Dog Bites

Have you been harmed or attacked by a dog?

While dogs may be our best friends, sometimes they can cause harm.  Injuries can be caused by dogs when they bite or attack, but also when they behave in a manner that poses a menace to the safety of persons and other domestic animals. 

The owner of a dog is liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by the dog on another person or domestic animal, under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act.   The liability of the owner does not depend upon knowledge of the propensity of the dog or fault or negligence on the part of the owner.  If you or a loved one have been injured by a dog, you have the right to bring a civil claim for compensation for your harms and losses

When you have a legal matter and need to hire a lawyer, you may be able to pay for these services on a contingency basis. That means you only pay legal fees if you receive money because your case wins or you get a negotiated settlement. Please see our Contingency Fee section for answers to frequently asked questions and see each lawyer’s individual biography for their maximum contingency fee rates.
