Burger Law is a personal injury law firm that specializes in k-9 attacks. It is the responsibility of dog owners to control their animals and prevent attacks. Dogs can severely injure and permanently scar adults and children – often leaving marks in visible areas. Missouri has strict liability statutes for dangerous animals that attack and injure, and many municipalities have local laws that protect its citizens from unsafe dogs. In most jurisdictions, there are leash laws and sometimes special law ordinances for specific dog breeds including Pit Bulls, Akitas, Doberman Pinschers, and more. Some dog bite cases suggest a prior vicious propensity is required to establish legal liability, but the St Louis dog bite lawyers of Burger Law have been successful in pursuing premises liability claims where a prior bite is not necessary.
When Dog Bites May Occur
Dog attacks are especially tragic when children become injured as a result of negligent dog owners. Vicious dog attacks can leave physical and mental scarring that victims may never be able to overcome. Gary Burger and his associates have had years of experience as dog bite attorneys in St Louis, and we can assist you in getting full compensation for your injuries. If you or a loved one have been involved in a K-9 attack, it’s important to immediately identify the attacking dog, mandate rabies testing and work with a state or county health official to ensure the dog is quarantined. In most K-9 attack cases, a dog bite lawsuit is required. When you allow the St Louis dog bite lawyers of Burger Law to assist you in your dog bite case, we will quickly investigate to determine whether or not the dog has a history of biting, make claims, file lawsuits, and try cases against the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance and/or other insurance.
