Thousands of people in the United States are injured by dog bites every year. Dog bite injuries are the most common type of injuries by animals that the experienced personal injury lawyers at Seiden & Kaufman handle.
Dog bite cases are won by proving that the dog’s owner had knowledge of the dog’s dangerous or vicious nature.
There are various ways to establish an owner’s knowledge of a dog’s vicious tendencies. In past dog bite cases that we have successfully handled, we established the owner’s liability by proving that the dog had bitten someone previously, the dog regularly and aggressively barked, growled, and bared its teeth, the dog needed to be routinely restrained in a certain manner, and/or the dog’s owner had “Beware of Dog” signs on its property.
A prompt, thorough investigation is essential to obtain a successful result in a dog bite action.
