Dog Bites / Animal Attacks

Raleigh Dog Bite Attorney • Durham Animal bite Lawyer

North Carolina law is very clear about pet owners' responsibility to keep pets and animals under control at all times. Insurance Companies estimate that animal attacks cause millions of dollars in medicals costs, lost wages, and permanent and painful scarring each year. If a dog bites or attacks, serious criminal and civil penalties may result. At the personal injury law office of Nichols Law Firm, I believe that everyone should have the right to own pets, but with ownership comes responsibility and liability.

I am attorney Christopher R. Nichols. I have handled many animal attack cases, including vicious dogs, police dog bites, animals in roads causing accidents, and animals attacking children. I have also represented pet owners for claims against animal clinics for harm caused to well loved pets. I have over 20 years of extensive personal injury trial lawyer experience helping people recover damages for the pain and injury suffered from dog bites and animal attacks. As a dog owner, I know that animals are a joy, but also a responsibility. If an owner does not keep them under proper control, they can also become dangerous animals.

If you have been injured when bitten by a dog or other pet animal, contact the Raleigh dog bite attorney's office of Nichols Law Firm to schedule a no-cost consultation to discuss your claim. I'll help you decide whether the law will entitle you to compensation.
