Has an Animal Attacked You?

Animal attacks by domesticated or dangerous animals kept as pets, which can be severe and even life threatening, are a patchwork of city and county ordinances and state law assigning liability to the animal’s owner for the injuries sustained. In some cases, criminal law may also apply.

Animal Attack Legal Recourse

Most states are strict liability jurisdictions, meaning the person who owns or controls the animal is liable to the victim unless the animal’s owner has a valid defense, such as a third party let the animal loose without the owner’s knowledge or consent. A Fort Mitchell animal attack attorney can advise you if you are entitled to compensation.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
