The impact that each situation has on our clients makes it even more important that we fight to advocate for their rights and show them we care about their individual circumstance.

According to the Texas personal injury law firm, headquartered out of Central Texas, their client was injured when she was attacked by a cat, which bit her.

Despite their involvement in personal injury accidents, such as 18 wheeler accidents and car crashes, the personal injury lawyers at The Carlson Law Firm also handle legal situations that other firms may turn down. While they take on a variety of cases, the firm aims to maximize results for their clients, seeking just compensation for injuries and loss caused by the negligence of others.

Although animal bites may seem small in contrast with larger accidents involving heavy equipment or car crashes, the injuries that result from a dog or other animal attack can sometimes be severe, resulting in serious injuries, scarring and even death. In addition to injuries and wounds, some animal bites and attacks can result in infection or the need for reconstruction or surgery, especially when vulnerable children are involved.

“At The Carlson Law Firm, we understand that each person who walks through our doors, calls our office, or sends us an email has a situation that matters to them and affects their life and the lives of their loved ones,” Carlson Law Firm Partner, Nicholas Pritchett said. “The impact that each situation has on our clients makes it even more important that we fight to advocate for their rights and show them we care about their individual circumstance.”

While a cat attack accident may seem unique, animal bites can be serious, resulting in extensive medical costs depending on the situation and injury. Dog bites are one of the most common types of animal bite accidents, with as many as 4.7 million dog bites occurring in the U.S. every year, according to the American Human Society (AHS). Almost 800,000 of those dog bite accidents require medical attention.

In some circumstances, where a person is injured in a dog bite incident, the dog’s owner may be held responsible for injuries and medical bills resulting, especially if they have knowledge that the dog is potentially dangerous.

With offices in San Antonio, Austin, Round Rock, Temple, Killeen, Waco, Bryan and Laredo, the animal bite lawyers at The Carlson Law Firm serve clients injured as a result of animal attacks as well as other accidents, including auto collisions, pedestrian accidents, product liability, medical malpractice and other personal injuries.

After all medical bills and attorney fees paid, The Carlson Law Firm’s client received $35,000 (Claim No. 6096390874CTW).
