Being attacked or bitten by a dog is a traumatic experience, both physically and emotionally. No matter its severity, a dog attack can have serious health effects and lead to lasting fear and stress.
Unfortunately, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs every year in the U.S. One-fifth of those bites requires medical attention. Children are at a higher risk of being bitten, and their injuries tend to be more severe. Even when they don’t bite, dogs often attack people. Because they are frequently large, powerful animals, they can inflict serious harm.
If you have been attacked or bitten by a dog, seeking legal recourse might not be at the top of your mind. But an ER visit, stitches, possible surgery, medication, and other expenses add up fast. We have experience with these cases and can work with the dog owners and their insurance company and seek compensation for your medical bills, time away from work, and other losses related to the incident. We offer a free initial consultation, so you can tell us your story and discuss the next steps without obligation.
