Were you attacked or injured by an animal at someone else’s residence or place of business such as a zoo, farm, or animal shelter?
Were you unaware that the animal in question posed a danger?
Were you not given adequate warning of any potential aggressiveness on the animal’s behalf by its owner, a landlord, tenant, or staff member?
In most cases, injuries caused by dogs or other common household pets that occur on the owner’s property – including their automobile – are covered by the owner's homeowner's or car insurance policies.
The same applies to businesses.
Whether or not the animal’s owner has insurance that covers animal bites, you’re entitled to file a legal claim against the owner.
Legal claims are typically filed to recover for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damages or any other damages that may apply, bearing in mind that the responsible party was not merely negligent, but was actually reckless or intentionally incited the injury.
