There are 4.7 million dog bite victims each year. Dog attacks represent some of the worst personal injuries that are suffered, particularly when a child is involved.
Unfortunately, children are attacked even when they follow all of the dog safety rules their parents and schools have taught them.
In addition, the old common law approach is also available for injured plaintiffs. Under the traditional approach, if the owner knows or has reason to know of the dog’s violent propensities, the owner of the dog is liable for damages caused by the dog.
Do I have a case?
If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog then the owner may be held responsible for the attack and all medical bills, emotional trauma and any physical disfigurement or disabilities that are a direct result of the dog attack.
What can I do?
In all dog bite cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the incident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries.
