Man’s best friend, the dog, is generally a well mannered, well behaved, docile creature that lives to serve its family or owner. While dogs have earned their reputation as man’s best friend, they still need to be approached cautiously and treated with loving respect. This detail is forgotten by many with devastating consequences.

Even though dogs and other pets have been domesticated for thousands of years, they are still animals whose instincts may cause them to react badly when placed in some situations. Pet owners are responsible for keeping control of their animals at all times, especially when a pet acts in a manner that endangers the safety of others.

Unfortunately, some pet owners are not as diligent as they should be in handling their pets. As a result, nearly five million people are injured in domestic animal encounters each year. Of those five million people, one sixth will require medical treatment or attention for the injuries that result. If you have been injured because of an animal attack, contact the personal injury lawyers at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733.

Consequences of Animal Attacks

The most common permanent and temporary results of dog bites and injuries include:

  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Accumulation of scar tissue
  • Bone fractures
  • Serious or deep cuts and lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Emotional distress and/or scarring

Those who own or claim ownership or responsibility for a dog or other animal that has been accused of or seen attacking a person are legally responsible for the injuries that their animal has inflicted.
