BIRMINGHAM DOG BITE LAWYERS
It is hard to imagine “man’s bests friend” as posing a threat to our community. A dog attack is a traumatic event for individuals who are injured by sharp teeth and claws. The emotional damage can more often trump a victim’s physical injuries.
The physical injuries victims sustain can lead to scars that they will have to live with for the remainder of their life. As with any injury, the medical bills associated with these types of incidents can leave families in a financial situation if the victim does not pursue a case against the negligent dog owner. Our experienced Birmingham personal injury attorneys more often see that the general public is not aware that the liable owner’s insurance policy will more than likely pay for damages caused by the animal.
Strict liability exists in the state of Alabama in regards to dog attacks. As long as the incident occurred on the dog owner’s property or the dog chased the victim off of the owner’s property, then the owner will be held liable for injuries and damages caused by their animal. Proving negligence becomes a bit trickier if the incident occurred off of the dog owner’s property; the victim will need to show that the actions of the owner were negligent and it was the owner’s conduct that directly caused the victim’s injuries.
