When you are walking through a park or public property or are visiting a residential home, you expect that any dog owner will take responsibility for their pets. If you have been attacked by a dog or other type of animal as a result of irresponsible or negligent behavior, you may be entitled to compensation.
Animal bites or dog bites can be extremely traumatizing and physically painful, even leading to permanent scarring. At Shillen & Mackall, our Vermont personal injury attorneys are here to help you file a injury claim against the animal's negligent owner.
Dog bites can be extremely painful, especially for young children. They often require surgery or stitches, and depending on how deep the wounds are, you could experience emotional distress as a result of permanent scarring. Animal bites are also more susceptible to become infected, as they can be difficult to clean thoroughly. Our personal injury attorneys in Vermont are committed to providing you with dedicated representation and proving that the dog or animal owner was at fault.
