Personal injury accidents happen every time due to negligence or human error. If you are attacked by a kept animal due to the negligence of the owner or the keeper of the animal, then you have a right to seek damages against the party at fault. It doesn’t matter what type of domestic pet or domesticated wild animal or creature attacked you, whether it be lizards, arachnids and even large wild cats and other wild animals. The only issues that you need to settle in claiming compensation against the party at fault are the following:
The fact that the animal attack actually happened;
The place where the accident happened;
The obligation of the other party in keeping the subject animal;
Failure of the other party to provide the required diligence in keeping the subject animal; and
The accident directly caused your personal injuries.
After providing proof of your right to file claim for animal attack damages, then your next obligations rest in proving the types of the damages you are claiming and the justification for the amounts of your claims. You can do this by providing the following supporting evidence:
Receipts of personal effects damaged during the animal attack;
Costs of medical treatments by way of medical records and bills;
Certification from employer of absences incurred due to treatments, if you are an employee; or
Contracts prior and after the accident if you own your business to show lost revenues due to the accident..
Knowing about the foregoing evidentiary matters, however, will amount to nothing if you will attempt to negotiate with the other party because you will surely be at a disadvantage on account of:
- 1. You are not familiar with tort laws;
- 2. You have no knowledge of the technical legal rules and evidence required to pursue your claim;
- 3. You will be faced by experienced insurance adjusters trained to deny your claims; and
- 4. You will also be faced with lawyers who are obviously qualified to protect their clients’ interests.
Always remember that injuries suffered in animal attacks can lead to serious injuries not limited to scar marks. In worst case scenarios, victims can even suffer permanent disability if not wrongful death. Hence, in case of injuries resulting from animal bites, you will definitely spend hundreds of thousands to millions depending on the medical treatments you need to undergo, which include: x-rays, CT scan and MRI, chiropractic treatments, orthopaedic evaluations, pain management consult and even surgeries and post-op care.
To make sure that you are successful in your claim, don’t try to claim directly against the other party because you will lose - you need to seek legal representation from aggressive animal attack lawyers in Los Angeles who can provide you with the maximum compensation you deserve for you and your family’s sake.
