Building A Case Against A Negligent Dog Owner
Every dog bite case is different. In general, we build a successful case against negligent dog owners by:
- Determining responsibility: Liability can be questionable depending on whether the animal has had vicious propensities or has attacked before. We diligently investigate the animal's history and uncover any information that would assist in your claim. Depending on the individual circumstances under which the attack took place, you may have a case against the animal's owner, the veterinary hospital or other premises where the attack occurred, or another party.
- Hiring expert witnesses: Our lawyers understand the importance of working with other attorneys and experts to determine the appropriate approach to take in dog bite cases.
- Retaining an experienced legal team: You are in good hands at Goldberg Sager & Associates. Our lawyers have nearly 60 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases and have established a reputation for successful outcomes. We exhaust every option available to reach a fair resolution for your case.
If you suffered an injury from a dog attack or an animal bite, you may be entitled to damages for past and future medical costs, long-term medical care, permanent disfigurement or scarring, pain and suffering, lost wages and earning potential, and any other losses sustained in your attack.
