A dog attack can turn your life upside down and leave you struggling with serious injuries and a lot of bills. It is only reasonable to ask the animal’s owner to pay for your losses.

My name is attorney Justin Hollimon, an award-winning lawyer in Towson, Maryland, dedicated to bringing you the most favorable outcome for your claim.

Possible Injuries Due To Dog Bites

Injuries suffered from dog bites will depend on various factors, such as the dog’s breed and the circumstances of the attack. Of course, larger or mid-sized dog breeds have more jaw strength, making them capable of inflicting more damage than small dogs, but small dogs can still do plenty of harm. You may suffer:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Torn skin
  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Infections
  • Permanent scarring

The injuries can be on any part of your body, like your fingers, hands, legs, face or feet. The injuries may need hospitalization for stitching and could cause permanent scarring, disfigurement or disability.

Common Situations That Lead To Dog Attacks

Dogs can be a threat under various circumstances, potentially causing serious harm. Some of the common scenarios where a dog may cause injury include:

  • Off-leash dogs
  • Attacks on walking trials
  • Unattended dogs in public spaces
  • Untrained or poorly socialized pets
  • Attacks in the dog park

The aftermath of a dog bite can be deeply traumatic. A personal injury lawyer can help you better understand your options.
