St. Cloud Lawyer Helping Dog Attack Victims
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, even if the dog had never bitten a person before or was not known to be a threat, you have the right to seek monetary compensation from the person in control of the dog or the owner if the dog attacked you and caused some kind of injury.
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 caused an innocent person to be injured. For nearly 20 years, we have represented the victims of animal attacks in St. Cloud, Duluth, and throughout northern and central Minnesota. You do not have to suffer through the trauma and aftermath of a dog bite all by yourself. We are here to give you the compassion and the legal help that you need.
