Dog Bites

Injury resulting from canine attacks has reached epidemic proportions.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, it is estimated that 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs annually, accruing medical costs surmounting $100 million. While insurance companies contribute to pay a portion of these costs, victims and their families are often left to heal while bearing the bulk of the financial responsibility. Furthermore, many communities forgo the institution of dog attack prevention programs, preferring to devote funding to more tangible efforts.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, however, you have rights and options. Allen Schulman & Associates understands the burden victims and their families experience; beyond medical expenses, reduced neighborhood relationships, increased emotional distress, and potential long-term disabilities may result following an attack. We are devoted to reducing the negative residual effects of attacks and to the pursuit of restoring a victim’s well-being.
