After a Dog Bite
If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog, we recommend:
- Seeking medical attention as quickly as possible.
- Getting as much information as you can about the dog and its owner.
- When safe and possible, taking pictures of the dog, the scene, your injuries, your clothing, and other relevant details.
- Filing a report with your local police department and animal control office.
- Contacting an attorney.
Recovering fair compensation after a dog bite can be difficult. The defense will often argue comparative fault or attempt to refute the nature and extent of injuries. They will try to offer an unfairly low settlement or may run into issues where your valid claim is denied. A Kansas City dog bite attorney can assert your rights to help you pursue the full and complete monetary damages to which you are entitled.
