Fatal Premises Liability Incidents in Virginia

Hampton, VA – Child Attacked and Killed by Dog on Scotland RdEvery year, over one million people seek medical treatment after being attacked by dogs in the United States. Many attacks result in the need for extensive and costly medical treatment. Numerous victims sustain severe cuts and bruises and have to go through surgery and months of medical treatment for their injuries. Small children are particularly vulnerable to sustaining critical injuries due to their sizes. Although we would like to think that everyone is able to recover from their injuries, many people end up passing away.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, families may have legal venues that they are able to take to obtain compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they face related to funerals, lost wages, and other costs they face moving forward.
