Economic Dog Bite Damages
Getting injured in a dog attack can get expensive. Unexpected medical bills like this can cost someone their home. Having to take time off of work to get treatment and to recover can be a risk to your job as well.
If there is an infection, the recovery period can be prolonged. You can be on the mend for quite a while and even be unable to return to the same level of work you were doing before. Tendon and muscle damage can leave you with mobility issues either temporarily or permanently.
Economic damages include all of your medical expenses both past and future. It also includes any of your lost wages. You will be fighting the liable party to receive the full amount of what you have spent because of this dog bite incident.
Non-Economic Dog Bite Damages
With a dog attack, non-economic damages can be substantial. The non-economic damages of a dog bite include emotional trauma, physical damage, and pain and suffering.
Especially when children are attacked by a dog, it is strongly recommended that they seek psychiatric help. Mayo Clinic also emphasizes the importance of a psychiatrist reintroducing a child to a dog after they are released from the hospital. It is the same theory that someone who was caught up in an undertow and had to be rescued from the water should go back into the water that day or they will never touch water again.
The scarring on someone’s body after a dog bite can warrant substantial compensation. The pain and suffering that a victim goes through also warrants fair compensation from the liable party as well.
When you want full compensation, it is important to work alongside a skilled and dedicated lawyer who knows how to successfully navigate these critical cases.
