Bitten By A Dog? We Can Help
Dogs are generally very friendly creatures, but in the hands of an irresponsible owner, a dog can be a menace. Vicious dogs that are allowed to run without a leash, or that are allowed to come into contact with the general public, can cause severe injuries when they bite and maim during an attack. Depending on the breed of dog and the dog’s temperament at the time of the attack, the injuries caused by dog bites can range from fairly minor to quite serious. In some cases, significant blood loss or organ damage from severe dog bites have led to the death of the victim.
Holding Owners Responsible For Their Pets
The are many laws in place that govern dog ownership, and irresponsible owners can be held liable for the damage their animals do. In the event that you or a loved one were injured by a dog during an attack, you may be able to hold the owner of the animal responsible for what happened, and you may have the right to seek compensation for hospital bills, surgeries, medical care, disability, lost wages or emotional trauma caused by the attack.

Pit Bulldog Attack Litigation is a trial chapter authored by Gregg Y. Neal. This article was written by Mr. Neal after he represented a small child who was getting his first haircut when a pit bull came into the room, attacked the child and bit off part of his ear. After trial began and Mr. Neal described the horror and trauma of the child to the jury, the case settled. The chapter is published at 33 Am. Jur. Trials page 195.
