Dog Bite Attorney
Have You Been Attacked by a Vicious Animal?
Dog bites are, unfortunately, a common occurrence and can cause serious injury. Even if you are careful around unfamiliar animals around the neighborhood or in someone’s home, an incident can still occur. A scent, a movement, or even a sound can cause an animal to return to their wild instincts. When this happens, you may need to retain the services of a dog bite lawyer.
What many people don’t realize is that the dog owner is liable for the injuries caused by their uncontrolled pet. It is common practice to purchase homeowner’s insurance policies that cover dog bites, so if you, your child, or a loved one has been bitten by a dog or other domestic animal, please let us help you understand your legal options. In many cases, we can get compensation for medical bills and the pain and suffering associated with a dog bite by helping you file a personal injury claim.
