- Children are at higher risk for suffering facial and head injuries in the event of a dog bite or animal attack.
- Even “family friendly” breeds like poodles, dachshunds, spaniels, and Chihuahuas have bites that can result in scarring, infection, and psychological trauma..
- Though a dog bite lawsuit may sound simple, animal attack cases actually involve complicated areas of law.
If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal, you know how devastating these events can be. In many cases, a dog bite lawsuit can be a victim’s only way to recover medical expenses and be secure compensated for the pain and suffering.
Dog attacks scar children in many ways.
Because of their short stature, children are at higher risk for suffering facial and head injuries in the event of a dog bite or animal attack. As such, the need for reconstructive surgery is more common among young victims of dog bite attacks. Many times, children require several reconstructive surgeries. While absolutely necessary, these procedures can be very costly. Our team of dog bite lawyers at Justinian & Associates is here to help you through this trying time.
Not only are children susceptible to physical injury from dog bite attacks, they are likely to suffer serious psychological trauma from the attack, requiring treatment from counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, or other mental health professionals. Though mental health treatment may be vital in the full recovery of your child, the cost of these services is not low, particularly without health insurance coverage. Again, the dog bite lawyers at Justinian & Associates will work to secure the dog bite settlement you deserve.
Bites from small dogs can be serious, too.
Dog bite attacks don’t only involve the usual suspects — pit bulls, Rottweilers, and Doberman pinschers — all dogs can bite. Very commonly, “family friendly” breeds like poodles, dachshunds, spaniels, and Chihuahuas have bites that can result in scarring, infection, and psychological trauma. No matter the type of dog that harmed your loved one, the dog bite lawyers at our firm are prepared to help.
Dog bite laws are complex, but getting legal help is simple.
Though a dog bite lawsuit may sound simple, animal attack cases actually involve complicated areas of law called “strict liability,” “negligence,” and “negligence per se.”
Certain factors have an effect on whether dog owners can be held responsible for their animals’ actions, such as:
- Who actually owns the dog;
- The location where the dog bite took place;
- Whether the dog was provoked to attack; and
- Whether the dog could be considered dangerous.
Our team of dog bite lawyers understand these areas of law and are here to answer any questions you may have about dog bite lawsuits.
