Were You or Your Child Bit by a Dangerous Dog? Our Attorney Can Help
Many towns and cities have local ordinances governing the use of leashes and fencing — whether physical or invisible — to keep dogs contained. Some residential landlords also restrict what kind of dogs people may own, since some breeds such as pit bulls, Rottweilers or Doberman Pinschers tend to be aggressive, even if properly trained.
Dog bite injuries can range from a few puncture wounds to serious lacerations, which may result in permanent scarring or disfigurement. Additionally, those who suffer from dog bite attacks, especially young children, may suffer emotional trauma, which may require psychological counseling to overcome.
As your Des Moines dog bite attorney, Mr. Duffy will seek maximum compensation for all your injuries, both physical and emotional. He will investigate all the evidence in your claim, including incident reports, witness statements or any documentation of prior attacks by the dog to build a strong claim on your behalf.
