Dog Bite Injuries
At The Breslo Law Firm, we handle a wide range of personal injury claims, including those involving dog bite injuries. Pet owners, especially those who own dangerous dog breeds, have an obligation to leash, fence and otherwise keep their dogs from harming other people.
Dog attacks can result in serious injuries, including:
- Puncture wounds
- Facial scars
- Facial disfigurement
- Nerve damage
Remember, the state imposes strict liability on dog owners for damages suffered by any person as a result of their dog’s actions. This means that unless the dog was provoked, the owner, or the owner’s homeowner’s insurance, is responsible for the resulting injuries.
Children and Dog Bite Attacks
The most common victims of dog bite attacks are children. Children are prone to wandering into neighbors’ yards where they might encounter vicious dogs. Children move and act playfully and erratically, which can frighten dogs. But it is the dog owner’s responsibility to keep their animals from attacking and injuring children. If your child has been injured because of the negligent actions of a dog owner, our attorneys are here to help.
