Dog Bites Are A Serious Matter
North Carolina law is 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 medical 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, we believe that everyone should have the right to own pets, but with ownership comes responsibility and liability.
Attorney Christopher R. Nichols has handled numerous animal attack cases, including vicious dogs, police dog bites, animals in roads causing accidents, and animals attacking children. We have also represented pet owners for claims against animal clinics for harm caused to well -loved pets. We 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, we 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 animals, contact our office to schedule a no-cost consultation to discuss your claim. We will help you decide whether the law will entitle you to compensation.
