Dog Bite Attorneys Fighting for Those Injured

Dog bite victims face a variety of injuries and health challenges associated with an attack. Any bite can carry bacteria and disease from the dog’s mouth and teeth and these can get into an open bite wound resulting in serious infection. A dog can do some serious damage in a very short period of time depending on the size and breed of the animal.

For particularly severe injuries, a bite victim could require a visit to an emergency room via ambulance. Some of the most common injuries that can result from a dog attack are the following:

  • Deep lacerations
  • Eye injury
  • Loss or impairment of vision
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of fingers
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Heavy scarring
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Head trauma
  • Psychological pain and suffering
Common Reasons Behind a Dog Attack

When an unprovoked dog bite occurs, the owner bears the responsibility for understanding why their pet acted aggressively. In many cases, the primary reason behind a dog bite is the owner’s failure to pay proper attention to their animal. Lack of control and neglect can result in serious consequences for both the owner and the dog.

Beyond inattentiveness, medical conditions can also contribute to a dog’s sudden aggression. Neglected health issues may cause the animal to lash out and bite unsuspecting individuals. Unfortunately, mistreatment and abuse are other common factors in dog bite incidents. A dog that has experienced cruelty or neglect may exhibit aggressive behavior, posing a risk to anyone in its vicinity.

There are no bad dogs, only bad dog owners. A dog is not predisposed to attack or bite someone unless the animal is in danger or feels threatened. But if you are bitten or attacked by a dog and you have not posed any threat to the animal, you could be the victim of a negligent or careless owner who failed to control or supervise their pet.

How to Fight for Compensation

Any victim of a dog bite could be entitled to compensation. Treating a dog bite can require any number of treatments, you could spend an extended period of time in the hospital, you may even need surgery, reconstructive or otherwise, to heal any lacerations you sustain from a bite or multiple bites. You may need to undergo rehabilitation and physical therapy.

What about when you get out of the hospital? You may be wrestling with mental and emotional suffering and post-traumatic stress disorder that could make you very fearful to venture out to your favorite places and especially the location where the dog bite incident originally occurred.

Dog owners who show negligence in the care and control of their animals can be held liable for any injuries that are incurred by others as a result of these actions. But when a dog has bitten or attacked you, the owner may attempt to point the blame on you for the actions of the animal. Therefore, you need to build a strong case against the dog owner. That may require you to prove prior examples of negligence or demonstrate the actions of the owner in other situations where the dog has attempted to attack other people or other dogs.

This isn’t something you should do on your own. You want to get a personal injury firm on your side who has the experience and knowledge to take on your dog bite case and, more importantly, win so you can receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
