Dangerous Animal Bites
Hawaii Dog Bite Attorney
County rules and regulations throughout the State of Hawaii prohibit owners of dangerous animals from permitting or causing an animal to become a stray by not properly tethering the animal. Hawaii Revised Statutes places the liability on the owner or the “harborer” of a vicious or dangerous animal, should the animal cause injuries and resulting damages.
The Law Offices of Ian Mattoch has experience in representing persons attacked by vicious dogs, cats, and even a gymnothorax pictus, a moray eel, owned and regularly fed by a resort. You need an attorney and a law firm that has experience with working in this area of law.
SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Injuries sustained by animal bites are highly susceptible to infection and need immediate medical attention. Wound care is critical in the healing of puncture and flesh wounds. Many of our clients have suffered nerve damage as a result of being attacked. Some wounds have required plastic surgery consultations for skin grafting and scar revision surgery.
WE WILL FIND OUT IF THERE IS MEDICAL PAY COVERAGE.
We know you were injured, but did the owner of the dangerous animal have insurance to cover your injuries and damages? The Law Offices of Ian Mattoch has years of experience, knowledge, and understanding of successfully handling dangerous animal claims.
