In Indiana, a dog owner has to make sure the pet is properly restrained in public, and the owner must keep the dog from roaming freely. Dog owners may be liable for failing to keep an animal under control, even if they did not know their animal had vicious tendencies before it bit or attacked somebody. Dog owners are also responsible for injuries their pets inflict on state or federal workers, including the mailman, when those workers are in places that they are required to be because of their job.
There's no doubt that a dog bite can be brutal and devastating. A dog attack can leave a person with permanent scars and disabilities. Small children and the elderly are the most susceptible to these attacks as they can be knocked down easily, and they may lack the strength to fight off the animal. Depending on the severity of the dog bite or attack, a person's injuries may even prove to be fatal.
It's ridiculous that someone should have to suffer and pay the medical bills due to another person's negligence because their dog is dangerous and vicious. I help Hoosiers who have suffered injuries in dog bite attacks due to violation of municipal leash laws or other acts of negligence. I will fight to make sure that you and your family receive the compensation that you deserve to take care of medical bills, including counseling if necessary. In cases where children are bitten by dogs, I will assist the parents by pursuing money compensation for medical expenses and other damages. You may be entitled to money for pain and suffering, money for lost wages, money for medical expenses, money for permanent injury, money for scarring, pain and suffering, broken bones, soft tissue injuries and disfigurement and many other benefits. Usually, the dog owner does not have to pay any money to the injured person. If the dog owner has purchased proper insurance coverage, the insurance company will have to pay money to the injured person.
