Standing Up For Animal Attack Survivors Since 1993
Minnesota has made its dog bite law very clear. If a dog owner causes an injury, then the dog owner is responsible. Furthermore, an individual other than the owner who is in control of or responsible for the dog can be held liable if the dog attacks another person. If you were injured by a dog or another animal – even if the animal had never bitten a person before or was not known to be a threat – you have the right to seek monetary compensation.
Stephens Law P.A., aggressively pursues claims of personal injury against those in control of dangerous dogs and the pet owners when the dog has injured an innocent person. For over 25 years, founder Francis Stephens has represented the victims of animal attacks throughout Minnesota. You do not have to suffer through the trauma and aftermath of a dog bite all by yourself. He is here to give you the compassion and legal help that you need.
Helping With The Devastating Aftermath Of A Dog Bite
The aftermath of a dog bite can involve skin grafts, plastic surgery, many stitches and many reconstructive surgeries. Recovery is a long process and it is an expensive one, making paying for medical care almost impossible. The following are some of the most serious and common injuries associated with dog bites:
- Psychological damage such as post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD
- Nerve damage
As a skilled and aggressive injury lawyer, Mr. Stephens helps clients win the compensation that they deserve to pay for surgeries, medical bills, and counseling needed to deal with the emotional pain and trauma that accompanies such violent attacks.
Taking On Powerful Insurance Companies
There is no need for you to pay for injuries that were not your fault and experience the stress that the financial hardships bring about. There are many situations where the owner of a dog’s homeowner’s insurance will compensate a victim for their injuries. Mr. Stephens will handle the discussions with the insurance company, negotiating with them to help the client receive the most benefits possible. He will not hesitate to represent you in court if trial is necessary.
