Dog bite victims who would like to share information about their experience with others, please complete the form below, and it will be transmitted to dog bite expert Dr. Polsky for review. If you would like details of your case presented on this website, minus your identity, please indicate your desire in the form. Sharing information about your incident might be beneficial for others, particularly in regard to alerting others about the kind of circumstances to avoid, and also in the establishment of dog bite prevention measures.
Requested information contained in the form covers most of the necessary information needed to make preliminary dog bite analysis from an animal behavior perspective. For an example, the breed of the dog, the circumstances present at the time of the dog bite attack, your age and gender, what you were doing prior to the attack, etc.
A database of dog bite attorneys can be found online in the National Directory of Dog Bite Attorneys. Dog bite victims may also turn to the website of dog bite attorney Kenneth Phillips in Los Angeles for further understanding of what legal recourse they have against the dog owner or property owner. Generally speaking, if you live in a “strict liability” state for dog bites, you are legally entitled to compensation for your injuries, and bringing an attorney into your case may not be necessary. In most cases, insurance carriers will honor your dog bite claim in an honorable and respectful manner. On the other hand, successfully bringing legal action against the property owner is more challenging, and in these instances it might be beneficial to discuss your options with an experienced dog bite attorney.
