Dog Attacks Cause Serious Injuries

Dog bites should not be taken lightly. An animal attack can result in serious physical and emotional injuries. If you or loved one has been injured by a dog bite, the owner of the animal is responsible for the damage caused by their aggressive dog.

We work with a full range of injuries caused by dog bites, including matters involving:

  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Severed digits
  • Facial scarring
  • Loss of vision
  • Other serious injuries

Dog Bite FAQ

  • Who pays for a dog bite injury from a police dog?
    Suing for a police dog bite injury is extremely difficult because police dogs effectively have the same legal immunities as the officers who work with them. If you were bitten by a police dog while you were committing a crime, such as resisting arrest, then you might have no way to demand compensation for your injuries. However, if you were bitten by a police dog while you were not committing a crime, then you could potentially sue your city for police brutality. This process is intricate and can have brief statutes of limitations, as short as 30 days in some areas. It is highly advised that you work with an attorney immediately if you are hurt by a K-9 unit.
  • What damages are recoverable from a dog bite injury?
    You can sue for damages related to your medical care and lost wages if you are bitten by someone’s dog. You can also demand damages related to your pain and suffering. Dog bite survivors are often traumatized by the attack and become acutely afraid of all dogs, even dogs that they know and love. If you are struggling with a new fear of dogs since your attack, then you should tell our attorneys because that fear could greatly add to the value of your case.
  • What will happen to the dog if I report an attack or dog bite?
    Many people don’t want to file a dog bite claim because they are worried that the dog will be destroyed. You should know that few courts require a dog to be destroyed after it bites someone, even if there is clear proof that the dog was aggressive. Judges usually want to explore alternative solutions, like mandatory dog training, improved fencing around the owner’s property, and so on.
