When Man's Best Friend Turns Violent

Dogs are widely considered loyal and lovable pets. However, when owners fail to train and restrain "man's best friend," it can quickly become your worst enemy. In many jurisdictions, pit bulls, Rottweilers, Doberman pinschers, German shepherds and wolf hybrids have been declared "dangerous" and are banned or restricted under local laws.

At Williams Newman Williams PLLC, our lawyers represent clients who have been injured — or whose children have been injured — by dog bites and other animal attacks. Although our office is based in Jackson, Mississippi, we help clients throughout the southern United States.

Your attack may have occurred at a private home or in a public venue such as a sidewalk or park. You may have been attacked by a banned or restricted breed of dog. However it happened, our attorneys are committed to holding negligent dog owners and their insurance companies accountable for your injuries.

Dog bite injuries can be very serious and involve considerable pain and suffering. Recovery, especially for small children who are attacked, may involve complex and repeated surgeries, rehabilitation, and prolonged medical care and psychological counseling.

  • Bone fractures
  • Crushed larynx
