Suffering any dog bite, or any animal attack, is always frightening. Whether the resulting physical injury is minor or severe, the emotional trauma is likely to be significant, especially for a child. The Indianapolis dog bite attorneys of Poynter & Bucheri understand how to handle these cases. We ensure that owners are held accountable and that you recover the compensation you rightfully deserve.
In 2006, more than 31,000 dog bite victims had to undergo costly reconstructive surgery. Yet, in most cases, the criminal penalties for having a vicious dog are relatively minor. At the least, Indiana Criminal Code defines unprovoked dog attacks as a Class C misdemeanor.
COMMON CAUSES OF DOG BITE INJURIES:
- The owner recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally fails to take reasonable steps to restrain the dog.
- The dog enters property other than the property of the dog’s owner.
- As the result of the owner’s failure to restrain the dog, the dog bites or attacks another person without provocation, resulting in bodily injury.
