At Snider & Horner, PLLC, we are familiar with the laws regarding a dog owner’s obligations to control their pet. We are not afraid to pursue justice on your behalf whether we can settle through negotiations or have to take your case to court.

Get started on your case today by calling us at (901) 730-8880. We offer free consultations for personal injury cases.

Understanding Your Rights After a Dog Attack

Dog bites can happen to anyone at any time, but children are particularly susceptible to dog bites as they are more likely to approach or pet a dog they do not know.

Potential injuries sustained from dog bites include:

  • Infections
  • Rabies
  • Bone fractures
  • Tetanus
  • Facial trauma
  • Psychological damage

No one should have to live with the physical and emotional trauma that results from a dog bite. Though we cannot take back what happened, we can help you fight for the financial compensation you need to heal from this experience.

Steps to Take Following a Dog Bite Incident

Immediately after a dog bite incident, it is important that you follow the proper protocol both for your own safety and to ensure that you do not affect your potential success in a civil lawsuit.

We recommend that you:

  • Find the owner of the animal, tell them what happened, and exchange contact information
  • Contact local authorities if you cannot find the dog’s owner
  • Seek medical attention and request notes/documentation from the doctor
  • Take several pictures of the dog and of your injury as soon as possible
  • Consult with an attorney to discuss your legal recourse
