Our team of dog bite attorneys has more than 70 years of experience in fighting for injury victims. In addition, we employ a full-time nurse to assist with medical issues and questions. In appropriate cases, we hire qualified experts to help explain your injuries and their impact on your life. For instance, in dog bite cases, we may need to hire a plastic surgeon to explain the future surgeries that will be required to help minimize scaring and disfigurement. We may need to hire a psychologist to help explain the emotional injuries resulting from the attack. Or, we may need to hire an economist to outline the financial costs of your injuries in terms of lost wages, lost earning capacity, etc.

We have handled a significant number of dog bite cases, and we know the physical, emotional and financial burdens caused by dog bites and dog attacks. We will fight to make sure you get the compensatory damages and, if appropriate, punitive damages that you deserve. We have recovered more than $100 million dollars for our satisfied clients and we want to help you. Contact us online or call us today at 615-742-4880 or toll-free at 866-812-8787.
