Skilled and Experienced Dog Bite Attorneys
An animal attack can happen anywhere at anytime and, often, without warning. Every day in the United States nearly 1,000 people seek medical attention for a dog bite injury. Most of these injuries and attacks are preventable if the animal’s owners had properly trained and socialized their pets.
Sadly, far too many of these animal injuries involve children. Despite involving serious injuries, people are sometimes hesitant to make a claim for a animal attack injury because the animal’s owner is a friend or neighbor. However, just because you know the animal’s owner does not mean you should not seek compensation. This is particularly true as many dog bite claims are covered by insurance.
