Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2014 -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. Nearly half of all dog bites happen to children. Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer, is pleased to offer dog bite consultation services this October for both adult and child victims of dog bites. Consultations are available with the firm’s accident lawyers in Philadelphia.
It’s reported that many dog bites happen in the home and could be considered provoked attacks. However, every day there are unprovoked dog bites involving innocent victims. Bikers, runners, playing children and pedestrians – all are at risk. Some injuries are minor and don’t need medical treatment. However, the worst dog bite injuries will require reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation. Someone has to pay for expensive emergency room visits and follow up procedures.
Owners are entirely responsible for their dog’s behavior. When a dog owner shirks responsibility, or asserts that the dog was provoked by the person it bit, a consultation with Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer, can help assess who is at fault. The firm guides dog bite victims through the complicated legal process and helps them discover if damages can be attained. Whether it’s a pit bull, German shepard, or a poodle, the law office handles cases involving all types of dogs.
In addition to being a dog bite lawyer, Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer, is a slip and fall attorney in Philadelphia. Other areas of practice include motor vehicle accidents, premises accidents and workers compensation.
