Richmond Dog Bite Injury Lawyers
A vicious dog is an unpredictable, potentially lethal animal that must be contained at all times. The serious injuries and emotional trauma inflicted on dog bite victims are difficult to overstate. If you or your child has fallen prey to a dog with a known propensity to bite — or if a dog owner’s negligence caused the attack — you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.
Virginia laws covering dog bites are specific and complex. Unlike other states that impose “strict liability” on dog owners, in Virginia it is typically necessary to establish that an offending dog has bitten before. But there are exceptions. After a dog attack, it is essential to act quickly and get legal counsel from an attorney with strong experience handling such cases.
