While dogs are often man’s best friend, they can also cause you or your family serious physical injuries, including permanent scarring and even death. Such injuries can be especially grave for small children.
Under Utah law, if a dog has injured you or your family, the owner is liable for any corresponding injuries and damages. See Utah Code § 18-1-1(1). Very often the dog owner’s homeowners or renters insurance provides coverage for such dog and animal attacks, including compensation for your injuries. It can, however, be difficult—if one is not experienced with insurance policies—to locate insurance coverage for such injuries.
At Head Law, we have many years of experience with personal injury, wrongful death, and insurance denial cases. We understand the impact a dog or animal attack has on you or your family, and will be able to locate any applicable insurance coverage to ensure you get full and fair compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.
