Dog and Other Animal Bites
If you have been bitten by a dog or other animal, seek medical attention immediately. While a bite may seem to be no big deal, there could be unforeseen health consequences that could develop fast such as rabies, a blood infection, tetanus or even meningitis to name a few. Dog bites can lead to other serious injuries such as permeant scaring, fractures (from falling), and emotional trauma, leading to long term psychological issues (such as individuals being afraid of dogs). Even if a dog owner has behaved in a lawful manner and did everything to protect the general public from his dog, he may still be liable for the actions of his dog. Assuming you have done nothing to provoke the animal, and were bitten, you may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, as well as other damages as a result of the attack such as loss of income.
