I was bitten by a dog. What should I do?

1 Answers. Asked on Mar 16th, 2017 on Personal Injury - Arizona
More details to this question:
Last month I was bitten by a dog while I was out of town. I suffered injuries and had to have stitches. This incident ruined my vacation. The person does not have renters insurance. They agreed to settle out of court and they did not follow through. Now here I am trying to figure out my next move as soon as possible. Please help.

The state where the dog bite occurred has jurisdiction. Contact a lawyer in that state.

Personal Injury
Have you been injured in accident that was someone else's fault? Has a doctor's mistake caused long-term health issues? Have you been hurt by a defective product? Under state personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation if you are hurt as a result of another person or company's negligent, reckless or deliberate actions. Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
