When Dog Attacks Leave Permanent Scars
Dog attacks can lead to emotional and physical scarring — both of which can last a lifetime. If you or your child needs surgery to mitigate scars that resulted from a dog bite, the attorneys at Nield Law Group, APC, will take action to ensure that you have access to everything that you need.
Under California law, any type of dog bite is a strict liability. This means that the owner of the dog is legally responsible for your injuries, even if he or she is not technically at fault. If you are living with nightmares, scars and disfigurement, you deserve compensation that will help you heal — in every aspect.
Helping You Lessen The Scars
Dog bites are especially scarring to young children. If your child has scars from a dog attack, we want to talk to you.
Personal injury compensation can cover all of your needs, including:
- Cosmetic surgery to reduce or eliminate the scars
- Reconstructive surgery to correct disfigurement
- Psychological counseling to help with trauma and emotional fallout
- Damages for pain and suffering
