Injury caused by cat bites or attacks can result in civil or criminal liability for pet owners. The personal injury attorneys at O’Connor Acciani & Levy Co., LPA are experienced with cat attack cases and can advise you about your rights regarding these complicated personal injury laws.
Regulations differ from one town to another, and it is wise to work with a personal injury lawyer who is knowledgeable in this arena. Important factors in cat attack cases may include:
- whether the animal was confined or roaming free when the attack occurred
- the animal’s past history of attacks
- the owner’s knowledge of the animal’s tendency to attack
- negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct on the owner’s part
- insurance coverage limitations on dangerous pets
Contact a personal injury lawyer who is experienced with animal attacks as soon as possible after the injury. Medical attention is always recommended so that a doctor’s opinion is on the record. What may appear to be minor scratches or bites may develop into a more serious condition if the cat is rabid or otherwise diseased.
