At Premier Law Group, we love dogs. Dogs who are properly trained, socialized and managed by their owners are wonderful companions who bring boundless joy to our lives. But we also understand that sometimes, dogs bite. When a dog attack is the result of carelessness or negligence by an owner, that owner is responsible for the consequences. And the consequences can be severe – including medical bills, time lost from work, and ongoing trauma.

The victims of dog bites are often children, and the trauma and injuries can sometimes last a lifetime. Fortunately, the State of Washington has a dog bite statute that holds dog owners responsible for their pets, and victims of a dog bite can be compensated fully and fairly. But there are time limitations, so if you, your child or other loved one has been bitten, it’s important to contact Jason Epstein and Premier Law Group as soon as possible to learn about your next steps.

Seattle has been ranked as the 2nd best US city to live with your dog. Dogs are everywhere, and we love it that way! But while most dogs are “man’s best friend,” some dogs can bite and cause serious injuries. It’s not just big dogs, either – even small dogs can cause serious injuries. Victims of dog attacks often suffer:

  • Deep cuts
  • Muscle and tendon damage
  • Broken bones
  • Blood loss

How Premier Law Group Will Help You

First, we will help you decide whether you even need a lawyer – if you can settle your case on your own, our free book can help provide the guidance you need to do just that. For more complex cases, you will want to have an attorney to get the best settlement possible. Remember, the trauma you experience right after car accidents can be the tip of the iceberg. It is not until you have healed fully that you can know about the full nature and extent of your injuries, including if you have any permanent damage. Insurance companies will pressure you to settle before you know the full extent of the impact of an accident. That’s not right, and we will stand up for you! We will:

  • Listen carefully to your needs, questions and concerns
  • Handle ALL the legal issues so you can focus on healing
  • Deal with the insurance companies – sometimes there are more than one!
  • Order all medical records and bills related to your injuries
  • Walk you through the litigation process so you fully understand what is happening
  • Communicate with you regularly so you know how your case is progressing
