The danger of dog bites

A dog bite can result in very serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, you should take action immediately. After you are bitten, seek medical attention to reduce the risk of developing a serious infection. The next step is to call us for help. We have over 30 years of experience in these types of cases.

The outcome of your case will be determined by a number of factors.

One of the most important things to consider is the "One-Bite Rule."

This is an old law that can be used to protect dog owners from legal responsibility until they are made aware that their dog is dangerous

or vicious. If the owner is aware, they will be held responsible.

The "One-Bite Rule"

In many states the "One-Bite Rule" has been altered or completely eliminated in order to make dog owners fully responsible. However if the victim trespassed on the property or provoked the dog, the owner is not responsible. The specific laws in state where the incident occurred will make a big difference.
