Harmonson Law Firm: El Paso Dog Bite Lawyers That Fight For You
Being attacked by a dog is a frightening experience. Not only are you likely dealing with severe physical injuries, but you are also almost certainly dealing with emotional trauma as well. Dog bite injuries account for thousands of emergency room visits each year, the cost of which can be astronomical. Dog owners have a certain responsibility for the actions of their dogs. When they fail to take reasonable action to prevent dog bites, owners can be held liable for their injuries and the associated medical expenses.
At Harmonson Law Firm, our El Paso dog bite lawyer is experienced in these types of complicated personal injury cases.
Whether you were attacked by a large or small dog, you shouldn’t have to deal with the consequences on your own. Let Harmonson Law Firm fight for you. Call us at (915) 584-8777 to schedule a complimentary case evaluation with us today!
Injuries Caused by Dog Bites
Serious dog bites and even dog attacks where the victim is not bitten can result in severe injuries. Often, victims are knocked down during an attack, resulting in even more extensive injuries.
Common injuries that result from dog bites and/or attacks include but are not limited to:
- Bone fractures
- Nerve damage
- Cuts and abrasions
- Head injuries
- Emotional distress
- Newly developed fear of dogs
Whether you were attacked on someone else’s property, on your own property, in a park, or were simply out for a walk, the consequences are often serious and life-altering. If the owner of the dog failed to reasonably attempt to control or restrain the dog, did not have the dog on a leash in a designated leash-only area, or had prior knowledge of the dog’s violent behavior, they may be liable for your pain and suffering.
What Damages Can Be Sought in Dog Bite Cases?
If you were bitten by a dog as a result of the dog owner’s negligence, our El Paso dog bite attorney can help you fight for the fair recovery you are owed. Financial compensation cannot fully eliminate your physical pain and emotional suffering, but it can help ease the burden of unexpected expenses that come with sudden, serious injuries.
Damages in dog bite cases can be sought for:
- Hospitalization and/or ambulance fees
- Loss of wages or income
- Loss of present/future earning capacity
- Medical emergency room costs
- Expenses for medical treatment
- Ongoing physical rehabilitation therapy
- Psychological and emotional trauma treatment
- Plastic surgery after disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
Damages can also be sought to assist with funeral and/or burial costs should a dog bite incident result in wrongful death.
