Americans love dogs. There are more than 70 million dogs in the country. Most are kind, loving animals but there are some dogs that cause serious injuries to people, especially to children, who are particularly vulnerable. When this occurs, dog owners can be held accountable for their pets’ actions.
Typically, dog bites are covered under homeowner’s insurance, but dog attacks can occur in a variety of different locations. Sometimes, even police dogs get the wrong suspect and cause serious injuries to the attacked victim.
A dog attack can affect a victim on many different levels: physical, emotional and financial. Permanent scars, nerve damage, tendon damage, and virulent infection can all result from a dog bite. Even death can occur. In addition to the physical pain of an attack, dog bites are traumatic events, especially for children and can have a deeply negative long-term effect on them.
Our lawyers fight for the full range of damages for dog bite victims. This includes payment for medical bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and compensatory damages for the pain and suffering of the attack. We seek the fair, rightful compensation our clients are entitled to under the law.
