Kansas City Animal Attacks Attorney
Were you bitten by someone else's dangerous pet?
While there are many types of animals that attack and harm humans, the
most common aggressor which causes the most injuries in the United States
is the dog. There can be attacks from other animals such as snakes, bobcats,
deer, skunks, raccoons, spiders, sharks and others that can lead to the
wrongful death of a loved one. If any of these were caused because of the negligence of
their owner or caretaker, you have the right to file a claim for compensation
for your injuries.
A recent study reported in Dogsbite.com shows that approximately 1,000
Americans are treated daily in emergency rooms because of
dog bites. Unfortunately, most of these injuries are to children who are normally
bitten around the facial area. Facing the tremendous damage this type
of attack can cause is devastating. Long term medical care may be needed,
including cosmetic surgery to repair the damage.
If you or a loved one is facing this situation it is crucial to have a
caring and dedicated Kansas City personal injury lawyer protecting your
rights. In order to obtain the recovery for damages that you deserve you
will need a strong and effective attorney at your side. Because of the
possible permanent damage that can be caused by these types of
catastrophic injuries, ensuring all future medical care is compensated for is important when
negotiating your claim.
