Batavia Dog Bite Lawyer

Millions of people keep dogs and other animals as treasured pets and companions. Dogs have been kept this way for hundreds of years and have, through their devotion and service, earned the title of “man’s best friend.” Despite this, however, they still have fangs and strong jaws and so should be approached and treated with caution and respect.

Regardless of an animal’s history of domestication, pets still retain some of their wild animal instincts. Because of this, they sometimes react to situations with violence even though we as humans cannot understand why. It has been estimated that roughly 5 million Americans each year are injured through encounters with dogs. Of those 5 million incidents, one out of every six requires the victim to seek medical attention.

If you have been injured by a dog or other animal, contact the Batavia dog bite lawyers at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733.

Common Dog Bite Injuries

When dogs turn on humans, there are a number of injuries that commonly result. Some of them are:

  • Lacerations and other deep cuts
  • Soft tissue injuries or bruising
  • Disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Emotional distress or scarring
  • Physical distress or scarring
  • Scar tissue buildup
  • Physical impairment or disability

Those who have been attacked by an animal, particularly one kept as a pet, may be able to receive compensation for the injuries that occurred. Compensation may be available for medical bills, counseling, or other losses that occurred as a result of the injury.

Animal attacks can lead to long term injuries and disabilities that have the potential to affect a person for the rest of his or her life.
