New Orleans Dog Bite Attorneys

Every year, 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs in the US.   Many of those bites result in hospitalization, disfigurement and life-long fear.

But you aren’t a statistic.   You’re an individual who’s been hurt.   You did nothing wrong, but you were still attacked.   Because the owner failed to take care of their dog, you’re left with medical bills and painful scars.

And if your child was the one attacked, the emotional trauma they’ll have to confront – and you’ll have to help with – is heart wrenching.

Dog attacks are often sudden and happen without warning.   The aftermath can leave you reeling as you try and figure out what to do.

If You’ve Been Injured By a Dog:

  • Get the name and address of the owner and any witnesses.
  • File a police report.
  • Take a picture of the dog and any injuries you received.
  • Call an experienced dog bite attorney.

The insurance company will try to wrap things up quickly and get you to settle for as little as possible.   They won’t tell you about your rights, or that you could receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.

That’s why you need the advice of an experienced dog bite attorney.   Hi, my name is Mike Gertler, and I’m a dog bite attorney in New Orleans and a managing partner of the Gertler Law Firm – a Personal Injury Law Firm based in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I help victims of dog attacks negotiate with the insurance company or fight for their compensation in the courtroom.   There’s no excuse for what happened.   And the owner needs to be held responsible for his or her negligence.

If you’ve been attacked by a dog, then give me a call.   Tell me what happened, and I’ll explain your legal options.   You aren’t alone.   We’re here to help.

Please call our office at 504-581-6411…. if the call is long distance, use our toll-free number at 877-581-6411.

The call or meeting is confidential – and absolutely FREE.

If we move forward and pursue a lawsuit for a dog bite, this firm operates on a contingency fee basis – meaning we do not charge for our services unless we secure a settlement for you or are successful in the courtroom.   You will also not have to pay for any costs or expenses related to your case if there is no award or settlement.
