Dog Bite Attacks and Claims

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord  Nov. 14, 2010 6:20p

Whenever a dog is startled, abused, feels threatened, territorial or is scared of a person approaching it, aggressive defense mechanisms in the dog will be unleashed in the form of an often violent attack. Even if a person approaching is no threat to the dog, or if that person does not realize they are passing by it or encroaching on it's territory, it is the perception of the dog that the person is a threat to their life, or well-being and so vicious instincts can cause them to attack and leave extremely damaging dog bite injuries on a person's body. In many cases, dog owners are liable for the injuries their animals have caused and a St. Louis dog bite attorney can help you build an effective case for a claim.

Sadly, the most common victims of dog bite attacks are small children who may feel that they are playing with a dog, only to discover that the dog is vicious, or accidentally scare or hurt the animal resulting in a painful or fatal attack. The costs associated with a dog bite attack can be astronomical. Medical costs, reconstructive surgeries, and lifestyle change expenses can all cause additional burden to the victim and the family or parents of the victim. If a dog has bitten you is it important that you seek immediate medical attention, take photos of the injuries, clothing, accident scene, the dog and any other important evidence that might help your case.
