Types of Injuries Caused By Dog Attacks
While dogs are man’s best friends, they are also very powerful and sometimes vicious animals that still operate on animalistic instincts. In some cases, these instincts result in attacking, biting, and seriously injuring a human being.
Dog bites lead to more than just teeth marks. Serious dog bites can result in:
- Broken bones
- Deep lacerations
- Nerve damage
- Tearing of skin and muscle
- Emotional and mental trauma
Dog attacks often happen to young children, but can also happen to adults. In either case, the traumatizing experience can often lead to a lifetime of fear and anxiety. Our firm can help you with the legal challenges that come with filing a dog bite claim. Getting a personal injury lawyer on your side right away is crucial, since you will need to establish the liability of the dog owner whose negligence resulted in the attack.
Establishing Liability in a Dog Bite Claim
The key to recovering compensation for a dog bite is to prove that the attack was a result of the dog owner’s negligence. Common cause of dog bites include failing to contain or restrain a dog (such as leaving a gate open or failing to maintain a fence), failing to provide proper warning of a dog on the premises, or provoking a dog to attack an innocent party. Our Waterbury personal injury attorney will act quickly to gather and preserve evidence and build a strong argument for your case.
Don’t go through the physical and emotional trauma of a dog attack alone, or especially without compensation. While we cannot turn back time or make it so the event never happened, what we can do is help you fight for justice and a settlement or verdict that covers the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, and emotional suffering.
