A dog bite can be a traumatic event that results in serious and permanent injury. Vicious dog attacks cause numerous deaths every year. Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States seeks medical attention for a dog bite-related injury. It is further estimated for every dog bite that is reported, three go unreported.
A dog bite will often result in permanent scarring, nerve damage, and a significant risk of infection. Many times, there is psychological harm that lasts well beyond the physical injury.
If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, big or small, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you sustained. Generally, dog owners are liable for any injuries that their pets cause if the owner knew the dog had vicious propensities and/or if the injury was caused by unreasonable carelessness on the part of the owner.
