On Behalf of | Apr 19, 2019 | Dog Bites, Firm News |

As the summer months approach, people will be spending more time outdoors. This is a great time to enjoy nature, but you have to be careful if you are going to come into contact with dogs. There is a chance that you might come across a dog who is behaving aggressively. Staying out of the way of dogs that are likely to bite is a good idea, but it might not be possible in all cases.

If something happens and the dog does bite you, there are a couple of things that you have to do. One of these is that you have to seek out the medical care that you need to address the wounds. Another is that you need to determine whether the animal is up-to-date on vaccinations. There is a risk of rabies if the dog isn’t vaccinated.

The impact of a bite can be very serious. You might suffer from extreme pain, significant scarring and similar effects. Another possibility is that you will need such extensive medical care that you aren’t going to be able to go back to work right away. This can lead to a decrease in the income you have while you are also dealing with an increase in expenses.

Dog owners are responsible for keeping control of their animals. You do have the option of seeking compensation from the pet owner based on this fact. We are here to help you learn about the process and what you need to do try to receive financial compensation for the injuries that are turning your life into a tailspin.
