Dog bites are serious injuries. Many small children are targeted by uncontrolled or vicious dogs, inflicting terrible bites to the face, hands, arms or legs. These bites can leave scars which will last the child's lifetime, unless the scarring is addressed with plastic surgery.

Bitten by a Bad Dog? Fight Back!

At the law office of Walton Telken, we provide accomplished personal injury counsel to people who have received dog bites. Many clients are surprised to learn that they do have the right to bring a suit, and may be entitled to money damages for their injuries, including scarring, disfigurement and psychological trauma.

If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, please contact us today for a free initial consultation.

Our goal is to recover maximum compensation for the wrong that has been done to you or your child.

Securing Compensation for Dog Bites

When you meet with an attorney at our firm during the initial free consultation, the lawyer will ask you about the incident, including who was involved, where it happened, and how you or your child is doing now. If we accept your case, we will investigate further, obtaining a copy of the police report, as well as the animal control report. Our Edwardsville personal injury lawyers look for patterns, including:

  • Does the animal have a prior history of biting?
  • Is the dog considered dangerous in the neighborhood?
  • Was the animal on a leash or in a fenced yard?
  • Was the yard gate closed?
  • Have the police been called to the dog owner’s home previously?

Many victims of dog bites incur heavy expenses due to the injury, including doctor and emergency room bills, as well as surgery, rehabilitation and therapy expenses. In extreme cases, there is even loss of life. We pursue compensation in those cases from the homeowner’s insurance of the dog’s owner.

This dog bite injury shouldn’t have happened, and you or your child will have to bear the impact of serious injury or disfigurement for the rest of your natural life. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we deal with insurance companies and their adjusters every day. We know how to press a claim and push for maximum compensation.
