Animal and Dog Bites

Helping the Injured and Their Families Since 1972

Have you been bitten by another person’s dog, other domesticated animal or pet? Animal owners who fail to prevent their pets from injuring others are highly vulnerable to litigation – rightly so.

Mobile and many other communities in Alabama and throughout Baldwin County have leash laws that, when followed, prevent attacks by dogs. In fact, if dog owners fail to leash a dog that attacks, they could be held liable for damages. Owners of pets that have already exhibited a “viscous propensity” are also frequently found liable for attacks and injuries.

At the personal injury law firm of Clay, Massey & Associates, P.C., we have handled numerous animal and dog attack cases, including cases involving uncontrolled animals, leash issues and dangerous breeds like Pit Bulls and Rottweilers. Since 1972, we have built a strong reputation and track record for providing results in animal attack cases.

Recent Cases Illustrate Our Ability to Deliver Results in Animal and Dog Bite Cases

A recent case demonstrates our skill at obtaining needed and deserved compensation for clients following attacks by pets owned by negligent owners.

Our client was working as a phone service technician when he was invited into a client’s yard to provide phone repair services. The homeowner’s German shepherd was loose in the fenced yard and immediately attacked our client, almost removing his ear through repeated bites and attacks.

Our client required significant medical treatment including reconstructive surgery. Our aggressive and experienced representation resulted in a recovery of the full policy limits of the applicable homeowner’s insurance policy.
