Injuries or attacks by other animals

In addition to dog bite or dog mauling cases, we also handle cases involving animal attacks. If you suffered a bite by a household pet such as a cat, snake, or other exotic pet you may be entitled to significant compensation. Contact us for an initial consultation or to begin an investigation in your case.

If you or someone you love has been bit or attacked:

  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible, including possible treatment for rabies.
  • Identify the dog and the dog’s owner if possible
  • Contact local police department and animal control to file a report or see that the dog is taken into custody
  • Contact the County to begin an investigation of your injury and attack
  • Take names and contact information for any witnesses
  • Take pictures of the injuries or wounds
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and claims
  • Do not talk to an insurance representative or settle without first consulting with an experienced lawyer

Intensive investigations and evidence preservation in dog bite cases

At your initial consultation we will begin gathering evidence for your case. We will contact witnesses, retrieve police reports, medical documentation, photographs, and other necessary evidence for your case. It is important to consult with an attorney to ensure that the evidence in your case is recovered and preserved before negotiations, settlement, or trial. All evidence can be powerful leverage to ensure that you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
