Dog Bite Injury Lawyer in St. Louis, MO

Dog bites and other animal attacks can have a lifelong impact on survivors and their loved ones. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries at the hands – or jaws – of someone’s dog, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney.

At The Hayden Law Firm St. Louis Accident & Injury Lawyers, we represent dog attack survivors in St. Louis and surrounding areas of Missouri and Illinois. We work to secure the financial compensation our clients deserve for their medical bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and other damages related to dog bites.

Missouri Has Strict Liability for Dog Bites

Pet owners have strict liability for the damages their pets inflict on others. For example, a dog’s owner is held liable for physical injuries, emotional and psychological damages unless their dog was provoked or the victim was trespassing on private property.

Common Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can inflict severe damage, especially when the victims are children. Examples of injuries include:

  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Facial injuries
  • Eye damage
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Nerve damage
  • Puncture wounds and tissue damage
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Our goal is to make sure our clients are properly compensated for what they have been through, what they are going through, and what they will continue to go through as a result of a dog owner’s negligence.
