Dog Bite Lawyers in Bloomington

Understanding Your Legal Options

There are few things more frightening than being bitten by a dog. Often, these attacks are sudden, unexpected, and physically and emotionally devastating. When a child is bitten by a dog, injuries can be even more catastrophic and the long-term emotional consequences more severe.

At Bunger & Robertson, we believe that negligent dog owners should be held accountable for their pets. If you or a loved one was injured by a dog, contact our Bloomington dog bite attorneys as soon as possible. With our in-depth understanding of this complicated area of law, we can help you understand your rights and legal options. We work hard to help our clients recover the full, fair compensation they are owed for the damages they have suffered.

Learn more about how our firm can help you when you call us at (812) 359-0196 or contact us online.

Generally speaking, there are three defenses a dog owner may claim when their dog injures someone else:

  • Trespassing: The dog bit or injured a person who was illegally trespassing on private property.
  • Provocation: The injured person teased, hurt, or otherwise provoked the dog before the attack.
  • Dangerous Propensity: The dog owner was unaware that his or her dog was dangerous. An investigation into the dog's bite and behavior history is important in establishing that a dog owner was aware or should have been aware of their dog's potential danger.

In just about all other instances, the dog owner can be held accountable for injuries his or her dog caused. For instance, if you were walking in a public park and someone else’s dog ran up to you, tripped you, bit you, or attacked you, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim. This is just one example. A Bloomington dog bite attorney with specific experience in this particular area will be able to examine every aspect of your situation and determine how best to proceed.
