Being bitten by a dog can be a traumatizing event that leaves lasting wounds and scars. When dog bites are discussed, many people may not realize the levels of damage that a dog can do to a person. As we live in such close proximity to dogs, it can be easy to underestimate their capacity to cause harm. Every year, people are killed or maimed by vicious dogs.

If the victim of a dog attack is a child, the potential for harm is even greater as the child is much less capable of putting up sufficient fight to be able to repel a vicious dog. Further, if a child is the victim, the impact of any scarring on the face, which is a common area for dog bites on children, or any other visible body part may have a lasting emotionally traumatizing effect.
If your child has been the victim of a dog attack, you need the help of an attorney who understands the laws that govern liability for such attacks. Certain types of dogs are automatically categorized as vicious and their owners are strictly liable for their dog’s actions. Other dogs may have a history of biting that should have put the owner on notice that his or her animal was dangerous. The owners of such dogs will be strictly liable for any bites as well.
