In a split second, a child’s life can be forever changed by a dog bite. These injuries are no joke, and can leave lasting physical and emotional injuries on all victims, especially children. The dog or animal owner must take responsibility for the actions of the animal and is liable for compensating the victim for their losses.
After a dog bite, your injury should be evaluated and treated by medical personnel. Also, any evidence must be preserved in order to build a case against the owner of the dog or animal that bit you. We can begin gathering evidence and investigating the case immediately after being retained as your legal counsel.
