The Impact of Dog Bites

Vicious dog attacks can cause serious injuries and can be detrimental to the mental health of victims. For a child, it can be especially harmful. A dog attack in early life can cause a child to have a lifelong fear of dogs, whether a dog is friendly or not. The elderly are also prone to dog bites, causing extra, unneeded health problems.

Dog bites can cause

Deep puncture wounds
Severed fingers
Infections
Permanent scarring

Responsible pet ownership requires proper training and restraint of your pets. Not only are pets often undisciplined by the owner, but the owner is sometimes in denial about the canine’s behavior. Litigation by a good attorney can provide the restitution you need, and can serve as a warning to dog owners about the necessity of proper behavioral training.
