Dog Bite Attorneys
Sarasota Dog Bite Attorneys
Most dog owners treat their pets like a part of their family, showering them with love and affection. However, not all dogs are so lucky. Some owners neglect or abuse their pets, which can lead to unprovoked aggression. We believe that most dog bites are caused by the actions of irresponsible owners, rather than by “evil” dogs. However, accidents also happen, and sometimes even the most well-cared-for pet can unexpectedly snap.
Whatever the cause, if you or a loved one is the victim of a dog bite or a full-on attack, you’re likely to suffer from more than just physical damage. The emotional pain and trauma of a dog bite can last a lifetime. Our Sarasota Dog Bite Attorneys will fight for your rights and help you get the maximum possible compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Call us today to schedule your free case review. We’re available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
Sarasota Animal Attacks Attorneys
The damage caused by dog bites and animal attacks is often difficult to repair. Victims usually need multiple surgeries to close up the wounds and reduce scarring. If ligaments or tendons are severed, the bites could result in a permanent disability.
While the physical damage will eventually heal and the scars will fade with time, the mental impact is not as easy to treat. It’s common for phobias and fears to develop. Overcoming these issues sometimes requires years of therapy, and bite victims are often never the same again.
If the dog that bit you belongs to a family member or friend, you may be hesitant to consult with an attorney. However, it’s important to remember that in almost all cases it’s the insurance company — not the pet owner, who will pay for your damages.
Our team of Sarasota Dog Bite Attorneys knows how to stand up to big insurance companies to ensure that you get the money you need to recover physically, mentally, and financially after a dog bite. Call us at (941) 954-4000 to discuss your case and learn more about why we’re the go-to firm for Sarasota dog bite victims.
What can Sarasota Dog Bite Attorneys do for me after an attack?
People love their pets, and most pet owners take very good care of their animals. A lot of families consider their dogs part of the family. Sadly, not all owners care for their pets. When this happens animals can become scared and angry. Unfortunately, when animals attack, it can get ugly. So, what can Sarasota Dog Bite Attorneys do for you after an attack? Well, for starters we can work to get you paid so that you don’t eat the cost of the medical expenses.
See, these types of injuries usually require plastic surgery. Too often victims will need multiple surgeries to repair the damage. If ligaments or tendons are severed you could end up with a life long disability.
However, it’s not just the physical damage that causes pain and frustration. While you may go through surgeries to repair and heal esthetic injuries, mental injuries can last a lifetime. People tend to build phobias and hold onto fears permanently after tragic events like dog bites and animal attacks. If a child or young one is attacked they may never be the same again. We fight to get you financially compensated so that you can obtain the medical help you need to fully recover, both physically and mentally, after a dog bite.
