Honolulu Dog Bite Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Dog Bite Attorney in Honolulu, HI

Dogs make great pets, no wonder they are man’s best friend, and this is certainly true most of the time. But sometimes, dogs can cause injuries to people, and sometimes these injuries can be very serious. Millions of Americans are bitten by dogs every year in the United States. What’s worse is, children are often the victims in dog bite cases. These injuries can leave permeant scarring, disfigurement, emotional trauma, and sometimes they can be fatal.

No one ever expects to be bitten by a dog, but with nearly 77 million dogs living in U.S. households, your chances of being bitten by a dog are better than you might think. If you are a dog bite victim, you may be entitled to compensation from the dog’s owner or insurance company. You should consult with a Hawaii dog bite attorney to find out if you have a dog bite case.

Hawaii Revised Statute § 663-9, places the liability for injuries or damage caused by a dog on the dog’s owner or the person who harbors the dog. An owner would be strictly liable if they knew the dog has been vicious in the past. However, Hawaii Revised Statutes § 663-9.1 exempts injuries to trespassers, those who have abused the dog, or other cases in which the dog was provoked.

Hawaii’s dog bite law is similar to the “one-bite” rule. This rule requires that any person who owns a dog that has ever bitten or harmed someone in the past, must take reasonable steps to prevent the dog from hurting anyone else.

Dog Bite Costs
You may be entitled to damages that extend beyond the cost of your medical bills. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could also receive damages for other expenses such as:

  • Lost work
  • Time off for doctors’ appointments
  • Emotional trauma
  • Future medical care
  • A live in assistant
  • Damaged property

But winning a personal injury suit can be difficult for dog bite victims. Which is why it is important that you consult with an experienced dog bit attorney.
