Dog bites and animal attacks are always traumatic to the victim, regardless of age. Whether you were attacked by a dog that seemed friendly or a vicious dog that escaped from its owner’s yard, or you were injured in any other type of animal attack, you may suffer extreme emotional distress as well as pain and disabling or disfiguring injuries.
After an attack, you should seek immediate medical care, photograph your injuries, and then contact a knowledgeable attorney immediately to see if you have a right to compensation for your injuries.

We analyze your case to determine the best path of recovery, whether the recovery is directly from the dog owner or through any homeowners’ insurance policies that may cover dog bite injuries.
