The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that there are about 800,000 dog bites each year. Some of the bites are severe enough to require a doctor's care.
A dog attack can leave a victim with nerve damage, which can be very serious. The nervous system controls everything the body does - from breathing to movement to feeling hot and cold sensations. A dog attack can also leave an individual with emotional trauma. It can take quite awhile to feel safe again.
If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog, first seek medical attention and then consult with an experienced Personal Injury attorney who will fight for you to get compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering.
