A dog bite is an especially upsetting kind of injury. These incidents often happen in your neighborhood, where you feel most safe, and they can lead to extensive, painful medical treatment. When you’re recovering, you want to know your attorney understands how to pursue compensation for you.

As a firm that focuses on injury law, we know what struggles lie ahead for dog bite victims. We pay attention to what our clients say they need and build a case around pursuing the compensation they deserve.

The Dangers Of A Dog Bite

While a dog may be “man’s best friend,” a dog’s bite can be quite dangerous. For the most part, when a dog bites a person, it is when the dog feels endangered or cornered – whether or not that is the case. Dog bites are known for:

  • Infections: Many dogs carry a variety of bacteria in their mouths; a puncture wound can quickly become infected, leading to nasty complications.
  • Viciousness: An angered or scared dog will attack without compunction and does not have an “off switch.” They will attack and bite until the danger has ended.
  • Post-traumatic stress: Even a “dog lover” can have immense trouble finding comfort around a dog after a vicious attack.
  • Scarring: Many dog bite injuries can result in permanent scarring or disfigurement.

These kinds of results are life-altering injuries and conditions. We will pursue the compensation you deserve to get back on your feet.
