Who will pay the compensation for my case?
If you were bitten by a family member’s or friend’s dog, you may be in a very unfortunate situation. Although you have substantial medical bills, you may feel uncomfortable seeking compensation. You have nothing to worry about though! Even if it is your friend or family member that is liable, damages are typically paid by their insurance. This can be the case if they have home owner’s or renter’s insurance. Moreover, in the unlikely situation that the defendant must for the damages themselves, you have complete control over whether to initiate legal action against the defendant.
