Children who make sudden moves or elderly people who may walk unsteadily are favorite targets of nervous dogs — especially dogs bred to attack.
- Have you or a loved one received a dog bite? These attacks can cause serious injury. When an animal attacks someone's face, there can be tearing of nerves and blindness. Deep puncture wounds are common and can easily become infected. The law firm of Leonard B. Gabby, P.C. understands the injuries and the trauma of animal attacks.
- Have you sought immediate medical treatment? Even a bite on a hand or foot requires immediate care. The wound needs to be cleaned, irrigated, and examined for possible nerve or muscle damage. Medical care for a dog bite or any animal attack can include emergency care, an ophthalmologist for eye damage, dentistry, and plastic surgery.
- Have you contacted a dog bite attorney? Know your rights. Whether or not the dog has a history of attacking people, the owner is responsible in most situations. Our Austin dog bite attorney can help you file a claim.
- What is the emotional damage? Dog bite victims — especially children — often suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following an animal attack. Be sure to seek the necessary therapy.
