Bitten by a Dog or Other Animal?
The animal that bit you was out of control — and you know the owner should be held responsible. In most cases, if you are asked into someone’s house or onto their property, they have the legal responsibility to assure that the property is safe, including ensuring that their animal is safe as well. Animal attacks can produce dramatic, life-threatening injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous animal, contact the personal injury lawyers at Mooney & Associates. Under the umbrella of dog bites and animal attacks, we have litigated cases that include:
- Dog bite medical bills
- Dog bite severe injuries
- Dog bite child injuries
- Dog bite scarring injuries
- Slips & Falls
If you or a loved one suffered a dog bite or animal attack, you may be entitled to recover damages as a result. Dog bites to children, in particular, can be both physically and emotionally traumatic. Not just for the child too, but for the parents as well. Determining your legal rights, however, can be complicated. It may be unclear as to whom you should bring a claim against and to what sort of settlement you are entitled. It is important to seek medical care immediately, contact state health department and dog law enforcement officials, and take pictures and save them. We have experience winning cases and securing settlements for clients who have been injured by dog bites or animal attacks. To ensure that you receive full compensation, you should contact the personal injury attorneys of Mooney & Associates for a free consultation.
