Children injured by dog bites often entitled to compensation

Despite the loving and trusting nature that children tend to have, they appear to be especially susceptible to animal attacks. Dog bites can have a devastating impact on a child and can place undue stress on them and their family. When a child in Georgia suffers an injury from an animal due to owner negligence, compensation may be a crucial part of recovery.

Because of a child's small size, a dog can easily cause permanent damage, including disfigurement. Many victims require plastic or reconstructive surgery for bites to the face, and even with these procedures, puncture wounds or surgical scars can leave evidence of the attack for a lifetime. Depending on where a victim was bit, nerve damage and loss of sight serious possible injuries. 

Physical injuries are not the only injuries that small children tend to suffer following an animal attack. For kids, an attack by an animal or dog can create an unnecessary burden on them by instigating a lifelong fear of animals. Follow up for a child's mental health, in addition to his or her physical well-being, is often necessary.

Certainly, no parent in Georgia wants his or her child to suffer, and it can be exceedingly difficult when the negligence of an animal owner leads to a serious injury. We strongly believe that pet owners who have attacked children should be held responsible for the damages that victims suffer. Because of this, we have dedicated ourselves to guiding our clients through the process of seeking compensation for children who have been bit and seriously injured by a dog.
