What About Minor Dog Bite Injuries?
If you have been bitten by a dog or been attacked by one and your injuries are not deemed to be significant, you have still suffered harm under Washington law. You are entitled to seek a path to make yourself whole.
You can still recover damages from the attack. You can do so without proving the owner of the dog was negligent in their actions or that the dog has a past history of violent acts toward humans.
With a minor injury, you may be limited to receiving a monetary award to cover your medical expenses.
Additional evidence that shows intentional, negligent, or reckless actions by a dog owner may increase the potential for monetary damages.
