Dog bites can be very serious and very traumatic. Dog attacks can result in disfiguring facial injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and puncture wounds. Often they result in significant scarring, as well as the risk of infection. Sadly, children are the most common victims of dog bites. This ends up being a very stressful situation for both parent and child.

The owner is responsible for the behavior of their dog. If you or your child are bitten, they are liable. Maine law does not necessarily require that the dog have a history of aggressive behavior for charges to be filed. So not every dog gets “one free bite” as the public often thinks. If you’ve been bitten by a dog in Maine, call a Portland, ME, dog bite lawyer at Lowry & Associates today.

We Hold Negligent Dog Owners Responsible

Dogs have an instinct to protect their territory and their owners. A well-trained dog will bite if they are threatened or defending their master. However, when the owner allows the dog to roam free or doesn’t take the necessary precautions to keep them secure they are accountable for any damage done by their animal.

At Lowry & Associates in Portland, ME, we have successfully represented people who have been injured by both obviously dangerous and previously docile dogs. We can help you get the money you need to recover from your injuries. Furthermore, if the dog is a danger to the public we can take the necessary steps to have it euthanized.

If you or your child have suffered a dog bite, we can help. Proving liability in these situations can be very complicated. Our Portland, ME, dog bite lawyers have the experience necessary to get you the compensation you deserve. There are time limits to file a claim. Don’t wait.
