Recovering compensation for injury sustained from dog

An attack by a dog is an intensely painful occurrence that leaves behind both physical and mental scars. In addition to this, victims can often wind up with costly medical bills as a result of the care required to repair the damage inflicted, including lacerations, contusions, infection, and even broken bones.

Common causes for animal bites

More often than not, the indirect cause of injuries inflicted by animals is the negligence and irresponsibility of the owner. The most common reasons for animal-inflicted injuries are:

  • Weak, unlocked, or poorly constructed fencing or crates
  • The owner’s misuse or lack of use of a leash
  • The dog’s exposure to an abusive or violent environment in its owner’s home
  • Negligence of the owner to treat medical problems

Injuries resulting from such negligence warrant an investigation into the legal culpability of the owner and may make you eligible for financial compensation.
