Dog Bite Injury Case
How To Determine if You Have a Good Dog Bite Injury Case
Watch the following educational legal video on determining good dog bite injury cases by one of our experienced personal Injury attorneys in Buffalo, Daniel J. Chiacchia.
A viable dog bite case is one in which it is possible to prove that the dog has demonstrated at least some vicious propensities. It’s even more helpful if the dog also looks vicious. That visual image tends to help the bite victim’s case. I believe it has much more jury appeal when, instead of a little toy poodle that rips into someone’s face, the dog involved is a Rottweiler or a pit bull.
When it comes to setting up the liability for your case, it’s important to be able to show that you, as the client, did nothing wrong that could have caused that dog to act the way it did. In other words, you were just minding your own business, or you just reached down to pet the dog, and the dog attacked you. Showing those two things – the dog’s propensity for viciousness and that you didn’t do anything wrong – are a couple of important factors that we look for when going forward with a dog bite case.
If you have been bitten by dog or any animal, seek medical attention, and ask the owner for their and their pets’ information, then contact one of our personal Injury attorneys in Buffalo at Chiacchia & Fleming, LLP for your just compensation.
