Victims Of Dog Bites May Be Entitled To Compensation
Dog bites and other animal attacks can leave lasting physical and emotional injuries on all victims, especially children. Medical bills, time away from work, and pain and suffering resulting from the injury can take a financial toll on an entire family. The dog or animal owner must take responsibility for the actions of the animal and are liable for compensating the victim for his or her losses.

Injuries From a Dog Bite
After your initial visit to a medical facility for treatment after a dog bite (from a Pit Bull, Rottweiler or other type of dog), there may be lasting injuries that require additional medical care and treatment, including:
- Disabilities or impairments
- Nerve damage
- Tissue damage
- Future emotional distress (fear of dogs)
Any of these injuries may lead to further medical care, such as plastic surgery to deal with scarring or treatment for infection of the wound. It may be possible to sue for future medical costs, if doctors are anticipating that your injury will need future treatment.
After a dog bite, your injury should be evaluated and treated by medical personnel. Also, any evidence must be preserved in order to build a case against the owner of the dog that bit you. We can begin gathering evidence and investigating the case immediately after being retained as your legal counsel.
