Dog Bite  Accident Attorney


2 + 5 =


Dog owners must ensure their pets are well-behaved and harmless, but this is not always the case. Every year, in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the Virginia area known as the DMV, dozens of individuals suffer dog bites that affect their health, work, and future lives. Despite laws and regulations around pet ownership, people are still getting bitten by dogs every day.

At The Law Offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, headquartered in Maryland, our attorneys represent victims of dog bites in personal injury cases. Many of our clients are individuals who were simply going about their daily lives but were injured due to a dog owner’s negligence.

Across the United States and the DMV, dog owners are not always attentive to their dogs’ behavior. The most common reason for this is distraction, with smartphones being a prime example. Texting, surfing the internet, and other activities distract the dog owner’s attention from their pet, leading to an increase in dog bite incidents. Dog bite cases are challenging, as we have to prove that the victim was more than 99 percent innocent and the owner was more than 99 percent at fault under the strict liability rule known as the 1 percent rule. Therefore, when we handle your case, we fight to prove your innocence in the incident, and secure the compensation you need and deserve. Our lawyer and staff will fully investigate your case, identify every liable party, and work tirelessly to hold them accountable.

When Dogs Attack in Parks, Streets and Private Properties

As a dog bite victim, you should know that you have options — even if you were harmed by a dog whose owner fled the scene. Our attorney represents people who have been injured in hit-and-run accidents involving dogs. These incidents are more common than many people realize, and the number of casualties is rising with more dogs in homes than ever before.

We use the latest technology and have decades of real-time experience to handle dog bite cases. When necessary, we will partner with medical experts and investigators to efficiently and effectively prepare your case for trial. While most of our personal injury cases do settle, thorough trial preparation helps our firm negotiate a full and fair amount. If we cannot negotiate a favorable outcome for you, we do not hesitate to take your case to trial to achieve the best possible results.

Knowledgeable Advice From A Former Nurse

At our firm, we pride ourselves on being able to handle bike accident claims aggressively and effectively. Adding to our ability to fight the insurance company is the inclusion of a former nurse on our legal team. Now a paralegal, she is able to use her knowledge and experience with injured people to enhance the representation we provide.
