Do You Need a Utah Dog Bite Lawyer?
Injuries from dog bites can be very serious and damaging to victims. This is especially true if it is a child who has been injured. Dog bites often result in not only physical damages but also emotional harm. It is important that if you, your children, or a loved one have suffered injuries from a dog attack, such as a pit bull, that you seek an experienced injury lawyer to represent you in claims you may have against the owner and his insurance company.
At SLF, a Utah dog bite lawyer will give you and your family the personalized attention and effective representation that you deserve.
Dog Bite Law
In Utah there was previously a one bite rule, which held that a dog owner was not liable for the dog’s first bite. Once the dog had bitten someone, however, the dog’s owner was on notice of the dog’s dangerous propensity, and if the dog ever bit someone again the owner would likely be held liable for any damages. Today, the “one bite” rule no longer applies and a dog owner may be responsible regardless of whether a particular dog has ever bitten someone before.
In choosing an attorney to represent you in an action for injuries sustained from a dog attack, make sure that the attorneys are familiar with the laws on dog bites in Utah. At Salcido Law Firm, a Utah dog bite lawyer understands the laws and can provide you with effective representation.
