Animal Bites

A dog attack may leave more than physical scarring. It can create a deep psychological fear of dogs and other animals. Depending on the severity of the damage, a victim may need extensive surgeries and psychiatric counseling to recover.

If you are a victim of a dog attack, the personal injury attorneys at Barrett & Pavluk, LLC can help you recover compensation for your suffering, medical and therapy expenses, and other costs associated with the attack. We will fight to make certain you receive all the monetary damages you deserve, whether through negotiations or at trial.

Suing the Homeowners’ Insurance

Did you know the owners of the dog that attacked or bit you? Perhaps they were friends or even family members. You may not want to pursue a dog attack claim, because you feel you are harming someone you know and love.

It is important to remember, however, that you are not filing a claim against the dog owner, but their insurance company. Do not let guilt prevent you from pursuing the compensation you need.
