Dog Bites

Washington is a “strict liability” state when it comes to dog bite injury liability. This means that a dog owner may be liable the first time a dog bites, even if the owner didn’t know and had no reason to know the dog might bite someone. 
The two defenses against this is trespassing and provocation of the dog 
Dog bites and canine attacks/maulings are common and can cause serious injuries, including permanent disfigurement, nerve and tissue damage and psychological trauma. In extreme cases, dog attacks may result in death. If you have been attacked by a dog you may need our help in order to get compensation for your losses. Call or email us for a free consultation.
