Medical Bills from Dog Bites

Irresponsible pet owners put others at risk of serious injuries such as dog bites. Unfortunately, no matter how sweet or gentle a dog seems, he or she can become vicious in a heartbeat when feeling scared or threatened. When dogs attack, it can lead to damages that require immediate medical attention for the victim. Dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets, and therefore, they can be held legally liable if their dog injures another person and forced to pay the victim’s medical bills.

If you or your loved one was hurt due to a pet owner’s irresponsibility, you have two options: to accept the negligence and pay medical bills out of your own pocket, or fight for your due compensation. The dog bite lawyers at Ravid & Associates, P.C., believe that no dog attack should go unreported. Contact our offices at 877-PET-BITE to learn more about your rights in a free consultation.

The Costs of a Dog Bite

A dog bite can cause infections, broken bones, lacerations, and cosmetic damage, among other injuries. Medical care for these injuries is costly but essential. The following can contribute to high medical bills after a dog attack:

  • Ambulance ride to the hospital
  • Emergency room visit
  • Surgery to repair the damage
  • Plastic surgery to fix any scars or cosmetic damage
  • Physical therapy to help you recover

Other Factors for Compensation

If you choose to file a dog bite lawsuit, compensation for medical bills is only a part of the settlement. The following factors can also affect the amount of compensation you will receive:

  • Loss of wages from time away from work
  • Loss of future work wages due to any disabilities caused by the bite
  • Emotional pain and suffering

If you or your loved one suffered from serious injuries following a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation.
