Dog Bite Attorneys for Victims of Dog Attacks

According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 4.7 million dog-bite incidents occur in the United States every year. Of those 4.7 million attacks, 800,000 will require medical attention — half of these are children — and 386,000 will need emergency medical treatment. Most victims of dog bites are children.

When your child has been attacked by a dog or you have been the victim of a dog attack, it is natural to be afraid that you will face long term physical and mental consequences. It is important in these situations to hold the dog owner accountable for their animal’s actions. The first step in pursuing your claim must be to identify the dog owner(s), this may require some investigation.

The good news is that Minnesota has a strict liability statute that holds the owner and/or harborer of the dog liable for the dog’s actions without proving negligence. Unlike some other states, Minnesota does not give dogs a free “first bite.” Minnesota law also allows negligence claims to be made for dog attacks.

The experienced attorneys at Maschka, Riedy and Ries have tried dog bite cases and successfully negotiated settlements with insurance companies and will do the same for you or your loved one. We will help you obtain all of the compensation the law allows in your situation. Dog attack victims may be entitled to recover their past and future medical expenses, wage loss, emotional distress and pain and suffering.
