Dog Owners Have a Responsibility

Dogs truly are man’s best friend. However, a certain responsibility comes with owning animals, especially those that can be aggressive toward humans or other animals. This responsibility includes leashing or muzzling dogs when in public, socializing them properly with humans and other animals at an early age, and keeping them properly contained at home. In recent years, there have been a number of cases in St. Louis where dog owners did not live up to that responsibility, endangering the lives of others.
A dog bite is more than the wound you sustain. It’s an attack that can cause lasting emotional distress that requires extensive counseling to overcome. At Cofman Townsley, we believe in holding negligent dog owners accountable, not just for the sake of our clients, but for the sake of the community in which we live. Every dog bite case we handle makes our community a bit safer, and that’s important for all of us.
If you or someone you love was attacked by a dog, give us a call immediately for a free consultation. We’ll investigate the nature of the attack and the injuries sustained to determine the amount of damages you should seek. We’re ready to put our experience to work for you, so give us a call today.
