Dog Bite

Dog bites can leave long-lasting wounds that are both physical and mental. The trauma, medical costs, recovery and life after dog bite injuries impact families, not only the victim. In rare cases, dog bite injuries lead to death, and our law firm is fully capable of handling such devastating cases as well.

At Carluzzo Rochkind & Smith, P.C., we handle all of the legal aspects so that our clients in Manassas, Prince William, Manassas Park, Gainesville, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Dumfries, Bristow, Warrenton, Centreville, Fairfax, Stafford, Chantilly, Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, and throughout Northern Virginia can focus on recovery. We manage communications with opposing parties regarding the legal action that we take on your behalf, and we keep you informed of strategy and progress throughout the legal process.

Your attorney is responsive to your legal needs 24/7.   No matter how big or small, vicious or well-behaved the dog is, you deserve compensation for serious injuries.

Should You File A Lawsuit For A Dog Bite Injury?

Many victims are hesitant to sue dog owners for injuries, no matter how serious they might be, especially if the dog owner is a friend or relative. The best thing that you can do for the victim and your family is to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

We’ll help you understand homeowners insurance and general liability insurance and how each protects the personal and business assets of dog owners. If we successfully recover the compensation that you deserve in your case, the settlement payment will actually be paid by the insurance company, not the dog owner.

Contact our firm even if the dog owner says that he or she doesn’t have insurance since your own homeowners insurance may provide coverage.

What Type Of Compensation Can You Recover From A Dog Bite Case?

If your case goes to trial, the court will want the victim to be provided with the monetary compensation that covers past, present and future medical costs; pain and suffering; mental anguish from disfigurement; rehabilitation costs; and any necessary punitive damages against the dog owner.

Our experienced trial lawyers will do what’s best for your case and your best interests. We deal with the insurance company and adverse parties, so you don’t have to.
