Dog Bite Attorneys in Rhode Island

Holding Negligent Owners Accountable for Victims' Injuries

There may be no other category of injury that is more horrific than a dog bite. Being attacked by an animal not only leaves the victims with physical injuries, but they can frequently suffer from severe emotional damage as well. This can be especially true for children who naturally love animals and would never imagine that one could be vicious.

Dog owners have a responsibility to keep their animals under control at all times. When they fail to do so and innocent people are injured, owners can and should be held accountable for any losses suffered by their victims. If you or a loved one was injured in a dog bite incident or another type of animal attack, you should seek the advice of a reliable dog bite attorney in Rhode Island as soon as possible.

Call Karns & Kerrison at (888) 281-3100 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Seeking Justice for Dog Bite Victims
