Assisting Animal Bite Victims

Pets are a household staple for more and more families these days. Dogs can be great companions and loving creatures. However, dogs require training and safety precautions. Sometimes dogs can attack and bite. The Law Office of Anthony Gurvis has ample experience working with individuals who have been bitten by animals. Attorney Gurvis understands that these cases can often be difficult if the victim knows the animal owner, and he works compassionately and thoroughly to help victims seek justice and compensation for dog bite injuries.

Advocating For Your Rights

Animal bites occur more and more frequently and can happen around even the tamest and best trained animals. If you have been bitten by an animal, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.

If you have suffered an animal bite, you should take the following steps:

  • If the animal is a pet, obtain the name of the owner and animal.
  • Collect names and contact information of any witnesses.
  • Record the incident location and take pictures.
  • Seek medical attention and keep all documentation.

If the animal is owned by someone you know such as a friend or family member, you can ask if he or she has homeowners insurance. It is possible that a settlement can be reached through the insurance company if the owner has homeowners coverage. If not, do not try to settle the dispute on your own. We have the experience and knowledge to handle sensitive negotiations with your acquaintances.
