Owning dogs can truly enrich people’s lives, and they are often considered valuable members of the family. Unfortunately, some owners do not provide the care and training required to temper their dogs’ behavior and actions. The Chicago dog bite injury lawyers of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers encourage responsible dog ownership, but also believe that owners are obligated to provide compensation to anyone harmed by their animals. We’ve also found that in more cases than not, the aggressive and ruthless actions of a dog are a reflection of the treatment it has received from its owner. Seeking restitution is one of the most effective ways to punish abusive or irresponsible owners.

Dog Attacks Leave Marks on the Body and Psyche

Everyone knows a friend or relative that is deathly afraid of dogs and other wild animals, and this fear often stems from a violent experience with a dog at a young age. The impact of an attack can leave physical and psychological scars. Some victims suffer from anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder while others must cope with the visible appearance of scars that diminish their appearance and are the source of ridicule. Injuries suffered in dog attacks include the following:

  • Puncture wounds and lacerations that have an increased risk of infection due to the microbes found in the animal’s saliva.
  • Deep tissue and nerve damage, which may result in physical impairment.
  • Unsightly scars that require years of surgical procedures to repair.
  • Emotional distress due to the appearance of scars, fear of being subject to another attack or post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Broken and shattered bones or joints. Bites are not the sole form of attack and dogs may knock victims over or the victims may become injured in an attempt to flee from the aggressive animal.
