Compassionate Representation For Dog Bite Injuries

Many homeowners have one or more dogs living in the household. Whether a dog is intended to be a family pet or a guard dog, the owner has a responsibility to maintain control over the pet. Unfortunately, dogs frequently attack. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that dogs attack more than 4.5 million people each year.

In Connecticut, dog owners can be held responsible for injuries their dogs cause — even if the animal never showed signs of aggressive behavior in the past. Most dog bite victims know the pet and its owner. Some are hesitant to seek compensation for their injuries. The truth of the matter is that a dog attack claim is typically covered by homeowners insurance.

Get the Full Compensation You Deserve

At C & C in Norwich, we have substantial experience helping dog bite victims recover the full compensation they need to cover medical expenses, therapy and other damages that result from a dog attack. Victims should not have to bear the cost of what they have lost due to a dog bite injury.

Children are especially vulnerable in a dog attack, due to their height and size. A child's head and face are easily accessible for a dog. However, people of all ages can suffer serious injuries, including disfigurement, severe scarring, infection, broken bones and even death. Moreover, the emotional trauma of the attack can weigh heavily on victims for years to come.

Pit bulls have received a great deal of attention in recent years — some people refer to pit bulls as a weapon on the end of a leash. However, any dog can suddenly attack.

If you or a loved one has been injured, we will fully investigate the event, look for potential witnesses and leave no stone unturned to build a compelling claim, aimed at results.
