Letter Template to Dog Owner for Dog Attack to a Friend or Neighbor

Most dog attacks occur with dogs we are familiar with---a neighbor’s dog or a relative’s dog. Most clients who seek counsel on dog attacks are not so prepared to sue or make a serious claim against their neighbor or relative.

The first thing that needs to be accomplished is “de-briefing” the client regarding the legal and insurance system in place. It is paramount to explain that one of the reasons Homeowner’s Liability Insurance is in effect is just for this precise eventuality. This Letter Template is related to and associated with the recent post "Overcoming Relationship Issues in Dog Attack Cases." Woodland Hills personal injury attorney Barry P. Goldberg has provided a template which can be modified and used when communicating with a "friendly" dog owner.
