Dog Bite Laws in Washington
Millions of Americans become victims of dog bites or attacks every year, many of which result in hospital visits. Washington law has strict liability for dog attacks, meaning if you didn’t provoke the animal and were not trespassing, the owner of the dog is liable for damages that results from the dog bite or attack. All that is needed is to prove that the dog bite was the cause of your injuries.
Sources of Compensation
Our dog bite lawyer in Edmond is well-versed in Washington personal injury law, insurance policies, and workers’ compensation benefits. We are experienced in collecting evidence to determine liability and advocating for our clients.
Depending on the situation, the dog owner’s homeowners’ insurance or workers’ compensation insurance, may cover your damages. Other sources of compensation may also be available.
