I consulted with Brooke and found her to be genuine, informative, knowledgeable and a person who would advocate for me. Her demeanor and compassion made it very evident that should I ever need further assistance, she is truly the one I would hire.”
I just want everyone to know that I had Brooke represent me after a big box firm treated me like just another paycheck like I was nothing. I’m glad I made the swap.”
Brooke gave me her cell number and usually returns my call that day or the next if I don’t reach her. Brooke is the type of lawyer I want in my corner!”

    Helping You Seek Justice

The injuries from such attacks can cause nerve damage and leave victims scarred for life. Additionally, the victim may experience fear, anxiety, and other extensive physical or emotional damages.

    The most common animal bites in Connecticut are dog bites. If such an attack happens, seek medical care immediately and take pictures of the animal if possible. After that, contact the team at Goff Law Group - West Hartford so our dog bite attorneys can help you fight for fair compensation in the aftermath of this incident.

    What You Should Do After a Dog Bites You

    If you recently sustained a dog bite, it's imperative that you take the proper steps to ensure your own well-being and protect your legal rights. Thankfully, the certified dog bite attorneys at the Goff Law Group are always standing by to provide support. No matter the severity of the bite, our team is prepared to administer contemporary counsel.

    After a dog attack, be sure to identify the dog's owner, request their contact information, and inquire about the dog's vaccination records. Next, our dog bite attorneys suggest that you contact animal control to report any bite or scratch that breaks the skin. Most importantly, you must receive medical attention for your bite, as these particular bites carry a high risk of infection. Be sure to save all paperwork related to your treatment. Lastly, gather evidence of your attack, including photographs of the scene, and the contact information of any witnesses.

    What Dog Owners Must Do after a Dog Bite

    Dog owners must quarantine any dog who bites a person. If the dog is a stray, officials of the city where the bite happened will need to send animal control to find, quarantine, and observe the animal. In the event that the dog has a transmittable disease, quarantining him will ensure others are safe.
