Dog Bites

Dog Bites

More than 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs each year and nearly 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites with nearly half of them being children.  Of those injured, 386,000 require treatment in an emergency department and tragically, about 16 die.  The rate of dog bite-related injuries is highest for children ages 5 to 9.

Dog Bite Law 

In most states, the owner of any dog that bites any person while in a public or private place, including the property of the dog’s owner, is liable for damages suffered by persons bitten.  This is true regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners’ knowledge of such viciousness.

We pursue cases for many different types of injuries caused from dog attacks, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement resulting from scars
  • Infection
  • Bone fracture injury
  • Rabies
  • Nerve damage
  • Death
As difficult as the physical injuries are to overcome, a dog bite victim can often suffer from psychological damages as well.  These psychological damages often include, but are not necessarily limited to, nightmares, embarrassment, medical expenses for plastic and reconstructive surgery, and lost income.

I had a great experience with everyone at the law firm. Everyone one was great, Andy, Jensen, and Hasree especially! They all took great care of me. I was in a car accident where the woman blindsided me. They got me to a orthopedic right away and got me started with Physical Therapy. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Ms. Giorginia Vazquez did her thing!! She got me over $1800 the amount expected. I loved your service and patience with me through this whole process. Unlike others left me in limbo of figuring out my next move, until it was assigned to you. It took rather long than expected, but you did what you had to do even with the holidays in. Thx lots!!
