Many dog bites could be prevented if owners obeyed leash laws and took extra precaution with aggressive breeds. Unfortunately, dog bites continue to be some of the most common injuries in the emergency room.
If you or a loved one has been injured, it is critical to identify the dog and the owner as soon as possible. You should seek medical attention immediately, including rabies shots if necessary. It is also critical to take pictures and contact witnesses to preserve evidence for later use. Our attorneys will take all necessary steps to preserve evidence and aggressively pursue your case.
We are experienced in all of the following:
- Dog bites
- Animal attacks

Children are commonly the victims of dog bites because they are curious or do not always know how to behave with strange dogs. If your child has suffered a dog bite, they may have scarring and need reconstructive surgery or need counseling if they suffered a severe attack. At Herrling Clark Law Firm, Ltd., our attorneys are sensitive to the number of issues that accompany a dog bite. We can assist you in recovering compensation for pain and suffering, monetary damages, medical costs, reconstructive surgical costs, or psychological treatment.
