Dog Bite Information

            Do you own a dog?  Does your dog have all of its shots?  Is he kept in a fenced yard and only taken out on a leash?  If so, congratulations!  You are a conscientious dog owner.  Not everyone is. 

            Dogs bite 4.5 million people each year.  Six out of 10 dog bites are received by children. 

Suppose you were walking down the street and a dog came running out from your neighbor’s yard and attacked you.  Worse, suppose your child was playing in your own front yard and was mauled by a dog owned by a neighbor.  Do you know what to do? 

►        Seek immediate medical attention; 

►        Report the bite to local law enforcement and animal control; and

►        Contact an attorney who specializes in dog bite injuries.

Your attorney will take every step necessary to obtain fair compensation for your injuries.  He or she will ascertain whether the dog has had the necessary inoculations, will obtain reports from the local authorities and interview witnesses.  They will also deal with the homeowner’s insurance company when they call and ask how you are doing.  You need someone to speak for you.  You need an attorney experienced in dog bite cases. 

            Our firm has been representing dog bite victims for over 25 years.  If you or a member of your family have been the victim of a dog attack, I invite you to fill out an online consultation form or engage in an online chat.  Don’t wait.
