Dog Bite Lawyers
Dog bites and attacks can be every bit as mentally and emotionally traumatic as they are physically painful and damaging. Negligent dog owners can often be held responsible for any injuries sustained by the victim of a dog bite or attack. Our skilled personal injury attorneys will defend your rights and take every available course of legal action necessary to restore your health and recover fair compensation.
The Dangers of Dog Bite Injuries
Every day, about 1000 U.S. citizens require emergency care for dog bite injuries. The injuries sustained in dog bite attacks usually require immediate, on-site medical treatment. Along with treatment by paramedics, ambulance transportation and further medical care at the hospital may also be required. Dog bite wounds can become infected due to bacteria and diseases carried by the attacking dog, which only increases the need for immediate and thorough medical treatment. Common injuries resulting from a dog bite or attack include:
- Deep lacerations
- Extensive scarring
- Emotional trauma
