When a dog is out of control, untrained or there is another situation which leads to a dog attack, the consequences can be extremely deadly. Dog bites are prone to serious infections that can be difficult to resolve, as well as the issues of torn skin, muscle, nerve and other physical damage. There are many who suffer very serious injuries in these animal attacks, and the cost of medical care and ongoing treatments, reconstructive surgeries and other costs can be very high. The owner of the dog must be held accountable for any costs incurred by the victim, as well as addressing the emotional toll that the attack invariably takes, particularly on the most vulnerable – young children.
