Pets are lovable creatures that often become treasured members of our families. But not all owners monitor or take proper care of their pets. Animal bites are common, but preventable. Pet owner negligence, such as leaving a gate open or not following leash laws, can cause dangerous animals to roam free.
Have you or your child been scratched, cut, or bitten in a vicious animal attack? See a doctor right away. Animals can carry rabies, so being examined by a medical professional is vital to your health. The bite itself can cause severe damage, as well as any infection that could potentially develop.
You should also contact an attorney who understands local laws and has extensive experience with animal attack cases. Our lawyers can help you with the details of your claim. Gather any information you can about the animal that bit you: owner name, address, and telephone number. It is also a good idea to take a picture of your wounds.
