Dog Bites & Vicious Animal Attacks

Pets and other kept animals are common throughout the North Country. Generally speaking, pet owners believe their animals are peaceful and well-behaved.

In the presence of other dogs or strangers, however, even the most benign dog or pet can become aggressive and hostile. Some people even purchase breeds known to be violent or intentionally steer an animal's demeanor toward violence and aggression.

Whether child or adult, victims with serious injuries from dog attacks should consider seeking compensation.

Contact the lawyers at Fischer, Bessette, Muldowney & McArdle, LLP, to learn about potential legal avenues to pursue financial compensation.

Negligent Pet Owners

Injuries inflicted by dogs or other animals have the potential to cause very serious injury. For instance, dogs have been known to bite and maul their victims. If an animal has an infection or disease, even a small bite could lead to hospitalization.

Those bitten and injured could be entitled to recover money to pay for their medical costs and other expenses resulting from the bite. If a loved one was killed by an animal attack, you may wish to consider exploring a wrongful death lawsuit in regard to the death.
