Did A Dog Harm You Or Your Child?
Though many dogs may seem nice and friendly, they can cause serious injuries to you or your child. Dog bite injuries can be extremely severe, leaving lasting effects. The vast majority of people care deeply about how they look. When an accident causes scarring and disfigurement, the psychological effects of a ruined appearance can be worse for some people than physical pain and suffering.
If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to a financial award to compensate you for your injuries, as well as the extreme emotional distress that could be caused by a ruined physical appearance.
Helping Victims Of Dangerous Dog Attacks Since 1961
Dog bites can be a serious matter, and most dog bite cases involve children. Dangerous dogs like Rottweilers, pit bulls, Dalmatians, German shepherds and others can put toddlers in the hospital with serious injuries like:
- Facial lacerations
- Mauled arms
- Broken bones
- Bite wound infections
Risks To Children
Children run a real risk of being killed when attacked by a dog. Even in nonfatal attacks, the initial injury may require extensive medical care and leave an individual needing plastic surgery to minimize scarring.
