Dog (or any animal) Bite

Getting attacked by a dog can be a pretty scary situation. A dominant or scared dog can be vicious and can potentially create serious injury to somebody. It is ultimately an animal owner’s responsibility to keep his or her pet under control. Therefore, in a lot of cases, it is the pet’s owner’s fault if their pet attacks another human being. Statistics show that yearly, thousands of people are bitten by dogs in the United States, and one in six need medical care.  If you or a loved one have become the victim of a dog bite, you need to actively pursue your case. 


Get immediate medical care for your injuries. Furthermore, collect all necessary evidence regarding the attack, including animal control records, medical records, police discovery, and any other documents pertaining to the accident. Additionally, it will be wise to take photographs of the injuries in order to present them to the jury or show the defendants what they are up against.



Animal attacks can be one of the most frightening personal injuries that a victim can go through. Every year, thousands of individuals become victims of horrific attacks by ferocious dogs. Sadly, young children have been mauled by dogs leading to disturbing injuries.   Numerous fatalities are reported every year resulting from some of the most aggressive attacks.

If you have been attacked by a vicious animal, it is important that you seek immediate medical attention and call a lawyer to help you preserve all evidence.   The more evidence we preserve, the stronger our claim is. At the  Law Office of Ben Roberts, we realize that dog bites can be frightening matters and leave traumatic memories behind. Our Lawyers will work diligently to file your claim.  


At the Law Office of Ben Roberts, our attorneys do not believe that there are any excuses for an attack to occur by any breed of dog, let alone one with a dangerous reputation. Our lawyers will quickly pursue complete and reasonable compensation for our clients who have been the victims of this type of personal injury. We will hold the people who are responsible for the vicious attack of a dog accountable, including the dog owner, landowner, and whoever left the children exposed to the dogs. Often times, dog bite victims shy away from the thought of making a claim since they do not feel comfortable suing friends and family. However, homeowner’s insurance will usually cover the victims claim even if the dog is a normally tame animal.  


Statistics prove that numerous dog bite attacks are in reality preventable accidents and can be avoided through specialized training and awareness of the animal. The responsible person for assuring proper behavior of the animal is the owner. Specialized training will help teach a dog how to behave peacefully around people and young children, making the dog a harmless animal.

If a dog’s owner fails to provide their dog with appropriate training to assure the safety of others, he or she may be held responsible if the dog causes serious injury and/or death to others.
