Dog bites and attacks often result in “tearing” wounds that leave severe and permanent scarring. In many cases, a child has reached down to pet or interact with a dog, and a quick snap results in scarring on the face. There are medical strategies to help reduce the appearance of and severity of a scar over time. As experienced injury and dog bite attorneys, it is important to understand not only the costs associated with the initial medical treatment, but also the future treatments and surgeries that may be necessary to reduce or eliminate scarring. We work to ensure that our clients receive a settlement that reflects the short and long term treatments and costs so that there is every opportunity to significantly reduce or eliminate the physical scars of a dog bite.
