Help For Dog Bite Victims
The victim in a dog attack can be left with physical scars as well as lasting psychological fears. If you or a family member has been bitten by a dog, our lawyers can help you obtain compensation from the homeowner’s insurance of the dog owner. Contact our firm for a consultation.
Dogs, especially dangerous breeds such as Pit Bulls, have powerful jaw muscles and can inflict serious injuries on their victims. Through a premises liability claim for damages, dog bite victims can receive compensation for medical bills, plastic surgery, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and permanent scarring. Children who are victims of dog bites can receive counseling to help them overcome their fear of dog attacks.
In Louisiana, the owner of the dog is liable for any dog attack unless the dog was provoked by the victim. In other types of situations where an animal attacks or a dog bites, the injured person has to prove that the owner knew the animal had a propensity to attack and failed to exercise reasonable care.
Our lawyers are particularly qualified to handle dog bite claims because of our years of experience and understanding of our opponents. Our lawyers know how insurance companies handle and defend against dog bite claims, which enables us to be more effective advocates for our injured clients.
