DOG BITE ATTORNEY

A dog bite is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about what types of injuries you can get from an animal.  However, the scope of how you can be injured from animals is quite broad.  From being knocked to the ground, to being chased or even having an animal run in front of your vehicle, injuries can occur in various ways.

 

Regardless of how the injury occurs, the aftermath can be devastating. Permanent scarring or disfigurement and the need for corrective surgery are only some of the devastating effects animal injuries can cause.  As medical bills accumulate, or time passes with the daily reminder of what happened, injured victims often become frustrated or fearful of similar types of animals.

If you have been injured because of an animal, contact Presser Law, P.A. for a FREE CASE EVALUATION.  We will immediately start to investigate your case and answer any questions you may have.  You can also visit my blog for even more information regarding dog bite injuries and other topics important to injury victims.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why do dogs bite? 

The short answer is dogs are still dogs.  While dogs of any size and breed can bite someone, many times a combination of factors cause the dog to bite someone.  Those factors may include:

 

  • Heightened emotions of the dog – too excited, too scared, or too agitated
  • Lack of training around people
  • Protective of owner or territory
  • Intentional or unintentional provocation by the victim 
  • Prior abuse
  • Startled by a loud noise, fast movement, etc.

 

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but they are still dogs.  As such, they may bite you unintentionally while you are playing with them, or intentionally in an aggressive manner.  

 

What are the most common injuries from a dog bite? 

Dog bites can range from minor to severe – or even be fatal. Sometimes, if the dog bite is in response to feeling threatened, the dog may have a hard time letting go. This can result in bigger injuries. 

 

The most common injuries that occur from a dog bite are: 

 

  • Puncture wounds
  • Skin lacerations
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruises
  • Fractured bones
  • Loss of limbs
  • Death

 

What if I was injured by a dog without a bite?

Non-bite injuries are compensable.  In fact, injuries from dogs without biting are extremely common.  This typically occurs when a dog runs into someone, knocks someone down, or tangles someone in their leash.  These can result in serious injuries, such as torn ligaments, which require surgical repair.  

 

What should I do if I have been injured by a dog? 

If you have been injured by a dog, protect yourself by getting to a safe space. 

 

Depending on your injuries, you may want to call for medical attention immediately to ensure proper healing and to reduce the risk of infections. Then, if possible, take pictures of your injuries, the dog, and the scene of the attack. Gather contact information for the dog’s owner as well as any witnesses that were present. 

 

Finally, make animal control aware of the incident to prevent future attacks. 

 

How can I receive the most compensation for my dog bite injury? 

To obtain the most thorough compensation for your dog bite injury, you are going to need an experienced attorney on your side.

Justin Presser has represented my sister and I both for our separate car accidents. He is an extremely efficient, competent lawyer with great communication. It took just over 7 months for Justin to close my case and cut me my insurance check, which is much sooner than I ever would have thought. Normally these matters take at least a year or more since date of accident. He got me more money than the offered amount from insurance and I am very happy with the result. I highly recommend this law firm if you are seeking a great staff, and a motivated, focused attorney. Justin is a good man! You will be pleased with his work, just like my family and I am.
