Were You Attacked by an Animal in West Virginia?

Dog bites and other dog attacks can result in serious physical and emotional injuries, and even death. Victims of attacks may suffer severe facial disfigurement or scarring from puncture wounds or lacerations, and many victims suffer from long-term fear of dogs following the attack. In addition, extensive medical treatment, such as plastic surgery, may be necessary to prevent infection or scarring.

When a dog attacks an individual, certain factors are considered to determine if the dog owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries:

  • No previous attacks: If the dog has not been branded as a vicious dog (resulting from prior dog bite attacks), one must usually prove that the dog owner was acting negligently in order to pursue liability.
  • No previous attacks and running loose: If the dog is running loose on the sidewalks, in a park, or anywhere else outside the owner’s property and injures someone, the homeowner is automatically responsible for any injuries that result because the homeowner violated leash laws.
  • Previous attacks: When a previous incident of a dog attack has been reported regarding the dog, the property owner may be held liable for injuries that occurred as a result.

Our attorneys have comprehensive understanding of the laws. We know how to effectively analyze the facts, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the case to determine if our client has a valid claim for recovery.

Usually, if a dog owner is found to be liable, compensation will be recovered from the dog owner’s homeowner’s policy. As experienced injury attorneys, we strive to recover full compensation for our client’s medical bills as well as for counseling to treat any emotional scarring that resulted from the animal attack.
