A dog bite can cause irreparable and very serious injuries, particularly to a child. Owners of dogs or other dangerous animals can prevent the animal or dog from causing injury to a person simply by keeping the animal in such a manner that it cannot harm people. Because injuries by dogs or other dangerous animals can be easily prevented, laws regarding such injuries are very strict. A court can even order a dog to be put to death if it causes serious injury to a person or another domestic animal on two separate occasions, and the owner was notified after the first instance that the dog caused an injury.
Dog Bite Lawsuits
In order to preserve your rights to be compensated for injuries caused by a dog bite, attack or any other injury by a dangerous animal, you must file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out. If a lawsuit is not filed, then rights to compensation may be lost.
Injuries Caused by Dog Bites
Often times, the severity of all of the injuries caused by a single dog bite or attack by a dog or other viscous animal are not immediately known or discovered during the initial medical examinations. In many instances, the damage to muscle or other soft tissues becomes apparent only after a period of time to allow the immediate injuries to heal. Unfortunately, some cases involve death, which may occur immediately, or after a period of time when complications arise.
