Representing Those Injured By Serious Dog Bites
Animal attacks can occur nearly anywhere — from neighborhood streets, to parks, to common areas in apartment complexes. In addition, people are at increased risk for a dog attack in dog parks where large numbers of dogs are off leash, and owners might not be paying vigilant attention to their pets. If you were attacked by a dog in Massachusetts, it is important to speak with a dog bite injury attorney.
At Birenbaum & Goldberg, LLP, we understand that dog bites can result in devastating injuries and dangerous conditions such as:
- Torn flesh
- Puncture wounds
- Bacterial infections
- Rips and scrapes from claws
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
A serious dog bite might require significant medical treatment in the months and years after the attack. Some injuries might leave scars while others might require plastic surgery to repair the damage to the skin and underlying tissue. As your attorneys, we will carefully assess your medical needs and fight to ensure your monetary compensation takes all of these factors into account.
When Children Are The Victims
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for children to be injured by an animal attack. Their playful, inquisitive nature can often put them directly in harm’s way. After an attack, these children will have to deal with physical and emotional scarring for years, decades or even the rest of their lives. If your child was bitten by a dog, it is important to discuss the matter with a skilled premises liability lawyer.
