Of course you will. I’m a lover not a biter. In fact, I’m a trained therapy dog, so being around me is always good medicine. But if you’re not comfortable with me being there, feel free to request that someone take me for a run while you’re at the office. I’m working on my physique anyway and I love to get out.
The owners may be protected by posting the sign, but it really comes down to the particulars of your case. I would advise you to get in touch with my owners at Helland Law Group. They’re good people and good attorneys. They can help you determine whether you have a strong case or not.
Yes. Tacoma, like most cities, has leash laws. If you were bitten by an off-leash dog in a city with a leash law, it can substantially increase the penalty paid out.
It’s your call. You can report dog bites to your local police department or to the relevant animal control agency in your town. Filing a report can help establish the facts in a dog bite lawsuit. Tacoma citizens can call: (253) 627-7387 (animal control) or Tacoma Police department’s non-emergency number (253) 594-7800. Obviously, if you’re experiencing an emergency right now, get off the internet and call 911.
