After living in a home for a period of time, a Washington resident may come to understand the unique quirks and characteristics of their residence. They may know which steps squeak when they are stepped on, or they may know where the floor bows and is not level. They may learn how to safely walk through hallways that are dark or not to use particular faucets that only produce hot water.
A dog bite or attack can inflict serious physical injuries on a Washington victim. Immediately after the attack, a victim should seek medical attention to make sure their health is not threatened and they are not at risk of contracting a serious illness. Once a victim has taken the appropriate precautions regarding their health and welfare, they may start the process of understanding their options for seeking justice.
Clean floors, wet floor signs and level sidewalks are all things we may take for granted as we run errands and visit local establishments. Going about our daily lives comes with an expectation of feeling safe and avoiding injury from a slippery floor or a hole in the sidewalk.
