Dogs can be manís best friend, but vicious attacks by dogs or other dangerous animals can cause serious injury or even death, especially when the victim is a child. Animal bites can cause rabies, and animal scratches can cause infections. If a dog you do not own bit or injured you or a family member, you may have a right to compensation for your hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, scarring, and other damages.
Because many dog attacks frequently involve the head and neck, injuries may involve serious, permanent injuries. Vision or hearing may be affected, and unsightly scarring may be evident. More serious injuries may require multiple surgeries, and emotional scarring may last a lifetime.
Whether the animal is naturally violent, dangerous, or unleashed, if you have been injured, call the experienced injury attorneys at Weaver & Young P.C. for a free consultation today.
