Unfortunately, when a dog bites once, they will usually try to bite again. Dog bites can be especially vicious and can have complications including infection, rabies and scarring.

Our firm is experienced in investigating all the circumstances surrounding a dog bite attack and we can provide evidence for your case that shows the negligence of the owner by not controlling or properly containing their dog or dogs.
Dog bites can result in broken bones, torn muscles and ligaments and scarring. Along with emergency medical care it is often necessary to receive plastic surgery to repair the damage. It is our goal to seek the justice and financial settlement you deserve for your injuries. In some rare but severe cases, often involving small children, dog bite attacks can be fatal. In cases such as these the family has the right to file a wrongful death claim to compensate them for their loss, pain and suffering.
