If you’ve been hurt by an animal, whether it was someone else’s pet, livestock, or some sort of work animal, you may have a claim for personal injury damages.
These damages can include compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, scarring, and future damages for all of those as well.
While dog bites and attacks are certainly the most common type of personal injury claim from animals, many other animals have been the source of claims for personal injuries.
If you’ve been hurt, of course you need to get medical attention. One of the main problems from animal bites is infection, so seek help. If you have health insurance, use it to pay for your treatment. You also need to determine who owned the animal.
Animals like horses and other livestock have special statutes that apply to injuries and damages from them, so it’s important to consult a lawyer to fully understand your rights.
If someone’s pet has injured you, it’s critical to find out as quickly as possible whether that person has any insurance that would cover the event.
