Attorney David Morgan loves pets just like anyone else. But, when an irresponsible Dog owner let’s their Dog bite you then you need to protect your legal rights. With about 78 million dogs owned in the United States, dogs clearly play a valued role in families. In addition to adding security to the home, they provide unconditional love and they teach children responsibility. But when people are injured by dog bites, they can cause severe injuries and illnesses. Even one negative dog bite incident can leave children with fears that last a lifetime. Every year, 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bite injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about half the victims are children. If you or a loved one suffers injury from a dog bite, you may have the right to pursue compensation for the expenses related to the physical and psychological harm caused by the incident. To get the compensation you deserve, you need an attorney who knows the specific state laws that can apply to your case and the compensation for the expenses related to the harm caused by the incident. To get the compensation you deserve, you need an attorney who knows the specific state laws that can apply to your case.

State and local laws offer varying protection against Dog Bites

Depending on whether you are located in Idaho or Utah, the laws regarding dog bites differ. Mr. Morgan has experience in both states handling dog bite claims.

 At the Morgan Law Firm, we have the legal knowledge to protect your rights.

Special considerations for young dog bite victims

Particularly when children visit the homes of friends and family, property owners have a responsibility to keep their visitors reasonably safe under premises liability laws. Since homeowners accept supervisory responsibility for young visitors, they may be held liable for injuries their pets cause, regardless of how they happened.
