A serious dog bite injury often results in two types of injuries:
- The physical injuries: lacerations and puncture wounds, often requiring stitches and/or plastic surgery — and often resulting in scarring or disfigurement
- The psychosocial injuries: post-traumatic stress syndrome; social ostracism and limitations on future opportunities, especially in careers that require a lot of face time with clients
The owner of a dog may be responsible for costs associated with the dog bite whether or not the dog owner did anything "wrong." Negligent or not, even if the dog owner is a friend or relative of yours, keep in mind that his or her home insurance is likely to pay, so you should not hesitate to seek compensation if you have medical expenses or other costs associated with the animal attack.
