Compensation typically comes from the insurance company of the dog owner or guardian. There are four different types of compensation that may be available:
This could include past and future medical costs (including cosmetic treatment of scars), loss of income, loss of the ability to earn income, damaged possessions, psychological treatment costs, and other costs related to the dog bite.
This includes pain and suffering from the injury, mental anguish, scarring, and other traumas affecting your quality of life.
Statutory Strict Liability
The dog owner must pay damages for the dog bite victim's injury regardless of whether or not the dog appeared dangerous in the past. The term "statutory" specifies that this type of liability varies from state to state.
If the attacking dog's owner knew that their dog was violent but let them interact with people anyway, punitive damages may be collected. (This type of compensation varies from state to state.)
Dog bite victims may be entitled to compensation.
