Injured by a dog bite? We can help you get compensation.
Dog bites are a serious issue. In the United States alone, 850,000 victims annually receive medical treatment for an injury received from being bitten by a dog. In addition, there are between 30 to 35 fatal dog attacks per year. Many victims of dog bites are children.
Despite these disturbing facts, only one-third of those suffering a dog bite ever receive compensation for their injuries.
Under Washington State law, there is strict liability for the owner of any dog that, without provocation, bites a person who is lawfully in a public or private place. If you have been injured from such an attack, call Maurer Law to discuss your claim.
It is important to note that in Washington the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is three (3) years from the date of injury. If you have not settled your claim or filed suit within the three (3) year time frame, you will be forever barred from recovering any damages from this claim.
