Animal Bites

Animal Bites

While many of us enjoy having pets in our homes, there’s no doubt that untrained animals can be dangerous in the wrong circumstances. Every year, 1000s of Americans experience animal bites that cause injuries. If this animal is owned by an individual or organization, the victim may have a right to claim for damages.

Animal bites can be expensive to treat – and they may result in long-term pain and suffering. At Lerner, Moore, Silva, Cunningham & Rubel, we understand the importance of claiming for damages if you suffer an injury from an out-of-control animal.
