Dogs have long been considered “man’s best friend.” We trust them and we train them. But walking a dog without a leash or letting it run free doesn’t demonstrate discipline, it reveals irresponsibility. Even the best-behaved dogs can be lost to their animal instincts—many times without provocation. We’ve often seen cases where a dog’s aggression is the result of poor treatment from its owner.

As reported by, a public education website, 1,000 people a day require emergency care treatment as the result of a dog bite injury—some fatal. But, in many cases, these dog bite injuries could have been prevented.

If you’ve suffered an unprovoked dog bite injury as the result of a dog owner’s negligence, that dog’s owner is liable for your injuries. Geoffrey Fieger and his team have represented and won for many dog bite injury victims. We’re not afraid to fight and get you winning results.

The most common breeds that can cause a dog bite injury include:

  • Pit Bull
  • Rottweiler
  • Husky
  • Wolf Hybrid
  • Bullmastiff
  • German Shepherd
  • Akita
  • Chow
  • Doberman
  • Boxer

With the right training and love, these animals make gentle companions. It’s when human owners mistreat them or do not take responsibility for them that people get hurt. Fieger Law believes dog owners should pay the price for their carelessness, not you.

Dog bite injuries include both physical and mental harm:

  • Puncture wounds and lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Infections
  • Deep tissue and nerve damage
  • Permanent or long-lasting scars
  • Emotional distress
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Wrongful death

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. The attorneys at Fieger Law are here to help you get maximum compensation for your dog bite injury. We’ve helped many dog bite injury victims and we can help you.
