Dog Bites Cause Scars, Facial Disfigurement, Even Death-Call a Tough Personal Injury Lawyer

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, dogs bite approximately 4.5 million people every year in the United State. Of those, nearly one in five who are attacked-more than 885,000 people-require medical treatment of some kind, with tens of thousands requiring reconstructive surgery. Shockingly, there are dozens of dog attack fatalities every year as well, which constitutes a wrongful death lawsuit. Dog bites are responsible for over a third of all homeowner insurance liability claims, because dog owners' property insurance is there to provide compensation for dog bite victims. Very often, however, people who are bit by a dog do not know how to go about pursuing a dog bite settlement and often feel as intimidated by the dog owner as they were by the dog itself. That's where we come in. We will do all the research necessary to find the owner of the hostile dog that bit you and hold that person responsible. As Rhode Island and Massachusetts personal injury attorneys for over 30 years, when it comes to defending our clients, we're far more aggressive than any dog and will work hard to obtain justice on your behalf.

A Child Bit by a Dog Can Have Costly Medical Injuries-Let Us Fight For Your Family's Rights

Kids bitten by dogs are much more vulnerable than adults, particularly youngsters under ten years of age. With dogs on the loose in residential neighborhoods throughout the entire Providence, RI, Foxborough and Fall River, MA region, we hear about children injured by dog bites all too often. We have great compassion for anyone who was attacked by a dog, because we've seen the lifelong emotional trauma and physical hardship it can cause.
