Being attacked by a dog is a frightening experience, and a dog bite can leave you with a serious injury. Owners are legally responsible for the injuries their dogs cause but recovering the compensation you deserve can be a complicated process. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for you.
Some dog bite injuries are minor, but others are more serious and may require surgery and other medical treatment. Children and people who are afraid of dogs can suffer psychological effects from the attack.

Dogs can attack the hand, head, neck or abdomen. A dog bite can result in punctures, tearing or ripping, scratches and lacerations. Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple appointments with doctors. Skin grafts and other types of follow-up surgery may also be needed.
