Holding Owners Liable for Dog Bite Injuries to Children Attorney

Dog bites or maulings and animal attacks are a leading cause of serious injury in the United States, and when they involve children, the chances of serious injuries increase. Each year, more than 300,000 dog bite and animal attack victims are forced to seek medical treatment for their injuries, and a dozen or more fatalities occur in the United States.

Often, the victims are children who face severe, lifelong emotional trauma. Other times, the injured are people who routinely work in or near strangers' homes, such as postal carriers, meter readers and delivery drivers.

California animal attack lawsuits are based on laws that make people who own dogs responsible for preventing such attacks. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and suffering. A San Diego dog bite attorney from The Law Offices of David P. Beeson & Associates can help. Contact a San Diego dog bite attorney at The Law Offices of David P. Beeson & Associates for a free consultation.

Living With the Effects of a Dog Attack: Children and Workers

Sadly, many of the victims of dog bite attacks are children, and they tend to be injured on and around the face. These injuries can cause scars, and the physical and emotional effect can last a lifetime. In addition to medical treatment, child victims of dog attacks often require psychological counseling to cope with the aftermath of the attack.

If you were attacked by a dog while on the job, on the other hand, your physical and emotional trauma may be the least of your worries — even though it may affect your ability to do your job long term. You may need compensation for lost work, increases in self-insurance costs, doctors' bills, rehabilitation, plastic surgery, rabies shots and other treatments, and other costs.

Severe Injuries From a Small or Seemingly Friendly Dog

Maulings causing serious injuries don't always come from pit bulls or Rottweilers. Even a small dog can cause severe injury or even a child fatality, as in the well-publicized attack a few years ago in Los Angeles, in which an infant was killed by the family Pomeranian, a very small dog. When a victim is young — or old — the injuries can be particularly severe.

Persons who have suffered these horrific injuries deserve compensation for their losses and suffering. A San Diego dog bite lawyer at The Law Offices of David P. Beeson & Associates may be able to help you get the resources you need to recover your life after the attack.
