Dog bites can cause disfigurement, nerve damage, and infections if not properly treated. And, when children are involved, the psychological effects of being attacked by a dog can be long lasting. With extensive experience and resources, the Moher Law Group has the ability and knowledge necessary to help individuals recover substantial damages due to dog bites. Of course, there’s no way of attaching a dollar amount to losing one’s sense of safety and confidence after the trauma of being attacked by a dog. That’s why our attorneys consult with medical experts, psychiatrists, and animal trainers to establish dog owner liability and the scope of injuries suffered by our clients.
Building and Protecting Your Dog Bite Injury Case
If you, your child, or someone you know has been bitten by a dog, it’s important that you contact us right away to discuss your case. While people often have up to two years after an attack to pursue legal action, it is important to preserve evidence and document injuries for insurance companies and the court. Taking some of the following steps can help ensure the strength of your case:
- Determine if dog has bitten others
- Take pictures of your injuries immediately
- Keep copies of medical reports and medical bills
- Take pictures of enclosure or property where dog is kept
- Continue to take pictures of bites as the wounds begin to heal
