Dog Bite & Animal Attack Attorneys in Rockingham

Injured by a Negligent Owner’s Pet? We Can Represent Your Case!

While domesticated animals often serve as beloved companions and family members, they are also responsible for nearly 5 million injuries each year. While a person’s first instinct may be to pet an animal, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the animal is just as enthusiastic about the idea. When a pet feels threatened or anxious, they may lash out in self-defense. Alternatively, tragic incidents often occur when a dangerous animal is kept and mishandled by a careless owner.

If you’ve been bitten by a dog or a different domesticated animal in North Carolina, it’s imperative that you retain the services of a law firm that has a comprehensive understanding of applicable state laws. At Price, Petho & Anderson, our Rockingham dog bite and animal attack attorneys can help you seek justice and secure compensation that facilitates your recovery.

Discuss your injuries with an experienced legal representative. Contact our Rockingham dog bite and animal attack lawyers at (704) 350-2630.

Understanding Dog Bite Laws in North Carolina

Without legal representation, it can be difficult to collect damages for a dog bite injury in North Carolina. This is because state law follows the “one bite rule.” According to the law, your attorney needs to prove that the dog owner’s negligence is responsible for your injury. Also, the court needs to agree that the owner was aware of their pet’s propensity for violence and failed to use reasonable care.

Pursuing Damages

If you’re injured by a domestic animal, the first thing you need to do is seek immediate medical attention. When you’re at the hospital, make sure that you request a copy of your medical record. This record, along with pictures of your injury, can serve as essential evidence in your case.

By pursuing a lawsuit, you may be able to recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
