Don’t Be Afraid to Sue After a Dog Bite Injury

by | December 27th, 2021

70% of American households own at least one pet, and more than 50% of American households owns a dog. The sheer number of dogs in America, combined with the fact that many people consider them to be members of their family, means that dogs are widely accepted in society, including many public places.

When dogs bite, it can be shocking for victims and owners. And even though dog bites can be extremely painful, disabling, and even life-threatening, many bite victims are reluctant to pursue compensation. Dog bite victims often fear that something bad will happen to the dogs that bit them, or they believe that they must have done something wrong to cause the bite to occur.

But neglecting to file an injury claim after a dog bite is a big mistake. It’s not uncommon for dog bite victims to need medical treatment, including hospitalization and even surgery. That’s because dogs have long, sharp teeth, and their bites can cause severe bleeding, nerve damage, and infection. The medical bills for a single dog bite can overwhelm many health insurance plans and deplete savings.

Dog bites can also cause victims to become disabled. Persistent pain, numbness, and nerve damage can make it difficult for them to do their jobs. And when they aren’t working, they aren’t earning the paychecks they and their loved ones depend on.

If you or someone you love was bitten by a dog, you need to speak to an experienced Virginia dog bite lawyer. Note that most dog bite claims are paid through insurance, not the dog owners’ pockets. Contact Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers today for a free consultation.

Don’t Miss Out on Compensation After a Dog Bite Injury

by | August 2nd, 2021

Dogs are important members of millions of families in America. But even though most dogs are kind and gentle animals, all dogs have the potential to bite and seriously injure people—even if they have no history of aggression. And all breeds, regardless of their size, can cause serious and complication-ridden injuries when they bite.

For example, it’s common for dog bite victims to experience a host of secondary problems afterward, including profuse bleeding, nerve damage, and infection. Some dog bite victims may even lose partial or complete feeling and control of affected body parts, including hands and fingers. These complications can severely disrupt victims’ quality of life and ability to work and earn a living.

Despite those severe consequences of being bitten, many dog bite victims never seek compensation. That means they’re on the hook for their own medical bills, all while trying to keep their heads above water when they’re unable to work. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we believe this is unacceptable.

Dog owners are required by city and local ordinances to keep their pets enclosed or leashed, and when they fail to do so and their dogs bite people, they can and should be held liable.
