No one likes being bitten by a dog. It causes physical injury, it usually results in permanent scarring, and let’s be honest- it’s scary. Yet, for some reason, sometimes people are hesitant to hire an attorney after being bitten by a dog. Maybe the dog’s owner is a friend or neighbor and people get nervous that it will hurt the relationship? Utah law is very clear that we are all responsible to prevent out dogs from biting people no matter what. We are automatically responsible if and when our dogs hurt someone. Luckily, homeowners insurance covers the medical bills and more for these dog bite victims. Problem is, we will never get taken care of properly by insurance unless we hire attorneys to track down the homeowners insurance and handle the claim properly.
You are a human being, and your injury is worth a lot more under Utah law than just mere reimbursement of the medical bills. Give us a call. The dog bite lawyers at McMullin Legal Group can help.
