Unfortunately, dog bite injuries seem to be on the rise due to more and more dog owners failing to take appropriate steps to control their dogs while in public, and statistically children tend to be the majority of victims. Also, some dogs are considered inherently dangerous like Rottweilers and Pit Bulls due to the strength of their jaws.
The damages you are entitled to are any past and future medical bills, including any damages for future or past cosmetic surgery, loss wages, and of course general damages known as pain and suffering. We also have animal experts that will come in and testify as to dog behavior if needed, to express expert opinion on dog characteristics.
If you think you have a dangerous dog in the neighborhood, I tell my clients to do three things: 1. Talk to the kids in neighborhood; 2. Talk to your adult neighbors; and, 3. Talk to your postman, as he or she will be the best person to know which dogs are about to bite people.
