Dogs can be man’s best friend, but vicious attacks by dogs or other dangerous animals can cause serious injuries, especially when the victim is a child. If a dog you do not own bit or injured you or a family member, you may have a right to compensation for your medical bills and expenses. All dog owners are liable for injuries which their animal causes, so long as you were lawfully on the property where you were attacked.
Our Louisville personal injury attorneys at Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC can help to gather sufficient evidence to prove fault, as well as to illustrate the damages. Negligent dog owners should not be allowed to get away with their actions and we are committed to seeking justice for you and your family.
Many dog attacks frequently involve injuries to the head and neck, which may involve serious, permanent side-effects. Your vision or hearing may be affected, unsightly scarring may be evident, and you may require multiples surgeries. You may also experience emotional turmoil from the disfigurement and scarring which could last a lifetime. Animal bites, scratches, or attacks can also cause rabies and infections, which leads to additional need for medical care.
Whether the animal is naturally violent, dangerous, or unleashed, it is up to our Louisville dog bite attorneys to prove fault and ensure you receive the care you need. If you have been injured as a result of a dog or animal, please reach out to our firm today.
