It is essential to understanding the effect of the injuries on the client when seeking to achieve the best possible settlement or jury verdict for the injured client.

Injuries Resulting From Dog Attacks

One of the many serious injuries caused by a dog attack is damage to nerves, tendons and ligaments.  The National Center for Disease Control cites puncture wounds and lacerations as the most repetitive injuries experienced in most dog bites. These lacerations or puncture wounds damage underlying nerves, as well as the ligaments and tendons beneath the skin. Nerve damage can have long term implications. Nerve injuries can lead to a loss of sensation and feeling in the affected region, as well as the loss of use or limited control over associated fingers or limbs

Another serious injury resulting from a dog attack is severe permanent scarring. Unfortunately, dog bites can tear skin on the face and limbs and despite immediate professional medical attention these wounds can result in severe and permanent scarring. When these scars are visible, they can have a measurable effect upon the victim’s self-esteem, especially in adolescent girls or young children. Medical technology and techniques have come a long way in recent years, and many of these injuries can be repaired. But the recovery can involve multiple procedures by highly trained specialists.

When you survive a traumatic experience like being attacked by a dog, your world is immediately and permanently changed. It is not uncommon for dog bite victims to experience significant challenges and fears associated with their personal security, and their ability to trust other people and animals. Dog bite victims are often diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the resulting anxiety and fear can alter the normal course of life and make every day events like leaving the house to go shopping a traumatic experience.

Seek The Compensation You Deserve

If a person is injured when a dog pushes him or her down a flight of stairs and fractures his or her legs, that person is entitled to recover compensation from the owner of the dog for the resulting medical expenses, pain, lost wages and even the disability he or she experiences following the incident.
