Dog Bite Injuries to Children
Did a Dog Bite Your Child?
Dogs and children are generally a perfect match. Both can be full of energy, fun loving, and carefree. However, many of the dog bite cases we see involve children. Sometimes kids aren't aware of the warning signs displayed by an aggressive dog. This can lead to an attack, causing serious injury and even permanent scarring. We're here to help. We'll make sure your questions are answered and you get the financial compensation your child needs.

Because dog bites inflict serious wounds and create lasting scars, we'll help you plan for your child's future. We'll examine potential medical costs and corrective surgery for your child's scars. It's important to consider these things after your child's injury. Most surgeries to correct scarring aren't covered by health insurance.
Our attorneys will start you down the road to recovering the money you and your family deserve. Without an attorney, the dog owner's insurance company may try to force a low-ball settlement on you. Some insurance companies will offer less than 1/4 of what they would offer to you if you had legal representation. Hiring our experienced dog bite attorneys will help you recover all the money your child deserves.
Who's Responsible For My Child's Injuries?
Most states have leash laws that pet owners are required to follow. When a dog bites, chases, or attacks another person or dog, the pet owner is responsible for their dog's aggressive behavior. Since they are financially responsible, their homeowner's insurance policy covers any dog bites that take place.
In most of the dog bite cases we see, the owner and victim know each other. We know a common concern that most victims have is whether or not they'll be "suing" a friend or family member. We can assure you that the dog owner's insurance company will be financially responsible – not your friend, neighbor, or family member.
We'll fight to recover compensation from the insurance company for your child's bills, including:
- Current Medical Bills
- Hospital Fees
- Future Surgeries or Rehabilitation
- Pain and Suffering
- Missed Time at Work (from caring for your child)
- And More
