Dogs are important members of millions of families in America. But even though most dogs are kind and gentle animals, all dogs have the potential to bite and seriously injure people—even if they have no history of aggression. And all breeds, regardless of their size, can cause serious and complication-ridden injuries when they bite.
For example, it’s common for dog bite victims to experience a host of secondary problems afterward, including profuse bleeding, nerve damage, and infection. Some dog bite victims may even lose partial or complete feeling and control of affected body parts, including hands and fingers. These complications can severely disrupt victims’ quality of life and ability to work and earn a living.
Despite those severe consequences of being bitten, many dog bite victims never seek compensation. That means they’re on the hook for their own medical bills, all while trying to keep their heads above water when they’re unable to work. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we believe this is unacceptable.
Dog owners are required by city and local ordinances to keep their pets enclosed or leashed, and when they fail to do so and their dogs bite people, they can and should be held liable.
