Dog Bite Lawyer in West Virginia

Dog bite attacks often cause serious injuries, including bruising, laceration and severe bleeding, and the victim may be left with disfiguring scars which will last a lifetime. A large percentage of dog bite victims are children, who are usually helpless to defend against the attack. Pit bulls, Rottweilers and German Shepherds are among the most common breeds known to attack people, though any type of dog is capable of vicious or violent behavior. An attorney from the firm will represent you as the case progresses, from filing your claim and negotiating with the insurance company to fighting for your right to compensation in court if that is what it takes to achieve a successful outcome. Contact our firm today!

Contact a personal injury lawyer if you have suffered a dog attack!

Have you suffered a dog attack? You may be entitled to a settlement for your injuries, including compensation for emergency medical bills, reconstructive surgery, lost wages during your recovery and damages for your pain and suffering. It is also possible to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the owner in cases of fatal dog attacks. A West Virginia personal injury attorney from The Fitzsimmons Law Firm can advise you of your legal rights against the dog owner and help you begin work on a claim today. The firm has successfully recovered in excess of half a billion dollars over the past 30 years in verdicts and settlements, and they are ready to fight for you.

We live in a strict liability state, so the dog owner can be held legally responsible for any injuries inflicted by the animal when running at large. Proof that the owner violated local leash laws will add strength to your claim, as well as evidence that the dog had a history of violent or aggressive behavior. Premises liability may be a factor, allowing you to bring an action against the owner of the property where the attack occurred, such as if there was no Beware of Dog sign posted.
