Dog Bites

Every year, millions of Americans are bitten by dogs.  Dog bite claims fall under the umbrella of personal injury law, where the injured party has the legal right to seek monetary compensation for injuries caused by another party's actions or negligence.

If you are involved in a dog bite incident, obtaining pertinent information about the dog, its owner, and any witnesses is crucial. You should also report the incident to the local police.

In general, a dog bite victim has the right to seek monetary compensation for his or her injury from any party whose negligence caused the dog bite, any party in violation of leash or restraint laws or any party who knowingly harbors a dog with a history of biting people.

If you have been bitten by a dog, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages as a result of this injury, but determining your legal rights can be complicated.  It may be unclear who you should bring a claim against and the damages to which you are entitled. To ensure that you receive just compensation, consult our personal injury attorneys to discuss your situation and your legal right to monetary compensation for your injuries.
