The Dangers of Dog Bites
Dogs have sharp teeth and powerful jaws; even a relatively small dog can cause serious damage if it attacks a vulnerable part of the body. The potential consequences of a dog attack include:
- Skin lacerations and scarring
- Severe bleeding
- Muscle damage
- Nerve damage
Dog owners must train their pets and make sure they are properly restrained while in public. When they do not, it may be innocent bystanders who suffer the worst consequences.
Other Animal Attacks
While dog bites are the most common kind of animal attack in the US, they are not the only kind. Even cat bites can become infected and lead to serious complications. If you have been harmed by a poorly restrained or supervised animal, our Southfield animal attack attorneys are prepared to fight for you.
Irresponsible pet owners should be held accountable for the harm that results from their negligence. To discuss your potential case with a knowledgeable Southfield dog bite lawyer, contact Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling (866) 644-6587.
