Germantown Dog Bite Attorneys

Holding Dog Owners Accountable

Though dogs are popular pets, many dogs can be territorial and aggressive – particularly around strangers. Dog owners are responsible for their pets’ actions and must be held accountable if their dog bite and injures someone.

Whether you were approached by a dog on the street or bitten in a dog park, you have legal options to pursue compensation for your injuries. 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.

Protect Your Rights & Seek Compensation

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.

Common Injuries from Dog Bites:

  • 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.

What to Do after a Dog Bite

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

We are ready to help with your dog bite case. Call us at (901) 730-8880 or contact us online today.
