Seek Reimbursement for Costly Injuries from a Dog Bite
When a dog bites a human being, the injuries it creates can cause physical and emotional trauma for the victims. Dog attacks and bites can lead to extensive and costly medical and psychological treatment. They can also leave a growing stack of medical bills and other financial damage in their wake.
- The Mayo Clinic reports that dog bites can lead to facial scarring, lengthy wound care, and expensive plastic surgery.
- The Mayo Clinic further states that dog bites can cause puncture wounds that require pain medication, infection prevention, and rabies prevention.
Recovering from a dog bite can also mean physical rehabilitation, psychotherapy and other medical treatment, the cost of which can add up quickly. You should not have to compromise or forgo necessary treatment because of financial concerns. Also, the cost of these treatments should not leave you in a precarious financial situation. A Queens dog bite lawyer can help you pursue the financial compensation that will fully cover the cost of your medical treatment and expenses from the time of the attack, until you are fully healed.
