How bad is a dog attack accident?
Dog attack accidents can be devastating and traumatic. Victims often require serious and expensive medical attention, as well as antibiotics. Sometimes, emergency medical transport is necessary following an animal attack. Our expert personal injury attorneys will fight for full and fair compensation for any injuries you may have suffered in one of these situations, including:
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Eye injuries
- Severe infections, such as rabies
- Amputations of fingers and nose
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones from falling due to an attack
- Psychological trauma
If you are not medically insured, contact Colony Law immediately to protect your health. Treatment may be expensive and impossible to get without medical coverage, and our firm may arrange for medical expenses to be paid for once a settlement is reached. We will arrange your treatment regardless of the cost or extent. You do not have to pay our firm until a settlement has been reached in your favor, based on our contingent fee.
What causes a dog attack in the first place?
Lack of control over one’s pet can lead to dangerous interactions between the animal and those around it. One or more of the following causes may be at play:
- Irresponsible care for the animal
- Lack of medical care for the dog
- Abuse or mistreatment
Immediately after a dog bite, it is imperative that you clean the affected area and seek medical attention, even if you feel that you are alright. Adrenaline may mask the full severity of your injury. Don’t worry, you will be compensated for medical costs incurred at the hands of a dog owner’s recklessness.
