Injury cases, including dog bite lawsuits in New Orleans, generally award compensation for a number of losses you may experience. These losses may include the costs of medical treatment associated with the dog bite, lost wages from time away from work receiving treatment or healing, future medical costs that you can reasonably anticipate as a result of the dog bite, compensation for pain and suffering from the experience, and recovery for any property damage that required repair or replacement.
In dog bite lawsuit cases, owners are considered to have strict liability, but there are limitations based on individual circumstances. These are decided on a case by case basis, but generally speaking, if a victim can be shown to have provoked the dog, the dog’s owner can prevail in a dog bite case.
