Children are often the victim of dog bite accidents, but adults can also suffer from seemingly minor bites or horrific attacks. Aggressive dogs, no matter their size, can cause significant injury to children and adults. You should seek immediate medical treatment if you have been bitten or attacked.
In some cases, dog bite victims may need psychological therapy to cope with the trauma of being attacked by an animal that they have perhaps learned to trust in the past.
Understanding Dog Bite Laws In Utah
The Wilkinson Legal Injury Law Team is familiar with animal violence and dog bite laws in Utah. Utah has strict liability laws that place responsibility for dog bites squarely on the animal’s owner. The law also provides provisions for collaring, registration and vaccination of dogs. Additionally, it arguably requires that owners of dangerous dogs and other animals must keep the animal in an enclosed yard or confined area with a visible sign posted to warn passersby of the animal’s vicious tendencies.
Our dog bite lawyers understand the pain that dog bites and animal attacks can cause. Our team thoroughly investigates attacks and works to hold responsible animal owners accountable under the law.
A successful civil lawsuit allows victims to collect compensation for their injuries and recover to normal life as usual once injuries have healed. We pursue financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, therapy, rehabilitation and reconstructive surgery for damage and scarring caused by the attack as necessary. A civil lawsuit also acts as a deterrent to other dangerous animal owners who have not been following the law as they must.
Slip and Fall / Premises Liability
By law, stores and most other places of business are required to provide safe facilities and locations for customers and patrons. Other places of business falling under this category include:
- Grocery stores
- Retail stores and shops
- Shopping malls
- Stadiums and arenas
- Certain rental properties
- Cruise ships
This is not an exhaustive list. Private homeowners and other property owners may even be held liable if they invite others onto their property or if they do not take reasonable measures in deterring the public from entering dangerous areas such as a building under construction or renovation or a private pool.
If an individual is injured due to the negligence of a property owner or lessor, there are legal avenues the injured party may take to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
A slip, trip or fall injury can put you out of commission for an extended period of time, and it may even cause a lifetime of pain and suffering. Our lawyers thoroughly investigate the details of each accident case we handle. We determine how injuries occurred and what should have been done by the property owner to prevent it.
We analyze surveillance cameras, witness accounts, medical records and the safety procedures the venue had in place. If there was negligence or a wrongful act involved, we will find it. We also review accident scenes for negligent security practices. A lack of properly trained security personnel may allow sufficient time for a mugging, robbery or rape to occur on a premises, and this may be grounds for a liability claim.
The store or business at fault may be reticent to pay your full claim for damages and the compensation that you need to cover medical bills and physical therapy. We step in and handle all aspects of your legal claim. Our attorneys pursue the compensation you deserve and protect your best interests throughout litigation
