Personal Injury-Dog Bite Law
Personal injury claims are claims for damages arising from the wrongful conduct of others. These claims typically include claims for tangible losses such as lost wages, a loss of future income, medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation expenses, maintenance and cure, substitute services and may include punitive damages. In a personal injury claim, you may also receive compensation for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and loss of love and affection.
Every type of claim, including personal injury suits, have a deadline for filing the claim in court. The deadline is different in every state. The deadline is known as the "Statute of Limitations". After the expiration of this time period, the claim will, almost always, be lost or waived, regardless of its merits. There are various exceptions to the deadlines. Among them are incapacitation, the injury happened to a minority, or the injury happened to an incompetent person. There are also other exceptions. Therefore, even if the incident occurred years ago, it may still be worth evaluating a claim even though the deadline has expired. Some jurisdictions have a deadline for filing claims as short as 30 days. This is especially important when a government entity is involved. In order to avoid missing the deadline for filing a personal injury claim, you should consult an attorney immediately after an incident.
If you have been involved in an accident of any kind which you believe was the fault of another, preservation of the evidence is a great concern. Obtaining the name, address, phone number of eye witnesses is of upmost importance. Take photographs and videotapes of the accident scene, vehicles or defective conditions involved, and your physical injuries as well as the injuries of others. Filing an accident report with the police, or property owners, where applicable is also highly recommended. In motor vehicle accident situations, obtain the other driver’s license plate number, license number and insurance company. Then contact an attorney in your area.
Animal Attack Liability and Dog Bite Claims
Law suits based on an animal attack and/or dog bites are generally subject to a two-year statute of limitations. These claims most frequently arise from an unexpected attack by a dog on a person, frequently on a child. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that each year, dog bites are responsible for 4.7 million injuries. More than 750,000 dog bite injuries require medical attention and nearly 334,000 emergency room visits per year. This translates to 914 people being attacked by a dog somewhere in the US every day.
