Dog Bite Lawyers
Pet ownership can be a tremendously rewarding and relaxing experience. Owners who put in the time and effort necessary to properly train their dogs will have a loving, loyal companion and a true friend.
However, the sad reality is that many owners do not put in this effort. Dogs attack innocent people for a variety of impossible-to-comprehend reasons, and the resulting injuries can be significant. According to a study from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, with 800,000 of those bites resulting in the need for medical care.
When you have been bitten by a dog that is not your own, you have the right to expect that the owner’s dog will pay for the injuries you have suffered. At The Cochran Firm, our personal injury lawyers are equipped to help if you’ve suffered a dog bite. We’ll treat your attack with the seriousness it demands. Our personal injury attorneys have years of experience representing innocent victims, and we can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of a dog bite attack and would like to speak to a personal injury attorney, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
Why You Should Speak to a Dog Bite Lawyer
At The Cochran Firm, we’re familiar with the psychology of the victims of these attacks. Many dog bite victims are reluctant to pursue legal action for fear of appearing litigious or even “silly;” popular culture often heaps scorn on people who speak to a personal injury lawyer after these incidents.

Our experienced dog bite lawyers can help by:
