Dog Bites

Dogs are wonderful companion animals when they are raised responsibly, but far too often dog owners are negligent in the way that they keep their animals. Every year there are roughly five million people who become the victim of dog bites and attacks, and of that number nearly one fifth end up requiring medical attention at a hospital or from a physician. To make matters worse, nearly six in ten of those injuries happen to children, who not only are more vulnerable to attack because of their small size, but who also may end up with more devastating injuries. Dog bite injuries can cause death, and do in about two dozen cases a year.

If a dog has injured you or someone you love then you are entitled to any expenses or damages that were incurred as a result of the attack. Reinherz & Reinherz have been helping people file lawsuits against negligent dog owners for many years. People who own dogs are required by law to have full control of their dogs at all times. Dogs must be leashed or restrained in order to keep people safe, and if a dog is known to pose a danger then they owner needs to take precautions against bites or attacks. If they failed to do so then they not only broke the law but are also responsible for your injuries and the expenses that they caused.

Dog attacks can lead to a number of injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Severed fingers or limbs
  • Facial injuries
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma
  • Death

The expenses involved in these injuries can go far beyond doctors’ bills and medical expenses. Victims of dog attacks can endure mental anguish as well as pain. They may have to take time away from work or family members may lose income taking care of the person that has been attacked.

Reinherz & Reinherz have years of experience providing compassionate, competent legal help for victims of dog bites and attacks. We understand how upsetting and frightening the experience is and we want to help you win the compensation you deserve for the injuries you suffered and let you move on past this event.
