Here are a few examples from Canton area residents who have contacted us:
“I was walking out to my car to go to work and the neighbor’s dogs were loose. They’re both small dogs, but one grabbed the bottom of my pants while the other bit the back of my leg several times. I had to go to the hospital and get stitches. I would like to get some information and advice on what to do.”
“I was standing outside my home with my Yorkie and the neighbor’s pit bull attacked us. It killed my dog and bit me in the hand. It jumped at my face and tore into my chest. I’m sitting here crying in a lot of pain and missing my dog. I feel helpless, what can I do?”
We helped these clients take action. When the dog owner is a neighbor, it can be an uncomfortable situation. Having us handle things helps.
It’s Different When a Child is Involved
Cases involving children require special treatment. There are injuries that can be seen. There are also injuries that cannot be seen. Wounds to a child’s face, arms and legs may result in permanent scarring. Damage to a child’s emotional and psychological well-being may be just as bad. Before the dog attack, your son or daughter loved to play outside. After the dog attack, he or she is afraid to walk out the door.
It’s important to understand how a dog attack can impact a child’s life. Only then will you be able to determine a fair amount of compensation for all your child’s injuries. Your son or daughter may need to live with the effects of a dog attack for their entire life. You need to know how to prepare for that. We will explain how.
