If you or your child suffered an injury from a dog bite or animal attack, you want justice. No amount of money can change what happened, but you may be able to recover compensation for the damages you suffered. However, things can get complicated with this type of personal injury accident.

For example, you may not know who the animal’s owner is. Or you may be reluctant to file a claim when the animal’s owner is a family member or friend.

Attorney Byron Browne takes a no B.S. approach. He speaks frankly and openly with all parties involved. When legal action is necessary, he will fight to secure financial compensation so that you can get the medical treatment you need for your injuries and move forward with your life.

What to do if you are attacked by a dog or other animal

It’s important to take steps that can help protect your health and safety, as well as your right to seek financial compensation.

  • Get medical attention. You can either go to the emergency room or visit an urgent medical care center. A doctor will diagnose your injuries and begin treatment. There will also be documentation of your injuries, which can help with your claim.
  • Call the police. The police can identify the animal’s owner, fill out a report, and notify animal control if necessary. Their report will provide further documentation of what happened.
  • Gather information. This includes the dog owner’s name and contact information, the dog’s name and breed, and if possible, the name of the homeowners or renters’ insurance company that represents the owner.
  • Take photos. This includes photos and video of the dog or other animal, the location of the attack, and any visible injuries that you suffered.
  • Consult a lawyer. An experienced personal injury lawyer can review the details of your case, explain your rights, go over your legal options for recovering compensation, and answer any questions you have.

A dog bite lawyer who understands the stakes

Byron Browne knows the impact a dog bite or animal attack can have on victims. Dogs have powerful jaws and a bite can easily puncture skin, cause nerve and tissue damage, and even lead to broken bones. Victims can be left with disfiguring injuries and suffer emotional and psychological trauma.

But recovering compensation is not easy. Dog owners may deny doing anything wrong or argue that their dog was provoked somehow. Insurance companies aren’t on your side, either. They may deny any liability at all, or they will use tactics to try to limit the compensation you receive. This may include offering you a settlement that falls far short of covering your damages.

We think you deserve better. Attorney Byron Browne knows the games that insurance companies play and doesn’t put up with them.
