The Unique Difficulties Facing Dog Bite Victims
When you, your child or a loved one is attacked or bitten by a dog, the owner of the dog is responsible. These claims are commonly handled under the dog owner’s homeowners insurance policy. While these injuries are serious, painful and expensive, insurance companies are often slow to pay.
With over 40 years of legal experience, the attorneys of Goldstein & Goldstein have represented thousands of clients throughout Ohio. We have won millions in compensation for clients suffering from the negligence of dog owners.
Common Dog Bite Injuries
Dog bites, and other animal attacks, are serious on two separate levels. There is the initial injury and then the following complications. It is not common for dog bite injuries to include:
- Deep punctures
- Damage to the face, neck and eyes
- Nerve damage
- Bacterial infection
- Lasting scars
Because dogs usually only attack when feeling threatened and nearly always lack the proper training to “back off,” attacks can be savage and devastating. It is not uncommon for victims to experience emotional trauma that can last years from this experience.
