Many of our dog bite injury clients have suffered from painful wounds, infection, scarring, disfigurement, numerous surgeries, hospitalization, extensive rehabilitation and psychological trauma.
Any Dog Could Bite
While a dog may be mans best friend, not all dogs can be trusted. Owners are often negligent, either by not properly restraining their animal, or by failing to report its bite or vicious history. Any dog — not just certain breeds — can bite and cause serious physical and emotional scars which can last a lifetime. This is especially true when the victims are small children and young people with many years still ahead of them.
Injuries Are Often Serious
Dog bites often cause serious muscle and tissue damage and scarring. There is also concern about diseases that dogs can pass to humans through blood transfer. If you or your loved one is bitten by a dog, report the incident to authorities and contact San Jose dog bite lawyer John J. Garvey, III. Allow us the opportunity to help you in your recovery of compensation for your injuries, including the following:
- Pit bull attack injuries
- German shepherd bites
- Tissue injuries
- Chronic pain
- Psychological trauma (which may require counseling)
- Muscle damage
- Injuries that require reconstructive surgery
- Nerve damage
Preserve Your Right to Sue for Compensation
It is important to remember to get the name of the owner and the dog's license number, if possible, so that your medical costs and injury can be compensated through a claim. Even if the dog's owner is a friend or family member, remember that insurance policies provide much-needed safety nets in such cases.
