Countless families across the nation enjoy the companionship of one or more dogs in their home. While most domestic dogs are loving and have a mild temperament, some of these k-9's can also be over protective of their families or territory.
Approximately 4.5 million people in the United States are injured as a result of a dog bite or dog attack each year, many of which are children. Approximately 800,000 of those injured require medical treatment.
If you or a loved one has been injured as the victim of a dog bite or animal attack, you need a detailed and aggressive dog bite liability legal strategy. It is also important to have a voice of experience on your side.
Dog and pet owners are responsible for ensuring they take proper measures to make sure others are not put in harm's way with regards to potential harmful incidents with their pets. If the dog owner fails to adhere to proper safety precautions, and their dog bites or attacks someone causing injury, they may legally be liable for the actions of their pet.
When pursuing a dog bite injury & liability claim, we will address all important issues that should be taken into consideration when pursuing a personal injury claim, including:
Many dog bite and dog attack incidents may have been avoided if the owner had taken even the simplest of precautions, such as properly chaining their dog up, ensuring the dog collar was properly fitted so they could not slip out and attack, and not leaving their dog unattended and roaming freely.
