Has A Dog Attacked You or a Loved One?

Our attorneys can help you demand justice

Dog bites might not seem serious - until a dog bites you or your child. The fact is dog attacks can be extremely vicious and often result in victims being hospitalized. In many instances, a dog will attack a person's face, resulting in reconstructive surgery. And if these animal bites are not treated in a timely manner, the wound can become infected, causing even more pain and suffering.

To make matters worse, many victims of dog attacks know the owner of the dog. That's why some people are reluctant to take legal action in these personal injury cases. They fear they could harm their relationship with a friend, neighbor or relative.

When you hire Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP to represent you, we can deal directly with the dog owner's insurance company after your attack, in most cases. Most dog attacks are treated as premises liability cases, and attacks are usually covered through the homeowner's insurance policy. That means we won't have to deal with your friend or neighbor who owns the dog.

There are also other legal options available depending on the circumstances of your attack. If the dog has a history of attacking other people and the dog owner did not take any precautions to protect the public from an attack, you may be able to seek additional financial compensation. Many legal options exist - and we can explain all of them to you.

South Dakota has unique laws regarding "vicious dogs." The state statute involves whether the dog was provoked by the injury victim. Courts also take into account whether the victim was trespassing at the time of the attack. That's why you need us handling your case. We know the law and will vigorously defend your rights. Put your trust in us. Contact our law firm right now.
