Kansas City Attorney for Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites cause thousands of injuries yearly in America, with many of the individuals attacked being children. These dog bite injuries are often caused by the negligence of the dog's owner, who failed to properly secure or supervise their pet. Certain breeds of dogs are known for their aggression, such as Rottweiler's and pit bulls, and owners of these types of animals have a duty to ensure they are properly restrained.

When someone is bitten by a dog, the injuries can be severe, even catastrophic. Damage to muscles and nerves can occur, in addition to the damage to one's physical appearance. These types of injuries can take a long time to heal, especially if plastic surgery is required to repair damage caused by the injuries.

The costs for the medical treatment can be devastating to both you and your family. With the help of Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott, our attorneys can skillfully document and negotiate your claim for damages to the insurance company for the owner of the dog. Don't assume you can deal directly with them, as they don't have your best interests in mind and are looking to quickly and cost-effectively settle your claim.
