Dog Bite Attorneys

Dog owners take legal responsibility for the actions of their pets, including attacks on people. If a dog attacks a person, the animal’s owner is usually held responsible for failing to keep the dog properly restrained. Considering that these incidents can leave a person with serious injuries that may require substantial medical care, especially in cases of infection, an injured individual may be left with a heavy financial burden as a result of their dog bite injuries. Fortunately, compensation may be available.

If your injuries were sustained in a dog bite incident, we may be able to assist you in filing a claim against the responsible owner for financial compensation for the costs of your injury. To discuss your options in further detail with an experienced legal advisor, contact a Superior dog bites attorney of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.

Legal Claims against Negligent Dog Owners

It’s widely understood that dog owners need to carefully restrain their pets whenever the safety of another person may be at stake. This responsibility goes beyond just the proper use of a leash, however. The following instances of negligence may lead to a dog bite:

  • Failure to properly use a leash in public
  • Failure to build a fence around private property to restrain a dog
  • Failure to patch holes or breaks in a fence, allowing a dog to escape
  • Failure to keep an aggressive dog away from children

While an owner may not be held responsible in all instances of a dog attack, such as when the dog is provoked by the person, these are cases in which it is likely that the owner will be held accountable.
