After an attack, the first thing you should do is seek medical treatment. Next, you should talk with a seasoned injury attorney. When you enlist the assistance of one of our Rhode Island dog bites lawyers, we can help with the investigation and ensure proper evidence is gathered for your claim.

Can I File a Lawsuit Over a Dog Bite in RI?

In many cases, the answer is yes. Dog bites are serious issues and the legal system does not take such incidents lightly. Even bites from small dogs are no trivial matter, as they can result in infection, puncture muscles, and cause external scarring. A dog’s owner is responsible for the actions of their animal and their homeowner’s insurance should cover damages.

After a dog bite you can recover damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Emotional Distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium

Be aware that if you decide to move ahead with a lawsuit, you will likely face a big insurance company, not the dog owner. Insurance companies are the ones who will have to pay, and they will do all in their power to minimize your claim. Our experienced team of dog bite lawyers know the strategies these companies use and you will want them on your side during this time.
