Dog owners are responsible for the behavior of their pets, regardless of whether or not their pets have a history of violent behavior. The reality is that it is not just the stereotypically dangerous dogs — Doberman pinschers, rottweilers and pit bulls — that are responsible for attacking people. Any dog can cause damage, even small dogs, particularly when children are the target of their attacks.

We take immediate action when investigating dog bite cases, and we encourage our clients to take important initial steps as well, such as finding out who owns the dog, getting photos of the dog and the location of the attack, gathering witness information and making certain to save clothes damaged by the dog. Never admit fault for a dog attack against you. Of course, the most important step for you to take — and we encourage you not to delay — is to get medical treatment for the wounds.

No Fee Unless Compensation Is Recovered

We handle all dog and animal attack cases on a contingency basis. This means there is no fee unless compensation is recovered.
