Experienced Washington DC and Maryland Dog Bite Lawyer – Attorney Walter E. Laake, Jr.


Maryland Dog Bite Lawyer

Dogs are said to be man’s best friend, but that is not always the case.  Some dogs are vicious by nature.  Certain breeds are bred to be fierce and so can bring harm to human beings.  Other dogs are trained to be vicious and to protect their surroundings.  And some dogs simply become angry or agitated at times and can bring about injuries when they have never done so in the past.  If you have had a nasty run in with a canine, it is time to call your Maryland dog bite lawyer in order to be best represented to pursue responsibility for your injury and receive adequate compensation to make you whole.

When dog bite occurs, your first objective is to be evaluated by a qualified health care professional.  They will assess the extent of your injuries and help to determine any immediate treatments that you may need as well as any ongoing treatments that may be necessary in the future.  Ensure that each step of this process is well documented as your Maryland dog bite lawyer will need the information to work on your case.  After you have been assessed by a health care professional, you will need to ensure that the dog is also assessed by qualified professionals who will determine if it is necessary to quarantine the animal or even to put it to sleep.

Determining ownership of the animal is extremely important.  A dog owner is responsible for the actions of their pets, whether those actions are taken deliberately or simply through negligent care and not keeping animals away from those who they can harm.  Your Maryland dog bite lawyer will help you to build a case against the responsible party so that appropriate actions can be taken in order to prevent future occurrences and also to recover adequate compensation.
