Dog Bite & Scarring

You’ve just been bitten by a dog or another domestic animal. After you’ve ensured your personal safety and physical well-being, it’s time to defend your full legal rights. We help get you the compensation, care and medical benefits you deserve after such an accident.

Animal Attacks and Scarring

Dog bites often leave the victim with severe emotional and physical injuries. Children especially may be traumatized after being attacked by an animal they thought was a friendly pet. At Raipher, P.C., we obtain full compensation for people who have suffered injuries from attacks by dogs and other animals.

Scarring after a dog bite or burn
The psychological damage caused by scarring from a dog bite or burn accident can be as serious as the initial injury. It is important that dog bite and fire victims obtain the resources they need for reconstructive surgery, psychological counseling and other expenses associated with scars from the fire or animal attack.

Taking the time to learn the details of the animal attack

When you come to the offices of Raipher, P.C., you will meet with a compassionate attorney who will listen carefully to the circumstances leading up to the attack, discuss your options, and explain how we can work to obtain results for you. We are strong advocates for victims of dog bites and other negligent acts that result in scarring and other personal injuries.

Building a persuasive case after a dog bite
Whether a dog was known to be vicious can be an important factor in building a strong case in some states. Our personal injury attorneys have a thorough understanding of liability laws regarding dog bites. We work to build a strong case by documenting the event, making a complete assessment of your financial loss and suffering, and applying the facts to the law, wherever you live.

Speak with a lawyer who understands

Many of our attorneys are dog owners and dog lovers. We understand the shock felt by the owner of a dog that has attacked someone. We understand that in many cases, the attack was not the owner’s fault. However, the victim deserves to receive full compensation. Our attorneys know that you may not wish to file a lawsuit against a neighbor or relative whose dog attacked you or your child. We know how to handle matters in a way that preserves your relationships and still gets the result you need and deserve.

Sensitive to your concerns
We know that consulting an attorney may be difficult. We try to make it easy by providing free initial consultations, evening and weekend appointments, and home or hospital visits.
