Dog Bites

Seattle Dog Bite Attorney

Damages in dog-bite cases can be substantial as you are injured both physically and emotionally. As the victim, you may have lost a sense of security as you go about daily life. In fact, you may always worry about when the next dog will run out from behind a fence and attack you. This is a feeling you will have to live with every day after a dog bite, and it is because of this that you deserve compensation.

I'm John Polito, a lawyer in Bellevue, Washington, who handles dog-bite cases. I have nearly 25 years of experience helping adults and children in Seattle, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Tacoma,, and other cities in western Washington state recover compensation for the serious injuries they suffer in dog attacks.

Insurance companies fail to grasp that dog-bite cases are strict-liability cases. In fact, they will knowingly try to avoid what the legislature and courts have long established: that homeowners are responsible for their dog's actions.

When a dog bites you or your child and causes horrific injuries, I will not let the homeowner's insurance company say, "You should have run away from the dog," or "Your child teased the dog." It is the homeowner's dog and if they had not allowed it to escape, no harm would have occurred. I know how to talk to insurance companies and jurors about how your injuries and emotional trauma from the dog attack entitle you to fair and just compensation.

Dog-bite cases often result in disfigurement. I know which plastic surgeon to refer my clients to for the various types of injuries they have suffered—depending upon how badly you have been disfigured. I also know which doctors to send my clients to overcome emotional injuries.
