Dog owners in Montgomery, Alabama, have responsibilities to their pets and to the public. If their failure to fulfill these responsibilities led to your dog bite injury, a lawyer from our firm can fight for the compensation you and your family deserve.

At the Law Office of Dwayne L. Brown, we believe in empowering clients with the knowledge to make good decisions. Call our office to find out how our Montgomery personal injury lawyer can protect your rights against negligent parties and their insurance companies.

Financial Compensation and Your Montgomery Dog Bite Case

When one person’s negligence ends up hurting someone else, the injured party should not bear the financial burden of their losses alone—and, under Alabama law, they do not have to do so. You deserve help determining your dog bite claim’s worth and to cover all the following damages:

The Physical and Emotional Pain of Your Dog Bite

Being attacked by a dog can result in very painful injuries, as you well know. The person responsible for your suffering should have to pay you for:

  • Physical symptoms of the injury, including pain and loss of use
  • Emotional trauma associated with the violent nature of the attack
  • Lost quality of life if you have had to make major alterations to your lifestyle
  • Scar tissue from either the bite itself or from any required surgical interventions

Financial Losses Related to Your Dog Bite

Treating any injury can be expensive. Your financial woes may be made worse by the fact that you cannot work until your injury has healed enough. To help you meet your monetary obligations, we can fight for compensation for:

  • Wages, benefits, and promotions that you would have earned had you not been attacked
  • The full cost of all treatments (including medication, surgery, and physical therapy) that your doctor says are necessary
  • Travel expenses related to your medical treatment
  • The cost of hiring other people to help you live your daily life (e.g., to clean the house or walk the dog) until you have recovered

Future Losses Caused by the Dog Bite

At the time you begin a lawsuit, you might not have completely healed from your injuries. How can you recover fair compensation if you do not know the full extent of your losses yet? Let our Montgomery dog bite attorney do the work of:

  • Estimating how much money you would have earned throughout your professional life if you had not been bitten
  • Speaking with your doctor to find out what treatments you might need in the future and how much those treatments will cost
  • Determining your medical prognosis and figuring out what the long-term physical and mental effects of your injuries might be

We Do What Is Best for Our Montgomery Clients

For over 30 years, the Law Office of Dwayne L. Brown has helped regular people face extraordinary circumstances. Along the way, we have learned that the best way to help our clients is to:

  • Keep our client base small. We take on a limited number of clients, so we can dedicate ample attention to each one.
  • Educate you about the entire legal process. Our team takes the time to make sure our clients truly understand what their options are and what is happening with their cases.
  • Form personal relationships with clients. The people who come to our office are more than clients. We can check in with you regularly both to update you on your case and to see how you are holding up.
  • Get you the right healthcare. We can recommend great doctors, including mental health specialists, to help you recover.
  • Respond to clients promptly. It is natural to have questions about the legal process. We answer all communications in a timely fashion.

How Your Dog Bite Case Might Go

Since every case is different, it is impossible to determine how your case will go or how long it will take to complete until we get the chance to know you. In general, personal injury cases follow these steps:

  • We assess your case for free. Every single personal injury survivor in Montgomery is welcome to contact us at any time. A member of our team will tell you about the merits of your case during a free, confidential phone call.
  • We start building your case file. Evidence from sources like witness testimony, medical records, the police report, and video footage can all help prove that you were injured because of a negligent dog owner.
  • We get in touch with the liable party. Once we have confirmed the at-fault party’s identity, we can contact them about your legal action and request that they do not delay paying you fair damages.
  • We fight for your rights. It is likely that the insurance company will fight back against your claim to try to avoid paying more than they want to pay. We push hard for the settlement our client truly deserves.
  • We draw up the settlement agreement. If and when the insurer agrees to pay you, we can prepare the paperwork for your signature. We can also take care of all the other paperwork required in your case.
  • We go to court for our clients. Relatively few cases get this far, but we are always ready to make sure our clients are fairly represented in a court of law.

No matter what happens in your case or how complicated it is, we can keep you informed and make sure you understand all your options at all times. You never have to make a decision without information and advice from our dog bite team in Montgomery.

What Else Should You Know About Dog Bite Cases in Montgomery?

Your case will be affected by various applicable state bite laws. We can identify and explain such laws to you in as much detail as you like, including:

Alabama’s Statute on Dangerous Dogs

The process for investigating, identifying, and controlling a vicious dog can be found in AL Code § 3-6-1. What do the provisions in this law mean for bite victims? Among other things:

  • You have the right to file a complaint following the bite incident.
  • If your (or anyone else’s) case is found to have merit, the dog’s owner has to take certain measures to protect the public from their dog. These measures include microchipping the animal and proving that they can pay damages if the dog bites anyone else in the future.
  • If the owner fails to abide by these laws, and if you were attacked as a result, the owner is liable for your injuries and must pay compensation.

Alabama’s Statute of Limitations

Under AL Code § 6-2-38, you have two years to file a personal injury case. If you do so, the law will recognize your claim and allow you to move forward. If not, your case will more than likely be rejected, and you will not be able to collect any compensation.

We understand how badly your family needs this money, and we do not want you to risk losing it for any reason. The sooner you talk to us about your potential claim, the more our bite injury lawyer in Montgomery may be able to do about your case.

Premises Liability and Dog Bite Cases

Dog bite cases may fall under the state’s premises liability laws. “Premises liability” simply means that the owner of any given property is responsible for making sure that visitors can navigate that property safely. Your case might fall under the heading of premises liability if:

  • The attack happened while you were on another person’s property (e.g., visiting a neighbor’s house).
  • The attack happened primarily or partly because the owner did not adapt the property for your safety (e.g., they did not post “beware of dog” signs or construct a sturdy enough fence to contain the dog).
  • The dog’s owner and the property owner are different people: for example, if the dog owner rents their house and trusted the property owner to make certain repairs that were never completed, then the liable party in your case might be the property owner in addition to or instead of the dog owner.

As always, the Law Office of Dwayne L. Brown is here to help you decide if you have a premises liability claim and how you can get fair compensation for medical bills, lost income, and your pain and suffering.
