Microchip implant (animal)

Dog bites can be distressing and traumatic experiences that leave lasting physical and emotional scars. In the aftermath of this type of incident, identifying the dog's owner and holding them responsible for their pet's actions is crucial for seeking justice and obtaining compensation. With advancements in technology, microchip implants have emerged as a valuable tool in identifying dog owners and providing evidence in dog bite cases.

    What is the Role of Microchips in Identifying Dog Owners?

    Microchip implants have revolutionized the way we identify and track pets, providing a valuable tool for dog owners and authorities alike.

    A microchip implant is a small electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted beneath the skin of a pet, typically between the shoulder blades.

    The microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned using a compatible microchip scanner. The number is registered in a database, allowing for quick identification of the pet and its owner.


    How Does Microchipping Identification Work?

    When a dog is brought to a shelter, veterinary clinic, or animal control agency, they are typically scanned for a microchip. A microchip scanner emits a low-frequency radio signal that activates the microchip, allowing it to transmit the identification number.

    The unique identification number obtained from the microchip is then used to access a database where the owner's contact information is registered. This information includes the owner's name, address, and phone number.

    Once the owner's information is retrieved from the database, authorities can contact them and inform them about the incident involving their dog. This enables them to take appropriate action and ensures accountability for the dog's actions.


    How Will a Lawyer Use the Implant Information?

    In a dog bite case, your dog bite lawyer will play a crucial role in establishing liability and seeking compensation for your injuries. They will work with you to gather details about the microchip, such as the identification number, the database it is registered with, and any associated records.

    Using the microchip information, your lawyer can access the appropriate database and retrieve the owner's contact details, including their name, address, and phone number.
    Your lawyer will use the microchip information to establish ownership or control of the dog by the identified owner. This is essential in determining liability for the dog's actions and holding the owner responsible.

    With the owner's information and the microchip implant as evidence, your lawyer will strengthen your case by gathering additional supporting evidence, such as medical records, witness statements, and photographs of your injuries.

    Can I Pursue Compensation for Dog Bite Injuries?

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
