Advocating On Behalf Of Your Injured Pet
Your pets are a part of the family, and their well-being is important to you. It is hard to see them suffer, especially when their pain was caused by another individual’s negligence, someone’s malicious actions or a dangerous animal. Many times, pet accidents occur because another animal’s owner failed to properly control their own animal. If their animal does not play well with others, it may attack and severely injure your pet.
Nursing a pet back to health can be expensive, time-consuming and emotionally draining. Fortunately, you may be able to file a personal injury suit to secure the damages that your family deserves after a traumatic accident.

Understanding Pet Injury And Wrongful Death Cases
A pet is viewed as property; therefore, their injury or wrongful death case is handled differently than a typical motor vehicle accident or slip-and-fall case. Compensation may be determined by several factors, including:
- Veterinary bills
- The pet’s market value
- The cost of replacing the animal
- Expenses from any accident-related property damage
- Special contributing factors about your pet
Special factors may come into play if your pet was a service animal, a show animal, a hunting dog, used for breeding or trained in extensive way that would significantly increase their economic value.
