Dog And Animal Bites

Dogs and other animals that people keep as pets can be unpredictable. The owners of dogs are strictly liable for injuries caused by their animals. This means that, barring certain circumstances, a person who is injured by a dog needs to be compensated by the dog's owner.

Dog bites and other types of animal attacks can create serious wounds, scarring and disfigurement. Plastic surgery may be a necessary part of the recovery process. Victims of animal attacks may also experience emotional issues related to the attack or self-esteem difficulties related to visible scarring.

Was Your Child The Victim Of A Dog Attack?

There are a number of factors that differentiate dog attacks involving children, including:

  • Children are less likely to recognize signs that an animal may be dangerous.
  • Children are shorter; making vital areas such as the face and neck more open to injury.
  • Children are smaller; meaning a child may be less able to fight off a dog attack.
  • Children are still developing emotionally. Prominent scarring can have an especially strong impact on their self-esteem. The trauma of the experience may have a deeper impact.
