Dog bites and other animal attacks often cause painful physical injuries, which can lead to scarring and disfigurement. If the victim is a child, it may take years before scar revision surgery can be performed. Victims of animal attacks may also suffer from psychological and emotional injuries, which can be more severe than the physical ones. You may even be familiar with the offending dog or animal, which can actually worsen psychological injuries and cause subsequent anxiety around animals in general. Although it is unlikely that the owner of the offending animal intended for you to be bitten and injured, you are still entitled by law to be compensated for your injuries. If you or a family member has been injured as a result of an animal attack, you deserve to be compensated for the damage you have suffered.
