Dog bite injuries are often horrific to look at — and difficult to treat. Doctors must watch closely for signs of infection in the early stages of recovery. They must take steps to minimize scarring, if possible. Often, plastic surgeons tell parents of children disfigured by animal attacks that their children will need reconstructive surgery when they reach a certain age. In the meantime, these children must live with the social disadvantages that severe scarring often brings with it.
At Delgado & Romanik in Daytona Beach, we are available to evaluate your or your child's dog bite case. We can offer advice on how to pursue the compensation you need to cover:
Certain breeds of dogs have acquired a reputation for biting and attacking humans more often than other breeds. Namely, pit bulls, rottweilers and bulldogs are all notorious for their sometimes ferocious characters. Some homeowners' insurance providers specifically do not cover harm caused by particular breeds.
On the other hand, many other breeds of dogs have attacked and injured people, including poodles, cocker spaniels and Labrador retrievers. Regardless of the dog breed that bit you or your child and regardless of what you think insurance has to offer, consult with an experienced lawyer. Your dog bite case many have unique aspects that will open doors to other sources of compensation, including premises liability lawsuits.
