A dog bite is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about what types of injuries you can get from an animal. However, the scope of how you can be injured from animals is quite broad. From being knocked to the ground, to being chased or even having an animal run in front of your vehicle, injuries can occur in various ways.
Regardless of how the injury occurs, the aftermath can be devastating. Permanent scarring or disfigurement and the need for corrective surgery are only some of the devastating effects animal injuries can cause. As medical bills accumulate, or time passes with the daily reminder of what happened, injured victims often become frustrated or fearful of similar types of animals.

Quick FAQs About
INJURIES FROM ANIMALS
Q: I know who owns the animal or a report was written identifying the animal and owner, so this is an easy claim, right?A: Not necessarily. Oftentimes, animal owners will assert the victim did something to provoke the animal to cause it to act in an aggressive manner. Due to this, an investigation needs to begin immediately as to how the incident occurred.

Q: The animal’s owner admits they were wrong, what next?A: An attorney needs to be contacted to determine the availability of any potential insurance.

Q: How are my medical bills paid for if there is no medical payment coverage?A: You or your health insurer will be initially responsible for any medical treatment received because of injuries from an animal. There also may be additional parties responsible for your injuries than you are aware of. If you obtain money from the party responsible for your injury, you will be responsible for paying back your medical bills and amounts owed.
Q: I have been contacted by someone where I was injured. Should I talk to them?A: Not without representation. Oftentimes, where you were injured will have insurance and it is for reasons of insurance you are being contacted. Remember, insurance companies do not represent you. They have their own concerns and considerations and will work to protect them. While insurance companies have great advertising, their business model is based on not paying claims or paying less than full value for claims.
Speaking to the insurance company without an attorney, you risk being taken advantage of or negatively affecting your claim.
