Preventing dog bites and most attacks against friends and family members in this country is avoidable in the vast majority of cases. Unfortunately, accidents involving dog attacks are extremely common even with proper obedience training. Dog bite injuries can be fatal, and millions of dog bites occur every year, with many occurring in California and Texas, where many dogs roam freely. If you’ve lost a loved one or they suffered catastrophic injuries or deaths due to a dog attack we can help. You can file a claim against the dog owner and potentially sue neighbors and even their landlord over this deadly aggression to protect your rights to maximum compensation on behalf of a bitten child, adult or infant suffering harm or death.
