Dogs Are Man’s Best Friend, Until They’re Not
Many people consider dogs to be a part of their family. It’s understandable that people are protective and defensive of their beloved pets. However, dogs are still animals and can be unpredictable, especially when the dog is not your own pet.
When a dog bite happens, serious injuries can result. The injuries may be to any part of the body, but especially the face, arms and legs. Bite injuries may be minor, but often they are serious. Our cases have ranged from a dog biting a nose off to a dog seriously scarring a young child’s face.
Mental Trauma Often Results
In additional to visible physical injuries, being the victim of a dog bite may cause mental trauma and stress. As a result of a mauling, a victim may have lingering effects and fears from the event. Beyond the physical scarring, a victim may have emotional stress and require therapy and other treatment to address mental health concerns. When an animal attacks, you may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other anxiety.
