Dog Bites

Suffering a dog bite or other animal attack can result in serious injuries, many of which can alter a person’s life drastically. If you or a loved one was attacked, bitten or otherwise injured by a dog, speak to one of our experienced Des Moines dog bite attorneys immediately. We will look out for your best interests and help you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law.

With nearly 60 combined years of legal experience, the lawyers at the Beattie Law Firm, P.C., have the knowledge to establish fault in dog bite cases. We also understand that children are often the victims of dog bite attacks, which can create severe stress and emotional difficulties for parents. We will be by your side throughout your entire case, and we will always be available to answer any questions or concerns that might arise.

In Iowa, unless a dog is needlessly provoked, its owners are liable for the injuries their pets cause. In other instances fault can be placed on a dog’s caretaker or another person entrusted with its supervision. At our firm, we will thoroughly investigate your claim and pursue all avenues that are available for you or your child’s recovery.

Dog bites can cause serious and life-changing injuries — severe lacerations, scarring, disfigurement and lifelong emotional damage are few of the many issues you might be dealing with. You and your family can trust the Beattie Law Firm to use all of the resources we have available to see that you get the compensation you need.
