Help For Those Injured By Dogs Or Other Animals

Dog owners and the owners of exotic pets such as big cats, apes and other types of animals have a responsibility to keep people safe from their animals. In terms of dogs, many communities have leash laws that require a dog to be restrained at all times.

If you or your child was bitten by a dog or seriously injured in an attack by some other type of pet, we can help you effectively pursue the compensation you will need for your recovery.

Did A Dog Attack Your Child?

Children are especially vulnerable to dog attacks. Because of their smaller size, they are less able to defend themselves against an attack. Their smaller size also means that wounds may be concentrated on the face and neck. These are parts of the body where a dog bite can create serious and lasting injury and scarring. A child with facial scarring or scarring on the neck may have self-esteem difficulties. Plastic surgery may be in order. We can help you secure the compensation necessary to help your child.

Is There Insurance Coverage?

This is one of the first questions that needs to be answered. While many homeowner's policies in the past provided coverage for dog bites, many insurance policies today have exclusion policies for these sorts of claims. We can rapidly identify if there is coverage that can address your needs.
