When you are attacked by a dog, our injury lawyer can explain what legal options are possible for you. Let us review your dog bite injury case so you can focus on healing.
Who can you sue in a dog bite case?
A claim or lawsuit can be filed against a person whose dog attacked another individual unprovoked. If it’s unknown who owns the dog that attacked you, researching for lost or abandoned dogs might be an avenue to find who is liable. Stray animals that attacked you may make the city, county or state liable for not having appropriate animal control measures.

Winning a personal injury case requires us to collect evidence to prove the responsible party’s liability. There are four components to proving liability:
- The at-fault party had a duty to do something—or not do something—to keep you safe.
- They failed to uphold the duty.
- Their action or inaction caused an accident, and your injuries resulted.
- You sustained physical injuries and incurred financial losses.

Seeking a Fair Settlement in Your Terre Haute Personal Injury Accident Case
Be cautious when approached by an insurance company with an initial settlement offer after your personal injury accident. An insurance company may make you a quick, lowball offer if they believe their client is responsible for your accident. However, signing a settlement offer that does not address all of your losses may prohibit you from recovering further compensation in the future. You are not obligated to accept an initial offer, and in many personal injury cases, you may be able to negotiate for a higher amount or recover greater compensation in court.
If you hire a Terre Haute personal injury lawyer from Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. to represent your case, we will handle the negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf. Our team collects receipts, bills, and other paperwork to show the economic costs associated with this type of accident, and can put a price on your noneconomic losses, such as your physical pain and mental anguish. We can then use this evidence to counter a lowball offer in negotiations with the insurance company.
The recoverable damages in a Terre Haute personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit may include:
- Pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages.
- Current and future medical care costs.
- Ongoing care costs if needed.
- Lost wages, benefits, and other compensation for missed work.
- Diminished earning ability if you cannot return to your previous job.
- Property damages.
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident, injuries, or care.
Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. can also help if your loved one passed away as a result of an injury accident in Terre Haute. Your family may be able to seek and secure damages based on your related losses in a wrongful death lawsuit.
