    Dog Bite Attack Lawsuit Loans Overview

    They call dogs a man’s best friend – most of the time, that’s probably true.

    In the United States alone there are around 80 million pet dogs, with New York alone estimating 600,00 dog owners. Put another way, almost half the homes in America are dog owners. That’s a pretty startling number.

    When you consider that dogs are descendants of wolves, animals not known for their patience with humans, it’s no surprise that you read stories of a dog attacking people, resulting in a large number of victims of dog bites.

    A recent study estimated that more than dog bite attacks affect 1% of the American population every year, or 4.5 million people. About 16% of these people need some kind of treatment, and about half of those are rushed to the hospital. In fact, in 2015, more than 28,000 victims had to have surgery because of dog bites.

    That’s not to say all dogs are dangerous, but they certainly can be. Sometimes the harm that dog bites cause is so bad the plaintiff will file a dog bite injury lawsuit. Uplift is a lawsuit funding company that provides a no-risk dog bite attack lawsuit settlement loan.

    If you’re injured and out of work as a result of a dog attack, Uplift can help. Apply online for legal funding or give us a call at (800) 385-3660. We are experienced in handling dog bite personal injuries. Therefore we won’t leave you in the dark about your dog bite lawsuit funding. We will make sure we keep you updated about your dog bite claim.

    After you have dog bite injuries, you need to know whether or not the dog owner can be held accountable. This is also important when it comes to legal funding. Proof of liability is always important. We have listed some of the liability factors when it comes to dog attacks:

    One bite laws

    Liability can be placed on the dog owner if the owner was aware that the dog would bite someone. The laws are called that because if a dog bites someone once, they are likely to bite someone again. In order to prove liability, the plaintiff would have to prove that the owner knew the dog would bite someone.

    Dog bite statutes

    Liability is generally placed on the dog owner if the dog destroys any property or harms an individual. However, if the owner can prove that the dog was provoked, they will be relieved of all liability.

    Negligence laws

    If an owner is found to be careless and an injury occurs they are held accountable. Even if the dog is friendly and in excitement hurts someone, the injured individual is entitled to compensation.

    Dog bite liability by state

    Here is the dog bite laws in several states:


    In California, a dog bite victim may sue if they have express or implicit access to the dog owner’s property. If in public, an individual will be able to sue if the dog attacked unprovoked

    New York

    In New York, an individual is liable if a ‘dangerous dog’ gives an injury to a person, livestock, or another person’s animal. A dangerous dog is defined as:

    attacks and injuries/kills an individual or animal without reason or behaves in a way that another person would view as a threat.


    Pennsylvania states that the dog in question has to be a dangerous dog in order for the bite victim to seek compensation. A dangerous dog is considered as the following:

    • inflict severe injury on a human on either private or public property
    • Killed or harmed a companion animal without provocation
    • Attacked a human without provocation
    • Been used to commission a crime


    If an animal harms a person or companion animal without provocation then the owner is at fault.


    In Georgia, the dog must be perceived as ‘dangerous’ by any reasonable person and’ be left at large due to a careless owner.


    In Florida, an owner can be held liable for a dog bite even if the dog isn’t considered ‘dangerous’ beforehand. The victim has to prove that the animal attacked unprovoked.

    Dog bite injuries

    It’s easy to forget that dogs have extremely sharp, deadly teeth. These teeth can do a lot of damage to an individual, especially if that person is a child or a senior citizen. Here are just a few of the injuries that dog bite victims may have as a result of the incident:

    Dog bite lawsuit loans

    There are avenues available to a plaintiff to put them on an even playing field with insurance companies, even if they don’t have rich relatives who can loan them money. No matter what the insurance company will most likely be able to string the case along for a while before you ever see a courtroom. Lawsuit funding companies provide a cash advance to victims of dog bites to make sure you see the case through to the end to get your rightful award. To be considered for lawsuit funding, you need to fulfill the following criteria:

    • you have an attorney handling your case
    • you are an adult (18 years old)
    • there has to be documentation proving your injury results from a dog attack, the strict liability, and the dog owners insurance coverage (we obtain these from your attorney)

    It is best that prior to receiving legal funding you have received maximum medical treatment for the bite. It may seem like you have medical bills piling up, but that is not the case. Your attorney can submit a letter of protection for those medical bills and your claim will be worth more in general. This is similar to the legal advice your lawyer will give.

    Attorneys realize that their clients can sometimes be in a financial bind and many times are extremely helpful with the process. From the time we get information from your attorney, we often can get you an answer regarding your lawsuit funding the same day. That means pre-settlement money in your pocket very quickly.

    How much is my dog bite case worth?

    Just like if you have been in a car accident, there is a range of values for any dog bite case. Any possible award depends on a number of factors:

    • The severity of injuries to dog bite victims
    • Type of treatment the plaintiff received for personal injury (therapy, surgery, etc)
    • Location of incident
    • Dog owners insurance coverage

    There are other factors as well, but these are the main ones. Many dog attack cases settle for relatively small amounts because the injuries tend to be superficial. However, there can be severe cases that can even result in wrongful death. Some cases can settle in the thousands to the tens of thousands. It’s not unheard of for severe dog bite cases to settle in the six-figure range.

    The dog bite attack legal funding amount you qualify for depends on your estimated case value relating to your personal injury. The more your personal injury case is worth, the more in lawsuit funding we will be able to grant you. This is because we generally advance up to 20% of your potential personal injury settlement. If you have a higher settlement, you will be able to get a larger amount of legal funding.

    How long will my dog bite case take to settle?

    Here’s where the insurance company has the upper hand. In almost every lawsuit, the insurance company has more money available than the plaintiff seeking justice for a dog attack. Insurance companies use that knowledge to try to drag out the case. By extending the lawsuit, the hope is that the plaintiff will need money so badly that they’ll accept a low offer just to resolve the case.

    It is common that dog bite cases can take years to settle. For some victims, especially those who have to have surgery because of their injuries, they lose time from work and that means a loss of income. Our litigation loans allow you the option to continue your case until you are happy with the award, there is no reason why you should settle for less than you deserve. Receiving lawsuit funding is a quick and easy option for your dog bite injury lawsuit.
