According to a survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs every year, which is about 1.5% of the U.S. population. Another study by the CDC reports that, on average, 1,000 people seek emergency medical attention each day for dog bite injuries.

Dog Bites and Owner Negligence
Many times dog bites occur because a dog is not properly restrained. Owners are responsible for their pets and the actions of their pets, and if they fail to take reasonable precautions against a dog bite or animal attack, they can be held legally liable for any injuries their pets cause.
Our Minnesota dog bite injury lawyers understand how painful and costly a dog bite or animal attack can be and we are committed to representing those who have been injured. We are prepared to negotiate a settlement with the animal’s owner, or if necessary, we will aggressively argue your case in court. We can help you pursue compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost income from time off work
- Medical travel costs
- Plastic surgery or physical therapy expenses
- Other injury-related costs
Because of their small size and their tendency to try to run, children are especially at risk of being bitten or attacked by dogs and other animals. If you or your child has been hurt by a dog bite or animal attack, we at Robert Wilson & Associates are prepared to represent your case. We have assisted Minnesota residents with a variety of dog bite and animal attack cases and we are proud to apply our experience to your case.
