A dog bite can be a frightening and dangerous experience, especially for a child. Unfortunately, children are often the victims of dog bites because they tend to be more curious about dogs and willing to walk up to a dangerous dog. For many untrained and dangerous dogs, a small child actually looks like a play thing.
If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, get medical attention immediately. Once you've received basic medical care, the next call you need to make is to
the Oregon dog bite lawyers at Peterson Law Offices. For many years,
Todd Peterson, lead attorney, has handled accident and injury cases, including many, many dog bites, all over Oregon and southern Washington.
We can often come to you, or even work with you through the mail. At Peterson Law Offices,
our Oregon dog bite lawyers don't get paid unless you get a settlement,
and, in our opinion, you will do less work and get more money for
your Oregon dog bite injury claim. For any dog bite that has broken the skin, get help, gather information, document the wound, and then call us. The dog owner's insurance company may very well try to speak with you early on. Don't do it. Our lawyers can do the talking for you, with much better results,
in our opinion.
