According to a recent report by the CDC, more than 4.5 million Americans are the victims of dog bite attacks each year. Nearly 20 percent of all dog bite victims require medical attention and tens of thousands require major reconstructive surgery as a result of dog bite attacks.

Dog Bite Injuries
People who have been attacked by a dog may suffer lacerations, nerve damage, scarring and disfigurement. Dog bite victims may also suffer psychological injuries such as anxiety, or even post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the most severe cases, dog bite victims may suffer fatal injuries.
Dog bite victims may incur significant medical costs, which may include a trip to a doctor's office, hospital or even an emergency room. When dog bite victims suffer severe scarring or disfigurement, they may require cosmetic or reconstructive surgery that can be very costly. Some dog bite victims may even require counseling services if they suffer severe anxiety as a result of a particularly violent dog attack.
Get the Vigorous Representation You Require
The owner of the dog who bit you may have a homeowner's insurance policy that provides coverage for injuries caused by dog bite attacks. If the responsible party is represented by an insurance defense attorney, you can be certain that the attorney will attempt to deny liability or significantly limit the compensation you receive.
Our attorneys have experience successfully obtaining compensation on behalf of dog bite victims. We take time to gather evidence which is necessary to establish liability and prove the full extent our clients' injuries and losses. You can rely on us to vigorously pursue the full and fair compensation you are entitled to receive. As a client of our firm, you will have a strong advocate on your side.
