In such cases, the compensation can cover past and future medical bills, past and future loss of income and general damage, pain and suffering. We have proficiency in handling and litigating these types of dog bite claims.

When you come to us for consultation, we will get all the necessary information on your case and conduct an investigation to confirm that there are legal grounds to base the claim on.

Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Attorneys - We will help you get compensated

Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Attorneys have helped thousands of clients who have endured injuries due to dog bites and dog attacks.

With our many years in the legal industry, we have been involved in many of these cases, and understand all the investigations needed and involved in this kind of case. Dog bites and attacks fall well within personal injury claims.

The determination of these cases will be evaluated through an initial consultation, where we will investigate the entire incident and determine whether or not you may be able to legally get compensation for your injury.

We would encourage our clients to contact us as soon as they possibly can, after the incident of a dog bite or attack has happened. This will enable us to get on the case quickly, and avoid any delays thereafter.

We will investigate your case

Dog bites can cause horrific outcomes for a person and small children alike. More times than ever, we see the scarring of not only hospital and surgery, but emotional damages, especially in children.

This is all part of what you can be liable to claim for this kind of legal suit. Dog attacks and bites can happen anywhere. At a friend’s home, walking along the beach, or even in a public park. If the owner of the dog has not taken precautionary measures to ensure their dog cannot hurt anyone, they will be liable for compensation to the injured party.

If the dog attacks a person on private property, there are a few obstacles that may need to be investigated, before a dog bite claim can be made.

This kind of case can allow you to claim for a number of areas, including your pain and suffering after the incident, which included the emotional trauma.

You can also claim for the medical expenses paid for any doctor or hospital visits, surgery and follow up medical treatments.

Contact our legal team today and let us help you put your case into action, and get you the compensation you deserve after enduring this traumatic incident.
