Determining Liability After Dog Bites

Dog bite claims can be extremely complex. Sorting out issues like determining liability, understanding insurance policies, and recovering any lost wages resulting from your injuries can be difficult to do on your own. An experienced dog bite lawyer can explain all you need to know about building a strong claim.

Washington is a “strict liability” state. This means that as long as you or the person injured in the dog attack did not provoke the animal, nor were you trespassing on someone else’s property, then the dog owner is liable for any damages caused by the dog’s bites. All you need to determine this liability is proof that the dog bite did indeed cause you injuries.

Since most dog bites occur in the home of a friend, neighbor, or family member, many dog bite victims are hesitant to pursue an insurance claim. We get it. Nobody wants to sue a friend. What most people don’t know is that in the state of Washington, the dog bite owner’s homeowners insurance policy is what will compensate you for your injuries and losses. Thankfully, homeowners insurance generally covers any dog bite by the policy holder’s dog. Getting an insurance company to cover these types of claims usually isn’t the problem.

Our dog bite injury lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to help you determine who is liable and exactly what insurance coverage applies for your particular dog bite attack.
