Dog And Pet Attacks
Dog and pet owners are responsible for the actions of their animals and must pay close attention to prevent dangerous situations or harm to others. Victims of dog attacks (or other pets) have legal options for recovering compensation to pay for the medical bills or cosmetic surgery needed to treat the injury and recovery.
Providing Legal Options For Recovering Maximum Damages Following A Dog Bite Or Attack
At Sullivan & Sullivan, we advocate on behalf of those who have been injured due to the negligence of dog owners. Our attorneys are experienced in advocating for the compensation that victims need to cover medical bills, rehabilitation and surgical options to recover from the attack.

Far too often, the victims are children, and the attack can result in injuries or disfigurement that could affect the child for the rest of his or her life. Given the size difference between children and large dogs, these injuries can be severe to life-threatening.
Other serious dog and pet incidents that we commonly see include:
- Dogs biting or attacking a postal worker or delivery person
- Dogs biting or attacking elderly individuals
- Minor bites that result in infection and sickness
- Attacks that cause knee injuries
Infection is also a concern following a dog bite. Dogs carry bacteria in their saliva that can be dangerous if it is left to fester on an open wound, or if it is stitched up into the wound.
