Frequently Asked Questions

Can I recover medical expenses incurred as a result of a dog bite? to expect from the first meeting with your solicitor?

Under Delaware law, if you have been injured by a dog bite, you may be able to recover medical expenses incurred as a result of the injury. Delaware follows a “strict liability” rule when it comes to dog bites. This means that a dog owner is responsible for any damages caused by their dog, regardless of whether the owner knew or should have known that the dog was dangerous. To recover medical expenses for a dog bite injury in Delaware, you would need to prove that you were bitten by the dog, that the dog owner is responsible for the dog, and that the bite caused you to incur medical expenses.

You may be entitled to recover the full amount of your medical expenses. It’s important to note that Delaware law does not limit recovery to just medical expenses. You may also be able to recover damages for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses that result from the dog bite. Contact Long & Greenberg to schedule a free consultation!
