With summer almost here, kids must remember to be cautious of dogs

While dog bites are truly tragic no matter the victim, they are especially devastating when they involve children. After all, small children typically have little defense when fighting off a dog attack. With summer vacation quickly approaching for San Diego elementary students, parents need to be even more on guard when their children are playing outside, or playing anywhere near a dog for that matter.

Simply put, the risks dogs pose to children are real. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), children are by far the most common dog bite victims - not to mention those most likely to be severely injured. In fact, the AMVA reports that, of the children aged four years and younger that were bitten by dog between 2010 and 2012, roughly two-thirds suffered injuries to the head and neck.

Dog attacks can lead to cuts and scars to the face, loss of sight and possibly years of plastic surgery. This is why going to a doctor is one of several important steps to take after a dog attack.

However, a child may also have to deal with emotional trauma for the rest of his or her life, including nightmares and other related pain and suffering.

If a dog has attacked your child, the law firm of David P. Beeson & Associates is here to help. We are dedicated to assisting dog bite victims put the pieces of their lives back together and helping them get the compensation they deserve. Under California law, dog owners are legally responsible when their dogs bite another person, including children, so let us help you hold them accountable.
