Emotional Damages After a Dog Attack
The emotional damage that someone faces after being attacked by a dog is often overlooked. There can be deep psychological wounds associated with the event.
In some cases, people have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which is a mental health condition associated with a traumatic event.
The mental and emotional damages from a dog bite should be fully considered when your compensation award is being calculated.
Physical Damages After a Dog Attack
Being bitten by a dog puts you at risk of getting an infection. Not only could the dog give you rabies, but you could also end up with an infection of the bite wounds themselves. Treating an infection can be very unpleasant.
Your attack can result in scarring and disfigurement which entitles you to substantial compensation if it is in a visible place such as your hands or face.
You may also experience issues with the damage the dog did to you. Dog bites can damage tissue and tendons. It can give you severe injuries.
Get Full Compensation
You deserve to have full compensation for your damages, both emotional and physical. We fight against the liable party’s insurance company to give you the justice that you deserve.
This requires that we determine the liable party. This is typically the dog owner/homeowner. For example, if someone failed to fix their gate, and their dog got out while you were walking by, they would be liable for your damages and injuries.
From there, we will fight against their insurance company to give you the results that you deserve.
