(Redmond/Personal Injury) Fido's Revenge: Dog Bites in Washington

Canis Lupis Familiaris, also known as man's best friend; the domestic dog has been a part of human life for centuries. In most cases, these cute and cuddly housemates provide a level of friendship and uncompromising love that some will never experience from another living animal. Unfortunately, under some circumstances, these friendly mammals can turn fearsome and cause severe Personal Injury.

In Washington State, if you are bitten by a dog, the owner is strictly liable for all of your damages, unless you were trespassing on the dog owner's property or you provoked the animal. Washington's dog bite law is as favorable as it gets toward the victims of these bites. This means that the opposing owner (or their insurance company) will reimburse you for your medical costs, wage loss, and the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of Fido's transgression against you.

When most people think about dog bites, they think about dogs, such as Pit Bulls, which are usually characterized (sometimes improperly so) as vicious, angry, or violent. In fact, many of the dog bite cases we see stem from friendly dogs or loveable puppies that make a troubling mistake. In many cases, the dog in question is as small as a Jack Russell Terrier or Chihuahua. If Fido has mistakenly attacked your leg thinking it was a chew toy, or if the neighborhood bully got out of its kennel and attacked, at Magnuson Lowell, P.S. we have the know-how to compensate your for Personal Injury.
