Animal & Dog Bite Lawyers in Kansas City
When Dog Owners Fail to Restrain a Dangerous Pets
When a dog runs free (either from escaping from restraints of being unsupervised), everyone in the immediate area is possibly at risk. Unfortunately, dogs, especially notoriously dangerous breeds, do not discriminate and may attack anyone regardless of age or physical condition.
Not only could you suffer injuries from the biting itself, you could also slip and fall due to the dog scaring you and forcing you to try and run away. In the end, however, the owner is responsible if their out-of-control animal causes serious injury. The Kansas City premises liability attorneys of Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. work hard to prove the negligence of a dog owner and secure compensation for the damages you have suffered from a dog bite by filing a personal injury or premises liability suit.
Even the most ardent dog lover can become phobic after an attack. Emotional and physical scars are common, and the dog's owner should be held responsible. Contact an attorney at our Kansas City office by calling us at 816-307-0056 or contact us online.
