-term effect of scars and the costs that are usually required to treat those scars in the future. When we negotiate for a settlement, we will include those costs as part of our negotiations.

Am I eligible to receive damages from the owner of the dog?

Minnesota law (and Wisconsin law) allows you to claim damages from a dog owner as long as you didn’t provoke the dog or trespass on their property. A dog owner might try to claim that you provoked the dog to avoid paying compensation for an injury they are liable for. Our dog bite injury lawyers in Burnsville, MN, will present evidence that you didn’t provoke the dog, making the dog owner responsible for your injuries.

How long can I wait before making a claim for my dog bite injury?

Normally, you may wait up to six years after a dog bite injures you to make a claim under Minnesota statute (or three years in Wisconsin). In any case, our Burnsville dog bite injury lawyers recommend that you file all injury claims as soon as possible. You are much more likely to win your case and get the money you deserve if you file promptly.

How much money can your Burnsville dog bite lawyers help me receive from my Minnesota dog bite claim?

The amount of money you will receive can vary based on several factors. The most important factor is how high your expenses are, including lost income, pain, and emotional distress. But your compensation can also be affected by how long you take to file your claim and whether you have our Burnsville dog bite lawyers representing you. If you file late or don’t retain legal representation, you are less likely to receive all the money you are owed.

If these responses failed to answer your specific question about a dog bite case, feel free to ask us for more information. We are available 24 hours a day to help our clients with dog bite claims in Burnsville.

Don’t Wait to Contact Our Burnsville Dog Bite Lawyers

Even A Small Delay Can Prevent You From Getting Compensation

As the old phrase goes, time is money. This is accurate when recovering money from an insurance company for a dog bite injury. Every day you wait to contact our law firm could cost you money.

You will want to hire representation quickly if a dog bite or attack has injured you. Our team will collect evidence from the incident and help you contact a doctor to get the necessary treatment. This is important for ensuring you get paid for your injuries.

The memory of witnesses fades, and physical evidence like camera footage might be lost if it isn’t intentionally reserved. We will collect and preserve all evidence critical to your case, including getting the contact information for the owner of the dog. If you don’t think to collect that at the scene, the owner could easily disappear, giving you no way to collect your damages.

It is equally important to receive medical attention quickly. The longer you wait to receive medical attention, the harder it may be to prove that the dog was responsible for your medical costs. Additionally, if the injury worsens because you waited, you may not be able to receive compensation.

Speed is of the essence when responding to a dog bite injury case, but so is care. Our dog bite injury attorneys in Burnsville from Tyroler Leonard Injury Law will act quickly and properly. We know how important it is for our clients to make all the right moves early so they can collect as much money as possible when damages are paid.
