A Dog Bites You in Clallam County, Washington

There’s a reason why almost half of American households have dogs. A dog can give you unconditional love and affection. Let’s face it; dogs are our best friends and the connections we have with them are sometimes unexplainable. From the moment you met them at the Clallam County Humane Society or picked them out of the litter of puppies, you knew your bond would last forever.

But it is so easy to forget that the dogs you consider family members could actually be dangerous. We shake our heads in disbelief at people who are afraid of dogs. Why would you shy away from petting a cute, lovable animal? The thing is, we forget that the dog you pass on your evening stroll through your Clallam County neighborhood is actually muzzled and on a leash for a reason.

That reason? The five million dog bite injuries that are reported in our country each year. Not to mention that almost 20 percent of those require the victim to be hospitalized and receive medical attention. We want to believe that our precious pups won’t attack, even when provoked, but unfortunately, it does happen.

You’ve taken steps to make sure your pet isn’t dangerous by going to training classes and showing them affection, but that doesn’t mean the risk has subsided, especially for your kids. Living in Clallam County, we constantly encounter dogs that aren’t our own. While they look cute, cuddly, and approachable, that does not mean they are safe to get close to them and pet.

Dog bite injuries are serious to say the least. After being bit by a dog, you could spend days in the hospital healing from your injuries and months in therapy to recover from psychological distress. The rehabilitation costs add up and the medical expenses increase.

If a dog in Clallam County, Washington has attacked you or your family member, you need to reach out to a dog bite injury attorney who will fight for the compensation you and your family deserves. You’re stressed enough worrying about your healing and recovery. You need a Washington dog bite injury attorney who will guide you through the process and make it stress free.

At McMenamin & McMenamin, PS, we want to stand by you as you go through this trying time. This attack came as a shock, and we know that if you came to us, you want answers and honesty. Our firm has helped victims throughout Clallam County, Washington and on the Olympic Peninsula with their dog bite injuries, and we want to help you through yours.
