Animal bites and dog bites can be very traumatic and can cause serious injuries including permanent scarring and even death in some cases.
Unfortunately, the majority of animal/dog bites involve children. This occurs because children are smaller, they are usually unfamiliar with animals/dogs and are unable to protect themselves. Children often sustain injuries to the face which can result in permanent emotional and physical scarring.
Animal owners may be liable for a victim’s bite injuries if they knew, or had reason to know, of their animal’s dangerous propensities. To establish a strict liability animal bite claim for a personal injury, the injured victim must show that the animal caused a “severe injury,” and acted without provocation.
