New York And Long Island Dog Bite Attorneys
Each year, approximately 800,000 people in the U.S. are injured by a dog bite and require some form of medical attention. Unfortunately, a large number of these victims are children, and sometimes the attack results in death. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite injury, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. The dog bite attorneys at Constantinidis & Associates, P.C., are here to make sure your rights are protected and you get the justice you deserve.
The emotional scarring left behind after an animal attack can be severe, especially in children. While some adults may find themselves able to move on from the event, other victims, adults and children alike, may be forever terrified of dogs and have repeated flashbacks to their attack. This type of mental and emotional distress is difficult to overcome and can be debilitating to some people.
Victims of dog bite attacks often sustain serious injury. The most common injuries associated with dog bites are:
Crushed or broken bones
- Infections from rabies and other diseases the dog may carry
- Loss of tissue
- Nerve damage, especially if the bite was to the face
- Emotional scarring
To protect yourself and your family from dog bites, here are some warning signs to avoid. This is extremely important if you have children playing outside. If you notice any of the following danger signs, please remove yourself from the situation immediately:
A dog in its own yard with no supervision. Approximately 78% of dog bite deaths occur in the dog’s own yard. Keep yourself and your children safe by never being in a yard with a dog that does not have his owner present.
Specific breeds of dogs. Pit Bulls, Akitas, Rottweilers, and Chows are the most common breeds that have been reported to be involved in dog bite attacks.
Multiple dogs in one group. Dogs are driven by a pack mentality, so even dogs who are usually docile can exhibit aggressive and violent temperament changes when they are in a pack atmosphere. If you notice multiple dogs traveling without a human present, remove yourself from the situation immediately.
Dogs that are tied, tethered, or chained up. Dogs in these environments are often dangerous. It is important to avoid approaching the animal, even if it seems friendly.
