Animal Bites Are More Than Just Dog Bites

Mention the "family pet," and most people envision a dog or cat. However, depending on the regulations in your city, pets can encompass a range of animals, including those we consider traditionally domestic and those that are considered to be more exotic. While we handle many dog bite injury claims, we are also vastly familiar with the injuries that can arise from other types of animal bites and attacks.

Bitten By A Family's Pet? Turn To The Law Firm With Experience

With more than 125 years of combined legal service, our attorneys have encountered a full array of injury claims involving animals. We take on the following types of animal bite claims with the vigor and attention that can be found in the more traditional dog bite case:

  • Cats
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Guinea pigs
  • Ferrets
  • Snakes
  • Birds
  • Horses
  • Cows
  • Goats
  • Sheep

Whether the animal is kept in the family's home, sheltered in their barn or caged outside, most homeowners' insurance policies should cover expenses related to the bite or attack. In our experience, we are aware that some homeowners fail to tell their insurance company about the animals, which can add a level of complexity to your claim.

Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., is adept at handling even the most complex of animal bite claims. We can sift through the details of the attack, assess the long-term implications of your injuries and handle all negotiations and interactions with the insurance company.
