Animal bites can bring litigation from victim

When you are bitten by a dog it can be a serious injury and takes weeks to heal. You incur medical bills and may even have to miss work to get well. This type of animal bite is usually because someone in your neighborhood isn't paying attention to his or her dog. Breeds that are common for biting, such as a Doberman, Rottweiler, German Shepard and pit bull, are the culprits most of the time.

Dog bites are painful and deserve compensation

Getting bitten by a dog is quite painful. The bite can get infected and you may be facing weeks of medication because the dog wasn't vaccinated. Any dog can bite; even the friendliest dogs will bite if they feel like they are being threatened. This doesn't mean you are causing the problem, it is just that the dogs may have a feeling of being trapped, so they lash out. Dog bites can be devastating and can come on so suddenly that you have no time to react or shield yourself from the vicious attack.

Why do animal bites get infected?

One of the biggest dangers associated with an animal bite isn't the bite itself, but the infection that happens afterwards. Many animal bites are not remotely life-threatening in the immediate aftermath. While they may bleed, it can often be stopped with bandages. Infections, though, have been known to cause serious complications and even take lives.

Pit Bull Dog Attacks Female Cocker Spaniel

My friend's cocker spaniel was attacked by a pit bull dog last week. Lila Grace (the dog) and Chris (the owner) were visiting their friend in her apartment. The owner of the pit bull thought that her dog was locked in a bedroom. She was mistaken. Soon after Chris and the Lila Grace entered the apartment, the pit bull saw the friendly cocker spaniel and immediately attacked. The pit bull bit Lila Grace on the left side of her throat; Pit bulls instinctively go for the jugular to subdue their victims.
