Many of us are the happy and proud owners of loving dogs that are part of our families. In fact, New Mexico ranks 2nd in the nation for dog ownership with 46% of New Mexico’s households owning a dog, according to the American Veterinary Association. Most dogs are not aggressive and do not pose a threat. Unfortunately, there are some dogs that can be vicious, aggressive and threatening. Moreover, there are dog owners that fail to properly control or contain their dogs, creating a risk to other people for dog attacks.
The injuries from dog attacks can be serious, both physically and emotionally, and leave permanent scarring and disfigurement long after the wounds have healed. We have helped many people, both adults and children, who have been attacked by dogs to recover the damages they have suffered. If you find yourself or your loved one injured in a dog attack, contact Sanchez & Piñon to see how we can help you.
