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.

If you or a child in your family has suffered an injury from a dog bite, contact The Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm – Honolulu or call us at 808-647-2423 and arrange a free case evaluation for your dog bite injury case.

I just want to tell you about my interactions with the men and women at AOR. First and foremost, I... have never NEEDED their services. I hope to NEVER need their services. This said, I have called and written on various occasions with a question or two about this and that, and have always been treated like I'm a member of the family... of anyone in their office with whom I speak. They are professional and courteous, yes, of course, but I'm always impressed by how they don't rush me off the phone, how they let me talk (which may take me a few minutes to explain what I'm looking to find out and to get the point I finally ask my question) and, before concluding our call, they always ask if I've gotten the exact information I wanted -- that is, the reason for my calling in the first place has been addressed to my satisfaction. I'm so sick and tired of paying money to people, then needing to talk to them at some point, and feeling like I'm inconveniencing them; I feel like "Um, you realize I'm paying you money to provide me services/information, right?" Not with Attorneys on Retainer. Honest to God, it is such a relief, to me personally, that I can say "Talk to my attorney" or "I'll be in touch with my attorney" or "I'll have my attorney call you," as a situation may warrant, and have it be true... knowing that AOR has my back. They've even told me, very specifically, if I'm ever in doubt as to whether call the office number or call the emergency number, just use the latter to be safe... stressing to me that they don't want me to worry about which number to call, that if I feel I need some kind of legal help, to just call them.I must say, I've been a member of other organizations (and still am, in a few cases) that say they offer legal help to people who have been involved in a shooting. I have dropped some of them already and am letting the other memberships expire by not renewing. There are just SO MANY excellent, TRULY excellent reasons to sign on with AOR, and an equal number of reasons why you shouldn't waste your money with other organizations. If you've been researching the topic of legal help and self-defense shootings, please, PLEASE, do yourself a favor and give a REALLY HARD LOOK at Attorneys on Retainer. I'm being very, very sincere when I say you aren't likely to ever have any regrets if you hire them.read more

I recently contacted Attorneys for Freedom to provide services for a set aside from a past felony... conviction.Everyone was extremely helpful and informative! Rachel & Tori were amazing, they kept me up to date on what was going on with my case as well as any part that I could play to benefit the prosses. From my very first call they kept me informed of all my options. They were prompt in answering any and all questions I had.Even living all the way up in Idaho they were very easy to work with, our entire business was conducted by phone & email. They handled everything!!I would absolutely recommend AFF, they actually give attorneys a good name.Chris A.read more
