Dog Bites Are A Serious Matter
If you are a parent, child, delivery person or postal carrier who has been attacked by an unleashed animal, you know how painful and traumatic this experience can be. A serious dog bite can cause excruciating pain, exposure to rabies, facial disfigurement and emotional trauma that can last a lifetime.
Michael J. Schneider, dog bite attorney with more than 45 years of experience, represents clients in Anchorage and throughout Alaska who have been injured by dog bites and other animal attacks. In that time, we have established a firm track record of successful trips and falls and other premises liability claims. We are fully committed to fairness and justice for you, and all injured persons in our state.
We Handle All Types Of Injury Claims
If you or a loved one was viciously attacked and bitten by a dog because of the negligence of its owner, you may be able to recover financial compensation for:
- Nerve damage
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Emotional trauma
- Rabies vaccinations
- Reconstructive surgery
- Treatment of defensive wounds
Was the dog that bit you or your child running free at the time of the attack? Anchorage’s leash law imposes penalties for dog owners who violate it. If an unharnessed dog attacks, the owner could be liable for a victim’s injuries, even if the animal never bit anyone before.
Holding Dog Owners Accountable
The dog’s owner and his or her insurer should be held accountable for what happened to you. The least you should expect is financial compensation that covers losses such as missing wages from time off the job, medical bills, and the pain and suffering that has made your life miserable.
Have you undergone surgery, cosmetic surgery or emotional therapy for the dog bite or animal attack that injured you or caused the wrongful death of a loved one? We can help.
