A Team That Fights For You

More than 4 million Americans are victims of dog bites every year. Of those, an estimated 20 percent of victims will require medical attention for their injuries. Dog bite victims have legal options available, and skilled dog bite lawyer can protect your rights.

If you need legal assistance for a dog bite, a dog bite attorney at The Carlson Law Firm knows which measures to take when dealing with negligent dog owners. We are ready to put the experience of more than 40 attorneys and over 100 staff members to use, to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

COMMON INJURIES

In 2015, 35 Americans were killed by dogs. Dog bites should never be taken lightly. A serious dog bite — even by a small dog — can result in permanent muscle damage and deep tissue scars that can require major reconstructive surgery. Common injuries include abrasions, lacerations, punctures, crush injuries and fractured bones.

INFECTIONS

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the primary complication arising from dog bite injuries is an infection, which occurs in one of five dog bite cases. Common infections include Rabies, Capnocytophaga, Pasteurella, MRSA, and Tetanus.

PSYCHOLOGICAL INJURIES

Physical scars can heal even if the injuries to a body may require stitches or antibiotics, but the emotional scarring from some dog bite injuries may be a little more lasting and come with a difficult recovery process. Common psychological injuries include anxiety, nightmares, insomnia, depression, irritability, and more.
