Bronx Dog Bite Lawyer
Aggressive Representation for Dog Bite Claims
A dog owner is responsible for ensuring his or her dog does not bite others and will be held totally responsible when they do. The only exception is where the victim antagonizes the dog. Dog bites can be traumatic and require serious medical care including attempting to manage scar removal through plastic surgery. If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, we urge you to contact a Bronx personal injury attorney for assistance.
What to Do in Case of a Dog Bite
There are a number of steps you need to take:
- Identify the dog and its owner. If possible find out if the dog has any diseases.
- Get names and phone numbers of witnesses.
- Seek immediate medical care.
- Make a report to the animal control authorities about the dog.
These steps are crucial for your safety and for the legal claim. If you do not seek care, the insurance company can claim that you were not hurt very badly. If you neglect to notify the animal control authorities, the insurance company will question the credibility of your claim. In cases of loss of life of a child or adult that is the result of a dog bite, a wrongful death claim can be filed. Young children can be severely or fatally injured when an out of control dog attacks them. Their height makes injuries to the neck, head, and upper body often more extreme, with terrible and tragic results. There are specific types of dangerous infections that are transmitted in dog bites, and the scarring can be extensive and permanent.
