Dog Attacks in Your Neighborhood

Akron dog ordinancesDog bites usually happen close to home. An attack by a neighbor’s dog, a friend’s dog or a family member’s dog. Here are a couple examples from actual residents who have contacted us:

“I was at my friend’s house. His husky bit my hand and wouldn’t let go. I pulled the dog’s jaw open with my other hand and it bit that one too. My hands are pretty bad. I had to go to the E.R. and get stitches. Please call me to discuss what I am supposed to do.” 

“My daughter was bit by my neighbors dog yesterday. The dog crawled under our gate and bit her twice. She has a huge wound on her arm and one on her leg. What can we do about this?” 

We helped these clients take action. Even though the dog owner was a neighbor and a friend. We understand these are sensitive situations where you don’t want to ruin a relationship. Having us handle it helps.

Majority of Victims Are Kids
