About Animal Attacks
Pet owners have the responsibility to properly care for the pets, including training them to be safe around other people. Unfortunately, many pet owners either do not take the time or feel it is too expensive to properly train their dog, and the result can be a vicious animal that is a danger to all those in the neighborhood or who may be passing through. If a dog owner has not trained their dog and it attacks an innocent person, they will be held liable for the damages suffered in the incident. It is important that you contact a knowledgeable lawyer as soon as possible to determine your options and assist you with the legal process of pursuing compensation for damages you or a loved one suffered after a dog or animal attack.
Impact of Animal Bites
In some cases, another animal may attack an innocent victim. This can include almost any type of animal that for some reason feels threatened and harms a human being. There have been attacks by horses, cows, and wild animals that are kept as pets, as well as many other types of animals that have taken place over the years. Most animal attacks are related to dangerous biting dogs, and certain breeds have proven to be particularly dangerous to humans. Dog bites can cause severe infections, facial lacerations and punctures, scalp wounds and disfiguring injuries. Some young children and even adults have lost their lives in a very severe incident. As children are so much smaller, the injuries they suffer can be terrible, and may take years of reconstructive surgeries to attempt to resolve.
