Each year, approximately 4.6 million Americans are bitten by dogs, and about 20 percent of these individual require some kind of medical attention to treat their dog bite injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While nearly half of all dog bite incidents reportedly occur on the dog owner’s property, dog bite attacks can happen anywhere, and victims should know that they have rights and may be entitled to compensation after a dog bite attack.
At Brown & Brown Attorneys at Law, our St. Louis dog bite lawyers have extensive experience defending the rights of those who have been bitten or attacked by dogs, and we are dedicated to helping dog bite victims obtain the maximum possible compensation for their injuries and losses. Some of the specific types of cases that our skilled lawyers have a proven track record of successfully handling include (but are not limited to) cases that involve:
- Physical dog bite injuries
- Emotional dog bite injuries
- Dog bite victims who are children or babies
- Dog bites or attacks that occur at dog parks
- Dog bites or attacks that occur on property owned by a business or another landlord (rather than by the dog owner him- or herself).
