Dog Bite Injuries and Animal Attacks

While common, a dog bite — or other animal bite — can lead to serious injury and infection. Even if you believe your injury to be minor, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney.

At the Law Offices of Steven H. Dorne, our Rockville dog bite injury lawyers have more than 30 years of experience guiding clients through the process of obtaining monetary compensation. We understand that a severe injury can have long-lasting physical and emotional effects. Whether you need standard medical treatment or procedures as serious as plastic surgery, our firm will aggressively represent you.

Serious Injuries and Lifelong Damage

Depending on the breed of the dog and the severity of the attack, individuals can suffer a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Fractured bones
  • Multiple lacerations
  • Loss of fingers or toes
  • Infection
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma

An animal attack can also lead to psychological trauma that can ultimately lead to a fear of dogs in individuals who previously did not have this fear. Our firm will examine every aspect of your injury and the prognosis for recovery. Based on your injuries and the medical treatment you might need, we'll aggressively pursue the maximum monetary compensation possible in your situation.

Injuries to Children

Due to their playful and inquisitive nature, children are often drawn to animals that an adult would perhaps avoid. Unfortunately, the strength of the animal and the small stature of the child can lead to the dog overpowering the child. These injuries can cause physical and emotional trauma, with scars that can last a lifetime.
