Have you or a loved one suffered from an injury due to a dog bite? This is actually a very serious and common problem! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 4.5 million Americans are victims of a dog bite each year. Of these millions, 900,000 per year need medical attention and in worst cases reconstructive surgery, or even death.
Here at the Diana Legal, we take dog bite cases (and victims), VERY seriously. There are rules in place regarding keeping a pet on a leash and not allowing a pet to roam free. Oftentimes the victim happens to be taking a walk and is attacked by a dog that is not on a leash or is roaming the neighborhood. These attacks can be traumatizing.
If you have suffered a dog bite, please notify us immediately! We can help you with your dog bite case and get you compensation for your injury. Most dog bite cases don’t go to trial and are resolved by negotiations for an out-of-court settlement.
If you or a loved one suffered a dog bite and needed costly medical treatments, then you may also need a dog bite lawyer to fight for your legal right to compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The experienced dog bite lawyers in at Diana Legal can help!
