An individual who suffers through an animal attack will likely struggle with both physical and emotional injuries. The physical injuries can be healed through doctor visits or even plastic surgery. The emotional scars, however, could take years to heal — if ever. As your attorney, it is our goal to fight for your full and fair compensation for the injuries you have sustained from a dog attack.
Since 1993, our Glendale dog bite attorneys at The Law Offices of John Phebus have guided clients through the process of recovering monetary compensation. When a dog bites or attacks a person, the owner can be held liable for the damages. This liability is often covered by the dog owner’s homeowners insurance.
Many people are uneasy with the idea of suing a neighbor or friend to recover compensation for a dog attack. Let us handle the legality of the situation. We will work directly with the insurance carrier to negotiate a beneficial settlement that includes damages for lost wages, medical treatment, and pain and suffering. Schedule a free consultation at our offices with our Glendale personal injury lawyer to discuss your unique situation in greater detail.
Peoria Animal Attack Lawyers
An animal attack can encompass bites, scratches or knockdowns. Attacks can lead to numerous serious injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Multiple lacerations
- Tendon or ligament damage
- Torn muscle
In addition to adults, our Glendale dog bite lawyers represent clients who have had their children attacked by a dog. Children are more susceptible to attack by virtue of their playful nature and inability to recognize an animal’s warning signs. To a small child, a dog bite can be life-threatening and lead to lifelong scarring. It is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
