Poendypyday : My dog nipped at my neighbor. He originally said he is not pressing any charges and refused money for medical care. A few weeks later I received a letter from an attorney stating he is suing for injury sustained for the bite and to give this notice tony homeowners. My dog is not covered in my homeowners and I called the law firm back to explain this. A week later I got a call that the neighbors attorney would like to schedule a phone meeting with me.
How can I prepare? What things will be discussed?

ChetAnned : Say nothing incriminating without a lawyer. In fact it's best to say nothing at all. If it happened on your property and not his or public/city property you may be okay. If they're going to sue they'll need a deposition and official statement from you. Whatever you tell them now they will use against you.

Byhopynep : Do not meet with this lawyer without your own attorney! Call up your insurance company and find out why a dog is not covered? Ask to be connected with a supervisor. If you were covered then the insurance company would provide you with a lawyer. And update your insurance so from now on your dog is covered. Since your dog has bitten someone you are on notice that it has a propensity towards aggressive behavior. If next week it nips the mailman the fact that it already bit the neighbor could be evidence in the mailman's case.

If you find out that you are truly not covered then hire your own lawyer. Some actually specialize in dog bite cases. Many law firms have blogs that give some pointers on dog bite law in your area. Don't send any emails or letters to your neighbor or his lawyer that admit that your dog bit anyone. If you do talk to the lawyer keep it brief. You could find out the damages your neighbor is seeking. But otherwise just tell him you are getting your own lawyer. It's possible your neighbor just wants a reasonable amount and you could settle this out of court, but you will still want your own lawyer to go over the settlement agreement.

olgabuzova : You need to consult an attorney FAST - DO NOT TAKE THAT CALL!!!
YOu are under NO obligation to speak to anyone else's attorney, and you could easily give them information to use against you. When faced with legal actiuon, the best thing to do is nothing, until you want to create a response. That means NOT speaking to either the alleged (and in this case it IS alleged) victim, nor his attorney.

If you pick up the phone and it is they, ONLY tell them you have been advised not to say anything at this time, and HANG UP. DO NOT say anything else - at all.

They will need to furnish proof of injury - and if the nip was only a nip, hopefully they have nothing. Was there ANYONE present when the guy said he was not injured? Your lawyer needs to have them give you an affidavit to that effect. Prior comments by the alleged victim can be used against them. Obviously, someone whispered in his ear that this was a monetary opportunity fro your insurance company - and now your insurance will also be going up, even if there is no claim against you. You need to speak to an attorney and when this is over, and you hopefully are exonerated, you need to take it up with the insurance company as a phony claim.

You will be hearing from the Animal Control Officer, and your dog will be quarantined. Look up the local laws regarding dogs bites - most places have a two bite regulation - you get one for free, and the next time the dog goes. Have the dog's vet records handy.

You need to be speaking to a lawyer IMMEDIATELY - this is not a joke, and I personally know someone who was in fact successfully sued for $30,000 for a herding dog nip to a kid's SLEEVE. These days, everyone is sue-happy, and the danger isn't just to the dog, it's to your family's financial well being. If you don't have the money now, they can garnish your wages.l.. go find a lawyer who specializes in dog bite law, and is known to win. You're in trouble.
