We are able to explain how these laws may apply in your specific case and use them in order to seek the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.

Physical Injuries

The physical injuries that can be sustained as the result of a dog bite can require extensive medical care. Victims often suffer a range of injuries, including:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Torn skin
  • Nerve damage
  • Muscle damage
  • Infections

Scarring is also a major concern after a dog bite. Physical injuries can result in serious scarring that may require multiple plastic surgeries.

Psychological Injuries

Dog bites and animal attacks can also inflict emotional and mental injuries. Individuals may experience an increased fear of dogs, anxiety around animals and other emotional distress due to the trauma they sustained during the attack. These are injuries that need to be addressed by medical professionals and can also be the basis for seeking compensation from the negligent owner of the Rottweiler, pit bull, or other dog or animal that bit you.
