Homeowner Liability in Animal Attack Injury Lawsuits

Dog bites are not always taken seriously. Many times the victim is accused of provoking the animal to attack. It may seem to the injured person as if no one really understands the severity of the physical pain and emotional stress that can result from a dog bite injury. At Hefferon & Hefferon, we understand.

If your or your child suffered an animal attack, mauling or dog bite injury, you know how serious these cases can be. When there is no paperwork to prove that the animal had a current rabies vaccination, victims can be required to undergo thousands of dollars of painful and frightening rabies treatments. A dog bite injury can also cause life changing scars and disfigurements.

One of the first steps we will take is to determine if the animal’s owner has insurance that can cover your medical bills and other damages. Unfortunately, it is our experience that in many of these attacks, the negligent dog owner is a renter with no homeowner’s insurance coverage and no significant assets.

Landlords may be held liable for dog bite injuries under certain circumstances. We will work hard to prove landlord negligence when reports of aggressive behavior and previous attacks have been ignored. Realistically, though, winning these cases can be an uphill battle. Discussing your case with an experienced dog bite injury lawyer who will tell you the truth, not just what you want to hear, can help you decide whether filing a lawsuit is the best thing for you and your family.
