Rapid City Dog Bite Attorneys

Call (605) 250-3003 for Caring Representation

Most dog owners are responsible pet owners who warn others about irritable dogs or keep their dog chained when necessary. Sadly, not every dog owner is as responsible as others. When dog owners fail to train or restrain their dogs or look out for the safety of others, it can turn into a gruesome situation. All dogs can be unpredictable and even small dogs can do significant damage when they attack. At Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, we can help if you or a loved one were hurt by a dog bite.

Give us a call at (605) 250-3003 to discuss your legal options.

Holding Dog Owners Responsible for Dog Bites

When dogs are not properly supervised or restrained, especially around children, they may become bad-tempered or confused. Confused and angry dogs may not be able to be controlled by their owner. Dog owners should be held responsible for not taking the proper precautions to protect others from their dogs. When a dog attacks, it can cause puncture wounds, severe infections, torn cartilage or muscle, and even emotional issues as a result of the trauma.

If you have been bitten by a dog, you should immediately:

  • Seek medical care to have the injury treated immediately
  • Call Animal Control and report the incident
  • Take photos of your injuries
  • Get witness contact information
  • Speak with a caring and skilled Rapid City personal injury lawyer

Why Hire a Rapid City Dog Bite Lawyer?

In most cases, dog bite claims are paid out by the responsible dog owner's homeowner's insurance policy. As a result, you may get a call from an insurance adjuster who offers you a settlement and says you don't need a Rapid City dog bite lawyer. They don't have your interests in mind and are simply looking out for their company's interests. At Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, we understand what you are going through and want to help you receive the fair compensation you deserve. Let us take care of the negotiations while you focus on healing.

Let us help you pursue fair compensation in Pennington County and the surrounding areas. Call us today at (605) 250-3003.
