Indianapolis Dog Bite Injury Lawyer
Dog Bite Lawyers with over 25 years Combined Experience fighting for Dog Bite Victims throughout Indiana
By and large, dogs are loyal, affectionate animals. Millions of Americans care deeply for their dogs. For a variety of reasons, dogs sometimes bite people. When they bite, people can sustain horrible injuries. Children often suffer the worst injuries from dog bites. Children are more likely to suffer bites to the head, neck, and face. These injuries can require extensive cosmetic surgery. The emotional trauma of a dog bite may require therapy as well. After such an injury, a personal injury lawyer can be instrumental in helping you and your child recover appropriate compensation. At Jacobs Law LLC, we understand just how traumatic a dog bite can be. Our Indianapolis dog bite injury attorneys are fully devoted to helping victims of these injuries.
In Indiana, many local communities have slightly different rules for dog bite cases. Our two dog bite lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in helping severely injured people. We will look closely at these laws and help you build a strong case for damages.
We Are Dedicated to Helping Our Clients Maximize the Value of Their Claim
A major part of any personal injury lawyer’s job is finding all available sources of compensation. In dog bite claims, the first place we will look is the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy. In most dog bite cases, this is where the injured person will turn to for his or her medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.

If the dog that bit you is excluded from the homeowners’ policy, we will search for alternative sources of compensation. All of our efforts will be geared to helping you recover full compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and other appropriate damages.
