Animal Bites / Dog Bites

Areas of Practice



Animal bites and dog bites can be very traumatic and can cause serious injuries including permanent scarring and even death in some cases. Unfortunately, the majority of animal/dog bites involve children. This occurs because children are smaller, they are usually unfamiliar with animals/dogs and are unable to protect themselves. Children often sustain injuries to the face which can result in permanent emotional and physical scarring.

Animal owners may be liable for a victim’s bite injuries if they knew, or had reason to know, of their animal’s dangerous propensities. To establish a strict liability animal bite claim for a personal injury, the injured victim must show that the animal caused a “severe injury,” and acted without provocation.
