Animal bites are another type of legal claim that relates to the ownership of property. Just as it can be negligent to have a property hazard that will cause people to fall when they come on the property, it can also be negligent to have a dog, horse or other animal where it creates a hazard to people coming onto the property. So too can liability arise from an animal (which is treated as an item of property) escaping from a property where it is usually kept safe and secure.
An animal attack is a frightening event to experience. The bite of a dog or other animal or the sudden kick of a horse can result in severe injury and permanent scarring, or in the case of small children may result in death. If you or a family member has been bitten by a dog or other type of animal due to the owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation. An owner may be found negligent for not keeping an animal contained or not supevising the animal responsibly. We have represented people injured by dogs, horses, and even a bull that escaped from a pen in a game and wildlife facility. Again, we are always available to consult with you on this type of injury case. The initial consultation is free and if we accept your case we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not charge a fee until we obtain money for you.
