If you're one of the 4.7 million Americans who've been bit by a dog this year, you already know it's no joke. Not only are dog bites painful and frightening but they can also be life threatening. Anyone bit by a dog should always have, at minimum, a blood test to insure that no contagious disease has been contracted.
Medical treatment is an expense you should not have to incur in addition to the ordeal of a dog bite. Most states hold dog owners accountable if their pet attacks. This means that you are entitled to compensation for medical costs as well as any trauma experienced as a result of the attack.
At Goldstein & McGowan, LLP, we specialize in dog bite cases specifically and are experts at getting our clients the justice and compensation they deserve.
Most states have a statute of limitations on dog bite cases. In other words; there are time limits in which you can file a personal injury claim against the owner of the offending animal. If you or someone close to you has been bit, don't wait, call 212-679-1330 now.
