Dog Bite Lawyer to Get the Justice You Deserve
Annually, more than 350,000 persons are seen in medical emergency rooms as the result of dog bites or attacks.
If you have been bitten by a dog while in a public area or while lawfully on the private property of another, it is important for you to seek the help of a lawyer who can tell you whether you have a legal claim, whether there is sufficient evidence to pursue a dog bite lawsuit, and what damages you may be able to recover.
In general dog bite / attack victims should know the following:
- The law makes the owner of the dog strictly liable for dog attacks and bites
- Negligent behavior by a dog owner can make them liable for injuries caused by their dog / animal
- Violation of animal control laws may indicate liability of the person in possession of the dog

Dog Bite Attorney Who Will Protect Your Rights
As a personal injury lawyer, I am fully aware of how terrifying an attack can be for you or a member of your family. While laws may vary from one state of another, our state holds the dog owner strictly liable for injury and harm as a result of an attack that is not provoked by the victim.
Dog attacks require the counsel of an experienced lawyer to:
- Negotiate a full and fair settlement with insurance companies
- Depose witnesses and gather information to investigate the claim
- File a lawsuit if the claim in not settled
- Subpoena records
Since there are time limits, or "statute of limitations” for filing personal injury claims in our state, which include dog bite cases, it is advisable to consult with a lawyer to learn how this statute may apply to your specific case. Call us for a free initial consultation for guidance and counsel in pursuing your rights to file a claim within the time limits required in our state for a lawsuit.
We Can File a Dog Bite Lawsuit for Injury Compensation
As an experienced dog bite attorney, I have been retained to work with many victims that have suffered dog bites resulting in serious physical and cosmetic injuries. Many victims of dog attack and bite injuries are unaware of their rights, and consequently receive little or no compensation for their injuries or pain and suffering, or other damages caused by the attack.
If you are the victim of a traumatic dog attack and have suffered injuries, you may be entitled to recover damages to compensate you for those injuries. These are damages that a dog bite lawyer may help you to recover depending on the seriousness of your injuries:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, damages for disfigurement
- Property damage
