Prevention of Dog Bite Injuries

To prevent dog bites, take a few basic safety precautions around dogs and review them regularly:

  • Do not approach an unfamiliar dog.
  • Before petting someone else’s dog, ask the owner for permission.
  • Do not try to pull a toy, a stick, or any item from a dog’s mouth.
  • Do not disturb a dog that is sleeping, eating, or caring for puppies.
  • Do not pet a dog without allowing it to see and sniff you first.
  • Do not run from a dog and scream.
  • Remain motionless (e.g., “be still like a tree”) when approached by an unfamiliar dog and avoid eye contact with the dog.
  • If knocked over by a dog, roll into a ball and lie still with hands over your ears.
  • If a dog attacks you, “feed” him your jacket, purse, or anything that you can put
  • between yourself and the dog.

Teach your children how to be safe around dogs:

  • Do not play with a dog unless supervised by an adult.
  • Immediately report stray dogs or dogs displaying unusual behavior to an adult.
  • If bitten by a dog, immediately report the bite to an adult.
  • Do not approach a dog that is injured. Instead, tell an adult about it

Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
