St. Louis Dog Bite Lawyer
Missouri is now a “strict liability” state meaning that the owner is automatically responsible for the injuries caused by his or her dog.
Each year in the United States more than 350,000 people seek medical attention due to a dog bite. Missouri is no longer a “one free bite” state. At one time the owner or keeper could not be held responsible unless the dog had bitten someone before. Missouri is now a “strict liability” state meaning that the owner or keeper is automatically responsible for the injuries caused by his or her dog, unless the victim provoked the dog or was trespassing.
The types of injuries suffered in dog bite attacks will vary depending on the size and viciousness of the dog. Many dog bites cause minor injuries. However, as mention above, many Americans seek medical treatment because the injuries are more serious, sometimes even fatal. Some common injuries include: punctures, lacerations, fractured bones and infections.
If you have been the victim of a dog bite, seek medical attention if necessary. It is then important that you get in contact with an experienced dog bite lawyer. The statute of limitations varies from state to state. Contact the Zevan and Davidson Law Firm to find out what these limits are in Missouri and Illinois.
