If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to a dog bite or another domestic animal attack, it’s important to protect yourself by obtaining representation from a lawyer experienced in premises liability law, particularly laws pertaining to dog bites and animal attacks.

Pet Owners Are Liable For The Actions Of Their Animals
At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we have witnessed the physical and psychological effects of serious dog bites. Not only can scarring and disfigurement affect a victim for the rest of his or her life, but a lasting fear of dogs and other animals may also result.
By working closely with you and your family, we will see that you receive necessary medical treatment, take steps to hold the negligent pet owner accountable, and explore options for securing just compensation to cover your expenses and pain and suffering.
We will thoroughly investigate the details of the incident. If the animal has attacked others in the past and the owner did little or nothing to address the issue, we may be able to highlight a history of violent behavior and further support your claim.
Although you may have moral issues with taking legal action to hold a violent or overly aggressive dog responsible, it’s important to remember that the owner of the animal failed both in his or her duty to protect you, as well as the animal. By taking action, you not only protect yourself, but can also help ensure others do not suffer the same fate.
After a dog attack, take immediate action by contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer. We will help you understand what to do:
- Seek medical attention.
- Take photos of your injuries.
- Take photos of the scene where the incident occurred.
- If others witnessed the attack, gather their information.
- Do not sign anything offered to you by the insurance company, the dog owner or the dog owner’s attorney.
- Reach out to our firm and learn how we can help.
