If you were bitten by a dog, you may have significant medical bills that need to be covered. However, you may be unsure of what steps to take to get the owner of the dog to pay for those bills. Even if the dog belonged to a friend or family member, you don’t deserve to foot the bill for your injuries that their animal caused.
In most cases, the home owner’s insurance company of the pet owner will pay for dog bites and other animal incidents. You can make a claim through the insurance company and submit your bills for payment. However, the insurance company may deny your claim. A Jefferson Parish personal injury lawyer can guide you through the process and fight for your right to recover compensation after a dog bit.
If you suffered an injury due to the negligent or reckless actions of a medical provider, then you may have a medical malpractice claim.
