Consult a Personal Injury Attorney when Assistance Needed
Video Transcribed: Can you get compensation for being the victim of a dog bite? Hi everyone, Christopher Stevens here, a certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Office, specializing in personal injury in Oklahoma, and today we’re going to be talking about whether or not you can get compensation for being the victim of a dog bite.
Well in general a person has a duty to the public to make sure that their animal is not going to be a danger to those around them. Now in one instance, we had a client who was a patron at a restaurant that happened to be pet-friendly.
Another patron brought their dog with them and the dog was underneath his table and as our client was walking by the dog jumped out and bit our client.
Now, this dog had a history of violence, it had attacked multiple people, multiple other animals, so that owner had a duty to make sure that bringing his pet into the restaurant was not going to endanger those around him. And thankfully we were able to pursue a case on behalf of our client, helped get her justice for the injuries she received.
Now if you ever find yourself to be a victim of a similar circumstance in which you’re injured by someone else’s animal, feel free to reach out to us. We can be contacted at wirthlawoffice.com and makelaweasy.com if you need to speak with a Tulsa Dog Bite Attorney and as always, thanks and have a good one.
