Dog Bites

Work With Trusted Honolulu Premises Liability Lawyers

Hawaii laws governing dog ownership and dog bites indicate all owners that take responsibility for a dog are just that — responsible. Dog owners are held liable for ensuring that their pet stays safe and restrained on their property, and any escape or injuries caused by the dog will be the responsibility of the owner. This includes dogs that have a known history of being aggressive, as well non-aggressive dogs. If you or a loved one has been injured, we encourage you to contact a Honolulu dog bite lawyer from Turbin Chu Heidt right away.

Dog bite injuries can have long-term complications and negative effects, including:

  • Trauma, both mentally and physically

Past Success In Dog Bite Cases

While dogs are said to be a man’s best friend, we have seen dogs turn and attack, causing serious, and sometimes fatal injuries. In 2001, our lead attorney, Mr. Richard Turbin, was able to successfully represent two elderly gentlemen in Hawaii who were severely attacked by neighborhood dogs.

The success of this case brought the gentlemen compensation and peace-of-mind in knowing that justice had been served. Our history of success and more than 35 years of experience have helped us advance many cases to obtain favorable outcomes. After a dog bite injury, you should work with a Honolulu personal injury lawyer that has been successful in dog bite cases!
