When Animals Attack

When most people think about dog bites, they may think of a simple nip or a small bite that breaks the skin. In reality, dog bites can lead to very serious and sometimes fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog attack, you may be facing substantial bills for extensive medical care. Bills for that medical care and any other losses should not come out of your pocket.

A skilled attorney can help you hold dog owners accountable for their dangerous dogs. Typically, a dog owner’s homeowners insurance provides for his or her defense, and it is the ultimate source of compensation for injuries suffered in a dog attack. We understand what it takes to secure the compensation you need.

Was Your Child Attacked By A Dog?

Children are often the victims of dog attacks for several reasons, including their short stature and inability to recognize when a dog should not be approached. These factors can lead to children being severely bitten, often in the face and neck. This can create:

  • Scarring
  • Trauma
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Difficulty socializing

All of these issues require special attention and need to be factored in, where appropriate, to the pursuit of compensation.
