Domestic Pet, Dog Bites And Animal Attacks

Animal injuries create much more than short-term physical pain. Victims may suffer permanent disfigurement and scars, be plagued with disease and may experience increased anxiety around pets or other animals.

Many people categorize animal attacks as dog bites. However, there are numerous other animals that are capable of causing serious harm when pet or property owners do not take adequate responsibility to ensure safety on the premises. Pet cats, birds, ferrets, snakes, squirrels and other animals can inflict injuries, including: .

Common Animal Attack Injuries

  • Puncture wounds
  • Disfigurement
  • Rabies
  • Disease
  • Bruising
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Infection
  • Mental and emotional trauma

Animal and pet owners need to be held responsible for the animals in their care. Animal owners are expected to know the dangerous tendencies of their pets. If an animal owner fails to take appropriate precautions in preventing an animal attack, he or she can be found negligent and held accountable for a victim's injuries or losses. Affordable safety preventative measures consist of fencing, restraints, supervision, animal training and more.

Legal Rights After A Dog Bite Or Animal Attack

After an animal-inflicted injury, you carry the burden of new medical bills, rehab, lost wages, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. To win your claim and receive compensation for damages, you must prove the animal's owner was careless or negligent in the care and supervision of their animal.

As an example, if you are attacked and bitten by a dog while walking on a sidewalk because the owner failed to fence and restrain the pet properly, you could bring suit against them. You could build a case by demonstrating the pet owner knowingly failed to protect the public from their pet.
