Dog Bite Lawyer
Contact FINK LAW FIRM KC for aggressive legal representation when you or a loved one has been attacked by a vicious dog. Many municipalities have ordinances that either restrict or prohibit certain breeds, or mixed breeds, in their communities. Violation of this ordinance can mean strict liability towards the owner or possessor of the prohibited dog.
U.S. Dog Bite Statistics
According to DogsBite.org, "In the 10-year period from 2005 to 2014, pit bulls killed 203 Americans and accounted for 62% of the total recorded deaths (326). Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 74% of these deaths."
Dog Bite Injuries
Dog and animal bite wounds can vary from scratches, bites, open wounds, torn eye sockets and other injuries that require stitches, vaccinations, or reconstructive surgery. Incurring outrageous medical bills is sometimes the least of the pain incurred with animal bites. Damaging scars that last a lifetime, painful vaccinations, exposure to infection, and potential exposure to rabies are just a few of the damages incurred by dog bites.
