We Handle All Types Of Injury Cases
Our Fayetteville pet owner negligence lawyers have extensive experience handling animal attack cases. We understand that a dog attack can result in catastrophic injuries, including:
- Nerve damage
- Tissue damage
In addition to physical harm that requires medical treatment and ongoing care, a person who is attacked by a dog will often suffer emotional harm as well. We will make sure to include all relevant damages in our quest to get you full and fair compensation for all of your injuries.
Recovery Through Homeowners Insurance
Many people are reluctant to pursue compensation in these types of cases because they feel that there is no chance of recovery, or because the dog’s owner is a neighbor, friend or relative. The fact is, many homeowners’ insurance policies will cover injuries that arise from a dog attack.
Nonetheless, North Carolina’s dog bite laws are complex, which is one reason you need an attorney. If the dog has never bitten or chased a person before, it may be necessary to bring a premises liability action or other negligence claim to establish that the pet owner was at fault. We will explore every avenue to help you get the compensation you need in order to move forward with your life.
