Virginia Dog Bite Lawyers

Let Us Give You the Help You Need

An animal attack is a terrifying experience, even for animal lovers. Aside from the physical injuries, the mental trauma can live on in the victim’s memory, sometimes changing their behavior towards animals completely, and making it difficult to lead a normal life because of a heightened sense of fear.

Failure of animal owners to ensure the safety of others by controlling their animals is a form of negligence for which you may be entitled to make a claim for negligence.

Some of the most aggressive dog breeds include:

  • Pit bulls
  • Rottweilers
  • Dobermans
  • German shepherds
  • Siberian huskies
  • Malamutes
  • Bull terriers
  • Bulldogs
  • Wolf-dog hybrids
  • Chow-chows
  • Great Danes

Sudden Trauma

Imagine that you are taking a walk with a friend or family member when, out of nowhere, a dog leaps at you and begins to savagely bite you. Even worse, think what would happen if your child was overpowered by a fierce dog and you were unable to prevent serious injury. Sadly, this is a common occurrence, and hospitals often see the horrific injuries caused by dog and animal attacks. Of course, the real culprits here are animal owners who fail to take reasonable precautions to prevent their animals from attacking others.

The statistics for dog attacks in the United States are quite alarming:

  • Approximately 1 million dog bite incidents every year
  • Approximately 2% of the population has suffered a dog bite injury
  • Most dog bite victims are children
  • 77% of dog bite injuries to children involve damage to the face
  • Most dog bite cases involve chained or confined dogs, not strays

How to Protect Yourself

If a dog or other animal has bitten you, you may have sustained considerable pain and disfigurement. Medical expenses can leave you feeling even more traumatized. You may never fully recover from the psychological effects of the event, and this may interfere with your ability to carry out your job or enjoy activities that may bring you into contact with animals. The emotional and financial impact of your injuries may be difficult as well, and you might feel inadequate to pursue a case against the negligent party.
