Seattle Dog Bite Injury Attorney

Dog Attack

Attacked by Someone Else’s Dangerous Pet?

Having a dog or other large pet has become more and more popular. A pet owner is responsible for the actions of their pet, including if it should attack and harm another individual.

It is unfortunately true that many pet owners do not take the time to properly train their pet, or they may consider they need an “attack dog” to protect their homes. This irresponsible pet training can lead to disfiguring dog bites to other individuals in the neighborhood.

This is particularly horrible when a child is involved. Some dog bites, for example, can cause disfigurement and permanent scarring. Certainly, the effects on the person can last a lifetime. If you or your child was attacked by a dog, you have rights.

Law Office of J.D. Smith, PLLC has recovered millions in damages on behalf of our clients, and we are prepared to do the same for you. Click here to view some of our firm's most notable case results.

What Should I Do After Being Bitten by a Dog?

If you or a family member has been the victim of an attack by a vicious animal, it serves your best interests to contact a practiced premises liability attorney in Seattle without delay. After the attack, the first step is to get medical help.
