Understanding dog attacks

Every year, nearly 5 million dog attacks occur in the United States. Dog attacks are traumatic experiences and can oftentimes lead to serious and permanent injuries. The Law Offices of Sylvia V. Gonzalez has a proven track record of defending victims of dog attacks, and getting victims the compensation to which they are entitled.

The most common ways dog attacks occur are:

  • The dog was not on a leash
  • A dog jumped on a victim and led to them being injured
  • A dog attacked the victim’s dog or loved one, which led to the victim being injured
  • A dog on private property attacked a victim walking on public property
  • A dog on private property attacked an invited guest of the property owner

Victims of dog attacks have rights
