Dogs Strike Close to Home
Your neighborhood in the Columbus area may be the last place you expected a dog attack to occur. However, most dog bites happen close to a victim’s home. It’s likely the dog that attacked is one you know or have seen before—the dog of a neighbor, the dog of a friend, or the dog of a family member.
Here are some examples from Columbus area residents who have contacted us:
“My daughter was bitten by her boyfriend’s dog. The wounds required stitches on her cheek, chin, neck, and inside her mouth. I need to speak to someone and get professional advice.”
“My 3-year-old son was bit today by a Jack Russell. He had to go to the hospital and needed stitches. Now he’s scared of our dogs at home. He screams every time the dogs walk by him. Please help!”
When the dog that attacked is one you know, you may be reluctant to take action for fear of creating uneasy tension with a neighbor, a friend, or a family member. We are sensitive to this. Having us handle your dog bite case will help.
When a Dog Attacks Your Son or Daughter
Seeing your son or daughter severely hurt is a parent’s worse fear. When a dog attacks a child, the case needs to be handled carefully. Children frequently receive injuries to their face, arms, and legs. These are the visible injuries. There may also be injuries that are not easy to identify.
