Dog/Animal Bites


Dog and other animal bites are much more common than people tend to believe, with millions occurring each year. Dog bites can lead to serious physical injury, risk of infection, scarring, and they often cause emotional trauma as well. These results can be even more significant when they happen to a young child.

Missouri and Illinois each have laws which hold the owner of a dog responsible for damages caused by their pet. Additionally, many municipalities, especially in the St. Louis area, have local ordinances or regulations regarding animals who bite.

Dog bite cases tend to be difficult in that emotions normally run high. No one likes to believe their beloved pet would hurt someone. But we understand that pets have instincts and sometimes react in unpredictable ways.

Our attorneys have years of experience in handling dog and animal bite claims throughout Missouri and Illinois, and we have secured millions of dollars of compensation for our injured clients. We understand the intricacies of these cases and, if you have been bitten, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional damages.
