New Orleans Dog Bite Attorney

Being bitten by a dog can be one of the most devastating events in a person's life. Women and children are often the most affected by these tragic accidents — left with scars and disfigurement on their legs and faces. There are also many misconceptions surrounding the liability of the owner of a dog who bites someone.

In the past, dogs and their owners were given a free pass on the first sign of aggression. It used to be that the victim had to prove that the dog had bitten another person before he or she could sue for damages. This "first bite free" rule is no longer the law. A dog owner is strictly liable as long as the victim did not provoke the dog and the owner did nothing to prevent the dog from getting free of the owner's control. Poor fencing, no leashes and other facts are investigated to prove a dog bite case.

These events are very scary. If a child is involved, this can traumatically affect this child's view of dogs for the rest of his or her life. For victims of any age, the scarring damage can permanently damage their faces, hands, legs and bodies, forever changing the way they are seen by others and the way they see themselves.
