If you’ve been bitten by a dog, the first thing you should do is report it to the proper authorities. After that, you should speak to an attorney that has experience in dog bite cases. In most circumstances, you would be entitled to compensation from the owner of the dog, or from their insurance company.
If you’ve been damaged by a dog bite, under Washington law you’re entitled to compensation for any wages that you may lose, for all the medical bills from the treatment that are necessary, but also compensation for disfigurement or disability because of the dog bite.
Well, in Washington there are no free bites. That doesn’t mean that if you’re injured by a dog that has never bitten someone before that you can’t recover. You can recover.
