If you were viciously attacked, mauled or just bitten by a dog (regardless of size or imposed danger), you may be entitled to compensation for losses and damages related to your injuries. Dog owners, property owners, and landlords assume different types of liability in animal attack cases.
It is important to consult an experienced personal injury attorney to gain an understanding of your full legal options, which may include insurance compensation. The financial recovery that we pursue on behalf of dog bite injury victims is typically sought from insurance companies, not dog owners or property owners themselves. You don't have to be afraid of damaging a personal relationship.
I, attorney Alvin de Levie, can help you through the process in your best interests and address concerns you might have about friends or family members who own the dog that attacked you or a loved one.

Maximizing the Compensation You Deserve
The insurance company in your case will likely be difficult to deal with, but our firm will handle all communications and negotiations. It is critical that you speak with me before speaking with an insurance representative.
You can recover full compensation for all past, present and future damages if:
- Your injuries are severe.
- The dog has bitten someone before.
- The dog has previously exhibited dangerous behavior.
- The dog owner was negligent.
- The dog owner violated animal control law.
If the dog did not exhibit bad behavior or the owner did not act negligently, but the dog still injured you or a loved one, you can recover past, present and future medical bills and legal expenses.
In cases eligible for full compensation for all damages, those damages include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages/income
- Pain and suffering (emotional distress)
- Rehabilitation and vocational retraining
- Disability benefits
- Wrongful death benefits, if you lost a loved one
