Attacked by a Dog?
West Virginia Personal Injury Lawyer
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.
