Parents often encourage children to interact with friendly dogs or neighborhood pets to overcome their fear of large animals. It is devastating when one of these animals — or any other dog — turns violent and attacks a child. A child dog bite injury can be physically and emotionally traumatic for the child and can even lead to permanent damage.
As a parent dealing with the consequences of a child being attacked by a dog or other animal, you have many questions: What long-term effects will your child suffer? How will you manage significant medical expenses? Who is responsible for your childs dog bite injuries?

Physical dog bite injuries may require extensive medical treatment, particularly when the injuries are to a child. Injuries may require reconstructive surgery or other extensive treatment. However, even when a child recovers from the physical injuries of a dog attack, emotional damage lingers.
