Every year, innocent people are attacked by dogs. Dogs on the loose attack
strangers and sometimes a dog on a leash will attack someone who the dog
already knows. Regardless of the scenario, everyone has rights –
and that includes not being a victim to dog attacks. If you or someone
you know has been attacked by a dog,
it is your right to get a personal injury lawyer.
Lawsuits are not uncommon for dog attacks. They can teach the owner of
the dog responsibility and hold them responsible for the actions of the
dog. Being bitten by a dog can be a very scary scenario – one that
can cause a lot of trauma for many years to come. These attacks can also
cause a great deal of physical damage, as well as emotional and financial damages.
Being bitten by a dog can lead to:
Dog Bite Victims May Experience:
- Being nervous near dogs
- Fear of going outside
- Emotional trauma
- Physical pain & suffering

It isn't right that you have to pay medical bills and deal with emotional
trauma because a dog attacked you. There have been many cases where people
have been able to get financial compensation for their medical bills and
suffering because a dog owner could not control their pet. Compensation
may include the costs of medical treatment, therapy expenses, lost work
wages, as well as pain and suffering, among other damages.
A recent survey showed that there are over 4 million dog bite attacks every
year. While most of them are not fatal, the amount of attacks is alarming.
Additionally, about half of the dog bites are to children and half of
those are in the face, often leaving children disfigured and scarred for
life. Asserting your rights and holding a dog owner accountable may also
help prevent similar attacks from happening in the future.
