Pit bull Attacks – Serious Injuries Lawsuit Lawyer

When dogs attack, pit bulls, Rottweilers or any other large breed, they can cause serious injuries, even death. Most dogs, even large breeds, are lovable pets and are not trained to attack or cause harm, but some can be aggressive. Dog owners have a responsibility to restrain their pets, especially large dogs like pit bulls, and protect others from injury. When a pit bull or other large dog attacks and causes a serious injury, their owner may be liable for injuries.

Any breed of dog can bite, and pit bulls have earned their reputation due to the seriousness of their bite. A small poodle bite versus a pit bull bite is a major difference. One bite may only need a bandage, while the other could require stitches, surgery and rehabilitation. Owners of pit bulls and other large breeds must be aware of this danger and minimize the risk of anyone sustaining a bite from their dog. Prevention includes:

  • Proper training
  • Containment
  • Restraining when in public
  • Warning of dog on premises

The worst dog attacks occur when pit bulls and other large breeds are allowed to roam. With no owner to control them, some dogs may become more aggressive and pose a serious risk to anyone they encounter. Children and elderly persons are at the highest risk for serious injury, including fatal attacks.

What to Do After a Dog Attack

A dog attack is much different than a single dog bite. When a dog attacks, it will often scratch and bite repeatedly, causing extensive injuries if it is a large dog. If you are attacked by a dog, first seek medical attention for your injuries. Dog bites, even minor bites, can cause serious infections. Next, file a police report and obtain any information you can about the dog’s owner and anyone who witnessed the attack. If you have serious injuries, do not attempt to negotiate with the dog owner or their insurance company to receive compensation, contact an experienced personal injury attorney.

If you have severe injuries from a dog attack, pit bull or another breed, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP for a free consultation to discuss your case.
