An estimated 4.7 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs on an annual basis. Children have higher rates of dog bites than adults. Approximately one out of every six bites is serious enough to require medical attention. Some dog attacks can be fatal.
Deciding who is responsible for a dog bite or attack means focusing on the behavior and knowledge of the dog owner, not looking simply at the breed of the dog. Prior knowledge of unprovoked bites or attacks can mean legal liability regardless of the dog's breed.
We represent our clients in dog bite cases on a contingency fee basis. We generally advance all expenses in pursuing the claim and do not expect repayment unless there is a recovery. If we recovery nothing, you owe us nothing.
