Why Are Dog Bites So Serious?
When you’re bitten by a dog, the damage can be devastating. Even small dog breeds can pack a serious bite, and they can even break bones, depending on where you were bitten.
Dog bites are especially dangerous because they can lead to infection. Canine teeth leave deep puncture wounds, which can be difficult to clean well. That can cause dangerous infections that may impact your health further.
In some cases, you may even need to protect yourself against rabies. Rabies is a deadly nerve disease that requires quick action and a series of injections to protect your health. If you’re not sure whether the dog had rabies, you may need to see a doctor right away.
Liability for a Dog Attack
After a dog bite, you need to know who’s responsible for your injuries. When a dog attacks you without being provoked, you may have grounds to sue, but who’s responsible for your injuries?
Typically, the dog owner is responsible for the costs of your injuries. The owner is responsible for the injuries their pet inflicts on you.
But it’s not always the dog owner’s fault. You and your dog bite attorney may find that the dog had escaped from a kennel, for example. If they failed to prevent the dog from escaping, they may still be liable for your injuries, but things can get complicated. A lawyer can figure it all out for you.
You May Be Due Compensation
Here’s the good news—you may be due compensation for your injuries, and that compensation should cover the costs of your losses and suffering.
You may be eligible for both economic and non-economic damages. That means your dog attack lawyer can help you get compensation for both the financial costs of your injuries and the mental and emotional suffering you experienced.
Below is just a sample of the damages you may face and could get repaid for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage, such as broken eyewear
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
