We recently received a call in our office from a gentleman, who was in his driveway, working on his motorcycle, when a pitbull with a reputation for biting people got loose from his neighbor’s yard, and attacked him. The injuries from the dog bite have cost him several thousand dollars in medical bills. It’s unfortunate, but dog bites happen to people all the time, and dog bites are one of the least understood aspects of the law. If you, or a loved one were bit by a dog that was out of control, you deserve to know your rights.

For the man in his driveway, he actually had several options that covered his expenses, and gave him compensation for his pain and suffering. But he had no idea what to do on his own. He needed professional, legal assistance. Since every situation is different, and timing is of the essence, you should call our office, and have a free confidential discussion about the details of your unfortunate incident.

Dog bite (from a friend)

One of my close friends called me recently and told me about his daughter who was bit by his own sister’s dog. It was a really sad story. They were at his sister’s house and his daughter had been playing all day with the dog. As they were leaving, his daughter ran to give the dog one last hug and it unexpectedly bit her face. Fortunately, it missed her eye, but she had to undergo several surgeries to repair her tear duct. She has over $10,000 in medical bills.

My friend doesn’t know what to do because the last thing he would ever consider doing is suing his sister, however, he didn’t need to have this fear. He simply needed to know his rights and understand the law. For example, in his situation, there was insurance that would cover all of his daughter’s medical bills. He just needed to know how to ask for that coverage. To his delight, it didn’t require any lawsuits. It just required our lawyers knowing how to guide him through the process.

If you or a loved one has had the unfortunate experience of being hurt by a dog, even if the dog belongs to a friend or a family member, call our office today and we can look into what civil and appropriate options are available for you.
