One of our posts last week was about the little girl who was attacked by a dog when she sitting in a van. That little girl has to deal with pain and a barrage of medical interventions. Some of our readers might have wondered what the parents can do in that case. In Florida, the owner of a dog who attacks is liable for the injuries caused by the attack.
For people who are attacked by a dog or any other animal, seeking medical care is often the first priority. Once the medical aspect is taken care of and the emergency situation is handled, the person might start to think about the current and future medical bills. Those bills can be rather costly, especially if the injuries were severe.
One option that some people choose to pursue to help them deal with medical costs and other expenses related to the dog bite is to seek compensation. We use a variety of methods to help show the extent of injuries when one of our clients opts to seek compensation. We can use life-size anatomical models and other state-of-the-art exhibits to help show your side of what the attack was like.
When you think about it, you might realize that there are a host of issues that can come up when you have been attacked by an animal. Wounds might be infected because of bacteria and scarring is likely to occur, but that is only the physical side of the story. You might suffer from emotional trauma, psychological trauma and other similar issues because of the attack.
