Did a Dog Bite You?

If you were bitten by a dog there are laws in place to help you. Dog bite laws are a mixture of city and county ordinances and state law that establishes when the dog’s owner is liable to the bite victim. A few states use the “one bite rule,” which shields the dog’s owner from liability in that one incident, unless the owner knew the dog bites. These laws establish proper control of the dog and when the dog’s owner is liable to the bite victim.

Learn Your Rights Regarding Dog Bite

Most states are strict liability jurisdictions, meaning the dog’s owner or controller is liable to the victim unless the dog owner has a valid defense. Find out if you are entitled to compensation by talking to a Trussville dog bite attorney.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

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 to Find the Right Attorney

  • Determine the area of law that relates to your issue. Attorneys specialize in specific practice areas around legal issues within the broad field of law.
  • Seek out recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. A successful attorney or practice will typically have many satisfied clients.
  • Set up consultation appointments to get a better understanding of your case as well as gauge your comfort level with different attorneys. Find the attorney who is the right fit for your needs.
