Dog Bite Injury Lawyers — To Help You Focus On Recovery

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we handle all legal aspects of your case and all communication with insurance company representatives.

We can even help you find medical professionals who specialize in dog bite treatment — physicians who will not charge you for services until after your injury settlement is finalized.

You should be able to focus on recovery (both physical and psychological) while we pursue your maximum injury compensation. You have been through an ordeal, and you deserve time to heal.

Our Southington-based injury attorneys handle dog bite cases from Hartford to Waterbury, and we regularly handle cases involving dogs whose owners are related to or friends with victims. While we technically sue owners for negligence, insurance companies are really the opponents in any premises liability case.

Holding Insurers Accountable For Injuries In Connecticut

Typically, the dog owner's homeowners, renters or business general liability insurance will cover the costs associated with your injury, which can be significant, both in the short and long term. It is crucial to retain a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with animal attacks and long-term consequences of serious injuries.

Securing The Compensation You Deserve

Many dog bite victims assume that they have no legal options, or feel that taking legal action is not appropriate. Before you make such a decision, speak with an experienced attorney first.

Of the approximately 4.5 million dog bite victims in the United States every year, fewer than 1/10th of 1 percent receive a settlement. A high percentage of victims are children ages 5 to 9.

Know your legal rights and speak with one of our attorneys about your options. Gaining a full understanding of your options through an informative and compassionate conversation will help you make the right decision for you and your family.
