Animal Bites

Denver dog bite lawyers at Babcock fight to defend animal attack victims by making sure they receive the compensation they deserve

It’s estimated that approximately 5 million people suffer from dog attacks every year in the U.S. Some of these injuries only leave small scars, but others are much more serious –resulting in a long, painful, and costly recovery period.

Whether it is a dog bite or another animal assault, attacks like these are typically unpredictable and always dangerous, not to mention traumatizing, especially for young kids.

If you or someone you love has been victimized by an animal attack, then you may be able to receive compensation for the following damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Infection
  • Bone fracture injury
  • Rabies
  • Nerve damage
  • Death
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • Psychological damage

Leash Laws in Colorado

Although Colorado does not have a statewide law on keeping animals on leashes, many cities, towns, and municipalities within the state have specific regulations to protect their citizens from dangerous roaming animals.

For instance, Denver requires that dogs be leashed and under the control of their owner at all times when not on the owner’s premises.

Statewide, pet owners are legally obligated to give their animals the proper inoculations for rabies and other diseases as specified by the Board of Health. Animals that are not inoculated must remain contained, and are not permitted to run around at-large.

Seek Experienced and Passionate Legal Help

Pet owners are held liable for any injury or damage their animals cause –however, animal attack cases such as dog bites are not always as straightforward as you might think. Complex issues like insurance coverage, the extent of injuries, and proof of negligence means it is crucial for victims to seek legal counsel before agreeing to a settlement in these kinds of cases.

If you have been the victim of an animal attack, then contact Colorado personal injury attorneys at Babcock Law to discuss your case and learn about how representation works.
