Each and every year, there are over 4 million dog bites throughout the United States. Even worse, every fifth dog bite is so severe that it requires medical assistance. Dog bites are severe injuries and should not be treated lightly. Dog bites can leave victims with long-term and debilitating injuries and huge medical bills. If you’ve been bitten by a dog, you should consider seeing a doctor or a medical professional as soon as possible.

Oftentimes dog bite victims are bitten by dogs belonging to friends or family. Due to this, many victims might be reluctant to file a personal injury claim against the dog owner. But this is a mistake since a dog owner’s home insurance policy is liable for injuries suffered from a dog attack. Here at the Idaho Advocates we can help you file a claim against the liable party’s home insurance policy in a professional and considerate manner.
