Home Dog Bites & Animal Attacks

Connecticut Dog Bite & Animal Attack Attorneys

Dog bites account for over 5 million avoidable injuries annually. Our investigations routinely find that the dog is not to blame but rather a failure to properly care for or monitor the dog by its owner is the cause of the avoidable harm. Simply followed safety precautions on the part of owners would avoid over 95% of attacks. Regrettably we see time and time again that owners are unwilling or unable to make these simple changes.

Avoidable Serious Injury Result From Dog Mauling

Annually ten to twenty percent of dog bite victims die as a result of their wounds the majority of this percentage being children. Owning an animal is great fun and can be extremely rewarding but comes with the responsibility of caring for and controlling the animal. Failure to do so can lead to tragic avoidable loss.

How We Approach Representation of Victims of Dog Bites and Other Animal Attacks

We work with local animal control authorities to document mistreatment of animals and document owner neglect and failures. We have animal behavioral experts to review the nature of your attack and the environment in which the attack occurred. The preservation of evidence and investigation early on more often than not leads to favorable pre-litigation outcomes for our clients. Our Connecticut personal injury attorneys are more than capable of seeing your claim through trial if necessary and we find this ability often leads to faster and more favorable resolutions for our clients. Rarely does our investigation find a bad dog, but often we find bad or negligent owners.
