Dog and Animal Attacks
Being attacked by a dog is a traumatic experience that could leave the victim with serious physical injuries as well as mental scars. Depending on the case, the owner of the dog could be held accountable, meaning the victim might be able to seek compensation for medical care and other expenses resulting from the attack.
Dogs are usually thought of as "man's best friend," and in most cases, they are just that. Providing companionship and love, and guarding our homes and businesses, they are usually considered a member of the family. It is that love and devotion however that can turn a friendly animal into a vicious one, sometimes without any warning whatsoever. When a dog believes that someone has encroached upon the territory they have chosen to protect, even if that territory happens to be a public street, they can attack with surprising speed. Getting attacked by a dog is a traumatizing experience. Once you have sought medical care, your next step should be to call a skilled personal injury attorney and find out what your rights are.
