Dog Bite and Animal Attack Statutes Can Help You in Rhode Island
Rhode Island is a strict liability state when it comes to dog bites. That means that if you are attacked by a dog or another pet outside of the pet owner’s property, you are most likely entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered. This statute applies to “keepers” of the animal as well, not just the pet owners.
If the dog you have been bitten by has attacked individuals in the past, you may be entitled to double the damages. You can rely on my law firm to protect your rights and explain all of your options after suffering a personal injury. If you are not sure if you have a case contact a Providence Animal Attack Lawyer.
Children and Dog Bites
Unfortunately, many children in Rhode Island are bitten by dogs. An attack can have a huge impact on a child’s life. Bringing a suit against the negligent parties helps to ensure that this same type of accident will not occur to other children in the future. I will sit down with you and your child to show you how the premises liability laws can help you through this time in your life.
