Dog Bite Injury Lawyer in Los Angeles
About Dog Bite Injuries
There are a number of injuries that may be associated with dog bites or attacks. In the case of an actual dog "bite" a victim may sustain puncture wounds, lacerations, crush injuries, broken bones, and painful bruising. Whether or not the skin is broken, the pain and injury inflicted by a dog bite may be severe. A victim may also suffer injury in a dog attack if he or she is not actually bitten, such as when a dog jumps upon a person or bites his or her clothing and causes the victim to fall to the ground.
No matter the type of injury you or a loved one may have sustained in a dog attack, an attorney at our law offices may be able to help you seek financial damages for what you have experienced. We understand that both bodily and emotional injuries may result from an attack of this kind, and we wish to help you recover the money you need for medical bills, any lost earnings, and possibly more. By evaluating your injuries and your particular case, a Los Angeles dog bite injury lawyer at Pacific Attorney Group can determine exactly how to best assist you.
The Effects of Dog Bite Injuries
A person who has been injured by a dog may face a risk of infection if the wound is not treated immediately. Scarring or disfigurement may also result from a dog bite injury, and these can cause additional stress and emotional trauma to a victim, particularly if they are on the face, head or neck. Seeking medical attention as soon as possible after a dog bite is of the utmost importance, even if you feel that you may not be seriously injured. At the very least, a doctor can determine that you are alright and can go home.
