Dog Bites

Dog Bites Attorney in Kansas City

Despite the classic image of the lovably loyal dog, sadly there are some dogs that have either been trained to be violent, or are simply aggressive and dangerous by nature. These dogs can attack without warning and cause a variety of injuries; anything from a fierce bite to serious wound. In worst case scenarios, they can even cause death. Owners are required to keep their dogs under control and prevent them from harming others.

But when they fail in their duty, dog attacks occur. If you or someone you know has been harmed in a dog attack, contact a Kansas City personal injury lawyer at Martin & Wallentine to find out how to pursue legal action against the dog owners that allowed the dog to attack you or your loved one.

One of our seasoned attorneys will meet with you and learn everything about the incident, then advise you on how to best proceed with bringing charges against them. Our lawyers are passionate about obtaining justice for people who have been injured in a dog attack. We will lay out all the legal avenues available to you and assist you in pursuing charges. Working tirelessly on your behalf, we will fight for your rights, demand fair compensation for the vicious animal attack, and work to see justice served.

Kansas City Dog Bites Lawyer

Under Missouri law, the owner of a dog that bites someone without provocation and causes serious injury can be charged with a misdemeanor. If the dog has previously engaged in an unprovoked attack, the charge can be increased to a felony.

A dog attack can leave you wounded and facing thousands of dollars in medical fees and medication in order to heal. Depending on the nature of the attack, you might also face ongoing medical issues that require you to pay even more money. Don't let a dog attack go unpunished. The dog's owner may have shown criminal negligence and can be held accountable, both legally and financially.

Contact a Kansas City personal injury lawyer to discuss the circumstances around the dog assault and learn about the legal avenues available to you.

We practice extensively and have represented hundreds of clients throughout Jackson County and cities including Olathe, Gardner, Lenexa, Overland Park, Shawnee, Leawood, and Kansas City.
