Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Dog bites can be violent and stressful events. Most people like dogs, but a fear of them can develop if they are the victims of an attack. As friendly as canines may seem, without proper caretaking and training, they can quickly turn into a nightmare for an unsuspecting person. The dog may or may not have been provoked, or triggered by someone or something in the environment. Whatever the case may be, if you were harmed and sustained financial loss, then it’s worth speaking with our Wheaton, MD dog bite lawyer about pursuing compensation from the dog owner. Dog owners are responsible for how their dog behaves and may be liable for any injuries caused. Contact Cohen & Cohen today for further information about how to recoup your damages and losses.

Take Care Of Your Wound

If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, there are crucial steps to take next. Your health is of the utmost importance. Get medical attention if your injuries are worse than what a first aid kit can provide you. Even if your injuries are not severe, you should still get it examined by a doctor in case your symptoms exacerbate. Collect the owner’s information, such as their full name, email address, phone number, and current residential address. Take pictures of your injury. Write down a list of witnesses who saw the dog bite attack occur. Your Maryland dog bite attorney can speak with witnesses for a statement that can be used in your lawsuit against the owner if needed. Tending to your wound and getting medical treatment is essential for not just your health, but your legal case too. Medical documents serve as a form of evidence that your injury claims are valid. Call the police, and file a report with the animal control organization for your city or jurisdiction.

Types Of Dog Bite Injuries

Being bitten by a dog can cause some traumatic injuries, both physically and mentally. Injuries can range from minor scrapes to puncture wounds, broken bones and nerve damage. Those who are bitten by a canine are also at risk of developing an infection. It is imperative that the dog bite is thoroughly washed, rinsed, and continued to be kept clean and dry. Bacteria that can be spread to humans through a dog bite include staphylococcus, eikenella, streptococcus, pasteurella, klebsiella, enterobacter, haemophilus, moraxella, neisseria, porphyromonas, and more. Risk of infection increases based on the severity and location of the bite, and how deep it penetrates through the skin.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
