Contrary to popular belief, no dog in Washington is allowed a “free bite.” Dog owners have a duty to control their pet and are responsible for the actions of their pet. However, a victim’s ability to recover may be limited or barred if they provoke the animal or are trespassing.
If you have been bitten by a dog it is best to speak with an experienced Washington personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident to determine what rights and legal options may be available to you.
If you have been seriously injured due to a dog bite, or have a loved one that has been killed as the result of such actions, you may be entitled to recover medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other monetary compensation for your injuries and loss.
