Bitten by a Dog?
Western New York Dog Bite Attorneys
Every year, millions of dog bites are reported all over the United States and thousands of victims require medical attention as a result. If you or a loved one were injured in a dog bite incident, you know the pain and fear an attack can cause, as well as the financial and emotional toll it takes on the victim and family. Dog ownership comes with responsibilities and one of the most important is making sure your pet is restrained or otherwise prevented from injuring someone. When an owner does not fulfill that duty and you receive a dog bite, you have the right to demand compensation.

The Dangers of Dog Bites
There are various kinds of wounds that can be inflicted in a dog attack. The most common include:
- Puncture wounds
- Crushed bones/avulsion/amputation
Those are only the physical wounds. There’s also a good chance that a dog bite victim will have a serious emotional reaction. If the victim is a young child, he or she may face a long-term fear of dogs, separation anxiety, and even fear of leaving the house.
