Protecting Dog Bite Victims In Minnesota

You can never be sure what an encounter with a dog will bring. Will you get a bark, a kiss or a bite? That uncertainty is why it is crucial for those who know their dog best to take steps to protect the public. Failure to do so can result in puncture wounds, infections, nerve damage and other injuries when an unruly pet attacks.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in an animal attack in Minnesota, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer to assert your rights. A successful dog bite claim can provide you with the financial compensation you deserve for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other damages.

We Are Here For You After A Dog Bite

At Nicolet Law Office, S.C., our personal injury lawyers assert the rights of injury survivors throughout Minnesota. We understand how to navigate the legal system in order to hold negligent animal owners accountable and make sure bite victims have the financial means necessary to be made whole after a vicious attack. We have experience obtaining results for people in a wide range of circumstances and have office locations in Woodbury, Minneapolis, Duluth and Hibbing.

Who Pays For A Dog Bite?

It’s common for people – especially children – to be hurt by the dog of a friend, loved one or neighbor. It’s tragic for all involved, and many victims hesitate to pursue legal action because they don’t want someone they care about to suffer financial harm. It is important to realize that these claims are typically paid for by a dog owner’s homeowners insurance policy, not out of their own pocket. You do not have to bear the burden of a dog attack injury to protect the dog owner.

Incidents like this are why people carry insurance, and there is no reason to feel guilty for using it to cover the financial costs of:

  • Medical treatment for your injuries
  • Reconstructive facial surgeries
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Mental health treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Beyond Bites

Not all animal-related injuries are the result of bites. A personal injury claim can be made anytime someone’s pet causes an injury, including incidents like a dog running into the street and causing a motor vehicle accident, or a dog startling someone into a slip-and-fall accident.

We Will Help Make Things Right

Our firm handles dog bite and animal attack claims on a contingency fee basis. That means we do not charge a fee unless we collect compensation for you. Call 866-663-8774 or contact us online today to schedule a free case evaluation at one of our four Minnesota locations (Woodbury, Minneapolis, Duluth and Hibbing).
