If you or a loved one sustained injuries from a dog bite or animal attack, you deserve justice and compensation for your damages.

Not only do dog bites pose a high risk of infection and other complications, but animal attacks can cause the victim to experience significant emotional trauma, especially for children. In Utah, an animal’s owner generally has liability for damages related to animal bites and attacks.

Having an experienced Utah dog bite lawyer on your side can help you through this challenging experience. At the Symkoviak Law firm, our personal injury attorneys handle every aspect of your case, so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries and getting your life back on track.

 

Filing a Utah Dog Bite Claim

Under the Utah dog bite laws, animal owners are liable for any injuries that result from bites or attacks. But did you know that you might also have a valid claim if you were injured while trying to flee from or avoid an animal attack? For example, if you had a bicycle accident while trying to get away from a dog that was chasing you, you could still pursue a claim for your damages – even if the animal never reached you or bit you.

We begin by investigating your case and identifying all damages that you suffered, including both economic and non-economic damages. We obtain supporting documentation for each of your damages, to help us get every dollar you deserve.

You could be eligible to recover compensation for your medical treatment, lost income and benefits, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and more.

 

Utah Animal Attack Lawsuits

In most cases, our personal injury attorneys can successfully negotiate an animal attack settlement through the dog owner’s insurance company. This helps get your case resolved and a check in your hand as quickly as possible.

In some cases, however, if the insurance company will not negotiate in good faith or make a fair offer for settlement, we may recommend filing a lawsuit. Should that occur, our experienced litigators will be prepared to fight for you in court.

It is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately after a dog bit injury. This allows us to get started on your claim as soon as possible, before evidence disappears and witnesses’ memories begin to fade. And, thanks to the Utah statute of limitations, you only have two years from the date of injury to file a lawsuit. If you fail to take action in that time, you could lose your legal right to recover compensation.
