The Devastating Consequences Of Dog Bites
Big or small dogs can cause serious injuries. The breeds most prone to biting are pit bulls and German Shepherds, but any breed can harm a person. Even a friendly dog, if large enough, can knock down a human in a friendly greeting gone wrong. Some of the most common injuries resulting from dog bites are:
- Puncture wounds
- Painful infections
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Psychological trauma
Dog bites can leave victims devastated, requiring extensive medical treatment, pain medication and even reconstructive surgery. Our law firm is dedicated to helping victims obtain the resources they need to pay for medical bills, wage loss and other hardships caused by the negligence of dog owners and other parties.
Standing Up For Injured Children
Sadly, the majority of dog bite victims are children. A child may misinterpret a dog’s hostile behavior as playful, thereby putting himself or herself at risk. This is not the child’s fault. Owners are responsible for keeping the pets from injuring others, especially when children are or can be expected to be present.
Our law firm has extensive experience representing injured children. We apply trial-tested legal strategies to pursue fair and just compensation for injuries, pain, suffering and trauma that may affect a child for life.
