The lawyers and staff at Mayo Law love dogs, but we know that any dog can become dangerous and bite. We are committed to helping dog bite and animal attack victims.
Owners are responsible for their dogs’ actions. Dog owners must obey the leash laws and dog bite laws in their place of residence and in any place they visit with their dogs.
You will not necessarily be facing the dog owner when you file a dog bite legal claim, which may relieve victims injured by an animal owned by a friend or family member. Our attorneys will go up against the insurance company providing coverage to the dog owner in most cases.
Why Do Dogs Bite?
Some dogs are raised in environments where aggressive behavior is encouraged or rewarded, while others are easily bothered because of old age or illness. Mayo Law has organized some statistics and information that might help you prevent dog bites.
Any dog can bite. However, certain dog breeds tend to be more likely to cause injuries
- Doberman Pinschers
- German Shepherds
- Pit Bulls
- Siberian Huskies
- And many more…
Most dogs will live their lives without hurting anyone. Dog attacks can be very scary and distressing. For example, a common injury associated with dog attacks is scarring on the face, which can be a lasting reminder of the incident.
