We Focus On Your Needs
Properly trained dogs that are well socialized can be wonderful companions. Dogs that are bred to be aggressive, however, such as pit bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds or Doberman pinschers, can cause serious harm to a child or adult if they are not properly trained or cared for. Moreover, beyond the physical injuries, dog bite victims can suffer emotional distress and long-term fear as a result of an animal attack.
At the Law Office of James A. Maniatis, we represent those injured or scarred by dog bites and animal attacks in Worcester and the surrounding areas of Massachusetts. We understand the physical and emotional trauma a dog bite injury can cause and focus our attention solely on meeting your particular needs.
Experienced Shrewsbury Attorney for Animal Bites and Dog Attacks
Under Massachusetts law, dog owners or keepers are strictly liable for any injuries caused by their dog. Other parties who may be held liable for dog bite injuries include property managers who knowingly rent an apartment to someone with an aggressive breed or a dog that has been cited for attacking others in the past.
Our Worcester dog bite injury attorney will help you sort through the legal complexities, focusing on the recovery of all compensation to which you may be entitled. This includes compensation for:
- Medical treatment such as stitches or surgery
- Lost wages if you need extended time off to recover
- Pain and suffering
- The emotional trauma caused by the attack itself
- Treatment for any scarring or disfigurement as a result of the attack
- Psychological counseling, if needed
We take a holistic approach, taking time to understand your circumstances and tailoring our representation to meet your needs. As your advocate, lawyer James Maniatis will negotiate directly with insurance agents on your behalf. He will represent your interests in court if necessary to protect your right to fair compensation.
