An Experienced Dog Bite Lawyer to Represent You in Houston, Galveston, Baytown and Throughout Texas
Dog bites should not be taken lightly. An attack by a dog can result in physical and emotional scarring, trauma and disfigurement, injuries that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Each year, dogs bite about 4.5 million people, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). About 885,000 people, or almost one if five of those who are bitten, require medical treatment, statistics show. Tens of thousands of people undergo reconstruction surgery as a result of their injuries.
Children are at risk, especially youngsters between 5 and 9 years old. The CDC reports that children are more likely to receive medical attention for dogbite injuries than adults.
If a dog bit you or a friend or family member, you should not have to be responsible for the unanticipated medical costs.
Be aware that a dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy will cover most claims related to a dogbite injury.
We at Smith & Hassle will advocate for the victims of dog bites. We remain dedicated to returning the maximum compensation for your injury and suffering.
