A client in Dallas talking about her dog bite case with her lawyer.

It is sad but some people in our society do not treat their dogs the way that dogs deserve to be treated. This neglect and mistreatment can lead to dogs becoming a real threat to other members of the public when they escape their enclosure or pass by someone. It is safe to say, that everyone has experienced slight unease when passing by a dog who they think may be dangerous. If you have been bit by a dog, what should you do? Speak with the proven Dallas dog bite attorney of Hartley Law Firm now.

The most common cause of dog bites is plain old fashion negligence on the part of the dog’s owner. Either the owner does not know that the dog is dangerous, or worse knows that the dog is dangerous but does not care for one reason or another. Dog bites can range from punctures and bruising resulting in scarring to savage attacks resulting in serious deformity or even death.

The most important thing after a dog bite is to record the event. You should contact the police or animal control and obtain a report. If you are seriously injured, you should call 911 for emergency assistance, which will create a record of the event as well. One of the most difficult problems encountered by victims of dog bites is the lack of cooperation by the owner of the dog in part because the owner knows that the dog may be euthanized as a result of the attack. If you are the victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to past and future medical bills, disfigurement, pain, suffering, and mental anguish, and lost wages among other items. You need the assistance of a Dallas dog bite lawyer.
