A dog attack can happen in an instant, and it can be a terrifying experience. People who have been the victim of a dog bite attack may suffer severe injuries, including deep lacerations, nerve damage, scars and disfigurement. In the most severe cases, dog bite attacks may cause fatal injuries.

Our attorneys offer experienced and dedicated representation on behalf of people who have been injured as a result of a dog bite attack.
Dog Bite Attacks Are a Significant Problem
According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4.5 million Americans are the victims of dog bite attacks each year. All too often, dog owners fail to take adequate precautions to prevent dog bite attacks. The result can be catastrophic — many dog bite victims are young children.
The full impact of a dog bite attack is difficult to measure. In addition to physical injuries and scarring, dog attack victims may also suffer psychological harm, including anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder in some cases. For victims who have suffered severe disfigurement, the cost of reconstructive surgery can be significant, and the sense of shame or social anxiety resulting from such injuries can have a lasting impact.
At the Law Office of Curtis Floyd, we vigorously pursue full compensation on behalf of dog bite accident victims. We take time to identify and gather evidence critical to demonstrating liability, and we work with doctors and other experts when necessary to understand the severity of our clients' injuries.
