Helpings Victims of Dog Attacks and Dog Bites That Injure Your Loved Ones
Even if dog owners obey the leash law, strict liability attaches to dog bites except when an animal is tormented by an adult. In other words, a dog does not have to be unleashed for an owner to be liable. Even if an animal is leashed and behind a fence, if a small child or adult wanders into the yard and is bitten, the owner’s insurance company may be liable for any personal injuries that occur as a result.
The personal injury attorneys at Aiken & Aiken represent clients seeking damages for the following kinds of physical injuries caused by a dog bite or attack:
- Loss of an eye
- Facial injuries
- Loss of fingers or toes
- Infection that results from dog bite
- Severe cuts and lacerations
Do Not Be Afraid to Demand Compensation
Most people are reluctant to sue a neighbor or friend when a dog bite injures themselves or their children. Many mistakenly believe they are suing the owner for damages when in fact, it is the dog owner’s insurance company that often must pay for damages.
As dog bite attorneys, we have years of experience in dealing with insurance companies. We are prepared to consult with medical professionals, economic impact analysts and animal experts in determining the cause and scope of your injuries. A vicious dog attack can cause severe injuries that last a lifetime — don’t be saddled with medical bills that should be someone else’s responsibility.
