Premier Local Counsel We Care Enough to Fight for You

Dog Bite Lawyers in Birmingham

Protecting Victims from Unjust Damages & Expenses

Were you bitten by someone else’s dog? No matter how severe your injuries, you could be entitled to compensation. Dog owners have a responsibility to the general public and when they breach this responsibility, they need to be held accountable.

Alabama statues say that if a dog, without provocation, bites or injures a person at a place where he/she has a legal right to be, the dog’s owner is liable for damages. At Swiney & Bellenger we can help you fight for damages that include medical bills, lost income, future medical treatment, pain, and emotional trauma.

How We Can Fight for You

Insurers often only offer a dog bite victim 10-20% of the damages that they could obtain if they had legal representation. Most bites go unreported and uncompensated, so if you are seeking compensation, you will want to have a committed legal team on your side. At Swiney & Bellenger, we work on a contingency basis, which means that we can advance all of the costs for your case.

Once we have taken on your case, we will get to work investigating the circumstances of the incident. Our thorough Birmingham dog bite attorneys have worked with countless bite victims, so we know what to look for and how to build a strong case.

When we are working on your case, we will:

  • Examine medical reports
  • Take pictures of your injuries
  • Interview witnesses
  • Establish the animal’s ownership
  • Identify other responsible parties
  • Learn the history of the dog who attacked you
  • Get medical professionals’ opinions on your injuries

It is important that you refrain from signing any insurance company documents until you have consulted with a lawyer. Insurance companies can use any information you give them against you.
