Bit By A Dog?

While a dog can be a man’s best friend, it can also be his worst nightmare. Our Bridgeport dog bite injuries attorneys at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke realize how emotionally traumatizing and physically scarring dog attacks can be for our clients. Our Connecticut law firm is ready to help you seek fair compensation for your damages.

Animal Attacks Are Damaging — We Can Help You If You Have Been Bit

Having spent nearly 50 years advocating the rights of personal injury victims, our lawyers, James L. O'Rourke and Margaret C. DiCicco, have come to understand the distinct legal issues surrounding dog bite cases.

Many of our child and adult clients have been bitten or attacked by their neighbors’ or relatives’ pets. A victim’s relationship with the pet owner can make the situation awkward, especially when it comes to suing the owner for damages. We will help you understand your legal rights, as well as neutralize the situation so that you may seek to collect financial compensation that can help you or your loved one recover from and cope with:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Skin lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Nerve damage
  • Rabies or other possible diseases
  • Infection
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Other psychological trauma
  • Fatal dog attack

Our lawyers will evaluate your case and help you understand how Connecticut laws apply to your situation. If you decide to pursue your dog bite claim, we will work directly with the pet owner’s insurance company to discuss damages and a possible fair settlement.

Our goal is to make sure you are receiving the medical attention you need to make an effective recovery. We will work with your doctor to learn about the full extent of your injuries and make sure they are taken into consideration. It is not uncommon for dog attack victims to need rehabilitation or reconstructive surgery. If a settlement is not in your best interest, our attorneys will vigorously defend your case in court.
