About Dog Bite Injuries
The immediate effects of a dog bite injury may include physical and emotional pain, as well as an open wound. After a dog bite breaks the skin, the risk of infection is a serious concern. Emergency medical care will normally involve antibiotics, stitches and psychological care.
Cosmetic surgery may be necessary to mitigate scarring in the short term, and possibly again months or years later. A child who has been bitten may require facial reconstruction surgery later in life.
Psychological counseling may also be necessary. Social stigma associated with a visible injury may be especially difficult, potentially affecting a child’s emotional development. Additionally, an adult whose career progression is impacted by scarring may need rehabilitative guidance as well as compensation to replace lost earning capacity.
I am compassionate and communicative with my clients. At the same time, I am a persistent advocate in settlement negotiations and at trial. I skillfully advise clients whose cases go to mediation or arbitration. I often represent people before insurance claims adjusters, opposing lawyers, judges and juries. In short, I am here to alleviate your burdens during this difficult time, and I will not rest until I have done all I can to help you find justice and relief after a dog bite injury.
