Dog Bite Attorney
Have You Been Attacked by a Vicious Animal?
Dog bites are, unfortunately, a common occurrence and can cause serious
personal 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 help recover compensation for the medical bills and the
pain and suffering associated with a dog bite. This all starts by helping
you file a personal injury claim.

What to Do After an Animal Bite
- Seek medical attention, and keep the doctor’s notes
- Take pictures of the injury as soon as possible as evidence
- Find the owner of the animal and tell them what happened to prevent future incidents
- If you can’t find the owner, contact local authorities for help
- Contact an attorney to discuss legal recourse
In many cases, victims of dog bites are hesitant to approach the dog’s
owner about their injuries, especially when the owner is a family member,
close friend, or neighbor. However, it is essential to obtain basic information
about the dog if you are considering
filing a personal injury claim.
When obtaining the history of the dog, be sure to record the following:
- The dog’s vaccination history
- Whether the dog has ever been quarantined for aggressive behavior
- The dog’s bite history
While large dog breeds are most commonly associated with attacks, even
small dogs can be vicious at times. A small, enraged dog can be relentless
and too fast for you to get away from, and you could
slip and fall while running. No matter the size or breed of a dog, you should take the
proper steps after an attack to secure your dog bite claim in front of a court.
