Compensation for Dog Bite Victims

by | December 11th, 2017

To many people, dogs are members of the family. We have them in our homes, and we see them in public spaces, too. But no matter how well-trained and docile a dog acts, it still has the capacity to cause serious harm if it attacks.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we know that dog bites often happen when people least expect them—including both victims and dog owners. Dogs with no history of biting or aggression can suddenly lash out, even without provocation. Dog bite victims can suffer debilitating and even disabling injuries that may result in severe bleeding, infection, and nerve damage.

Our Norfolk dog bite lawyers know how serious dog bite injuries can be. That’s why we fight to help victims get compensation for things like:

  • Medical bills – Dog bite victims often require stitches and intensive wound care, while some may even need surgery to clear out infection and repair nerve damage.
  • Lost wages – Many dog bites occur on the legs, arms, and hands. When those parts of a person’s body become damaged or disabled, it can affect their ability to work, leaving them without the income they rely on to support themselves and their families.

We know the ins-and-outs of dog bite laws and local ordinances throughout Virginia concerning leashes, enclosures, and other guidelines for dogs on private and public property. Don’t suffer alone after a dog bite injury. Get the help you deserve. Call today for a free consultation.
