Types of Damages in a Dog Bite Case
A person who owns a dog must take precautions to protect themselves against injuries caused by dogs. If a dog bites you, it is important to know what damage might occur and how much compensation you could receive.
Compensatory damages are generally awarded in dog bite injury cases. These damages compensate victims for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other losses resulting from the attack. Compensatory damages typically do not include punitive damages.
In general, punitive damages are rarely awarded in dog bite cases because there is no evidence that the owner knew about the dangerous nature of their dog. However, punitive damages are allowed in certain circumstances and in some states. For example, if the owner had been warned about the danger posed by their dog, punitive damages could be appropriate.
In addition, you may pursue these damages for the following damages:
- Medical bills: Costs of treatment or medical care related to the injury.
- Property damage: Any form of property that was destroyed during the attack, such as a phone or eyeglasses.
- Lost income: Any income lost while you were unable to work.
- Pain and suffering: The extent of emotional trauma and physical pain suffered during and after the dog attack.
- Loss of enjoyment of life: Loss of enjoyment of life due to the dog bite or mauling.
- Attorney fees: Attorney fees are usually awarded to the prevailing party in a civil action.
Because no statute in Kentucky restricts the amount of money that can be awarded for damages, there is no limit on how much money you could get.
However, compensation may be lowered if it is determined that the victim was partially at fault for the incident.
Dog Bite Liability is Different in Each State
When you’re the victim of a dog attack, finding an experienced dog bite attorney is crucial. Dog bite law is complicated and varies from state to state. At Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, our experienced personal injury attorneys have successfully represented dog bite victims in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio.
We have recovered over $1 billion in damages for personal injury victims in Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio.
Our Experienced Dog Bite Lawyers Handle the Most Severe Cases
A dog bite occurs every 75 seconds in the US, resulting in 1,000 trips to the emergency room daily. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the cost of treating dog bites has skyrocketed, going from $44,760 in 2019 to $50,245 in 2020. This number represents a significant increase over previous years.
Often, the condition escalates beyond a deep puncture wound, leading to an infection, significant surgery, or even death due to the dog bite. In cases where hospitalization is necessary, patients typically spend three nights there.
If surgery or numerous surgeries are necessary, the associated expenditures may be prohibitive. You need the support of an experienced law practice with a reputation for total devotion to victims due to the high emotional and financial stakes involved in this case.
“The Hammer” Handles Lawsuits for Dog Mauling
As seen in our TV ads, Daryl Isaacs is known as “The Hammer.” He has no fear of taking on dog bite injury claims. He is aware of the life-and-death situations created by such negligence.
For example, a Dogbites.org study found Pit Bulls mauled to death 284 Americans from 2005 to 2017. Pit bull attacks accounted for 66% of dog mauling deaths.
Legal issues involving dogs and owners require a professional dog bite law firm such as Isaacs & Isaacs. Medical and associated costs must be fought by experienced attorneys who understand the nuances of dog bite and mauling laws in the states where they practice law.
The Hammer is well aware of the financial toll dog attacks, and related issues have on the insurance industry and, therefore, the economy. One in three homeowner’s insurance claims is related to dog bites, costing $530 million in 2014.
When navigating the legal issues arising from dog bites and maulings, experience is essential. Our personal injury law firm maintains a team dedicated solely to dog-related cases. Considering medical expenses for dog bites have increased a staggering 67% from 2003 to 2014, this attention is well founded.
