The personal injury attorneys of the Hendricks County law firm of Michael Jeffries & Associates, LLC represent the victims of dog bites and other animal attacks. It’s estimated that approximately forty percent of all households are inhabited by at least one dog. Consequently, injuries due to dog attacks are all too common. Even relatively docile canine pets can be aggressive under certain circumstances, and factors like weight and breed do not always correlate to the severity of the injuries sustained. If you’ve been bitten or otherwise attacked by an aggressive dog, you may be entitled to compensation. The personal injury lawyers of Michael Jeffries & Associates will help you recover damages for your medical bills, pain, and suffering.
Dog Bite Personal Injury Attorneys in Central Indiana
Dog attacks on humans occur for a numbers of reasons, but the most significant factor is often owner negligence. Was the dog on a leash at the time of the attack? If so, did the owner have control over the dog’s movements? Did the canine get outside without the owner’s knowledge? Was the dog properly vaccinated? These are the types of questions that our veteran personal injury lawyers will want answered. Even in cases where the owner was not grossly negligent, they are still ultimately responsible for the injuries and damages caused by the dogs that they own. At your free consultation, our personal injury team of attorneys will examine your case to determine the level of negligence on the part of the dog’s owner. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, take photographs of the injury, the animal, and the scene to preserve crucial evidence.
