A person who is bitten by a dog can suffer from serious scarring and possibly disfigurement. These can be easy to conceal if they are in a location where you can cover them with clothing. Bites to the face and hands usually don’t qualify as ones that are easy to hide.
When a person has serious scarring or disfigurement on their face, it can negatively impact every aspect of their life. They might have trouble finding a job due to the way they look. There is a chance that their social life will suffer because of the stigma of these injuries.

This is a complex undertaking since we need to determine the actual damages you have faced but we will work with you to figure this out.
There isn’t any good reason why a person should let a pet loose when there is any chance that the animal will attack a person. Anyone who has to deal with a dog attack might end up suffering from mental health challenges related to the incident.
For a person who has scarring or disfigurement, low self-esteem or feelings of self-consciousness might occur. This is understandable, but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. We realize that this is one area of your life where you might need some extra help. While you focus on this, we can work on building your case and moving through the court.
