Dogs are viewed as the best friend of mankind. They protect us, provide companionship, and tend to become just like any other family member. However, there are times when canines may bite, and for a myriad of reasons. When a dog bites or attacks another person, the owner is liable for how that person suffered. Our Essex, MD dog bite lawyer has seen the serious injuries victims can sustain when a dog acts aggressively. If you were recently bitten by an animal, please contact Parker, Pallet, Slezak & Russell, LLC as soon as possible. We can help you pursue compensation from the responsible dog owners for your injuries and damages. 

Reasons Why Dogs Bite

There are so many reasons why a canine may bite. They could have been put into a possessive, fearful, or painful situation that caused them to react aggressively. Dogs can have possessive tendencies, in which they may protect toys, food, territories, or their owners. A dog may seem harmless, up until they feel one of their possessions has been threatened. Dogs can have a fear of the unknown and unfamiliar. They may react towards people they don’t know, the postman, or others who trigger fear. It’s best to not approach a dog you don’t know, even if they seem friendly at the time. Dogs that are not feeling well or are in pain may bite if you interact with them. A dog may have a health issue, like a chronic injury or hip dysplasia. An animal that is in discomfort may resort to biting as a way to alleviate the stress of how they feel. 

Compensation For Injuries

Those who have been injured by a dangerous dog could be owed compensation from the dog owner, since it is their duty to protect the public from their animal’s aggression. If you have medical bills that need to be paid, lost wages from missing work, had belongings damaged, or other losses, then please contact our dedicated dog bite attorney right away. We can help you seek compensation for these losses so that you don’t suffer financially due to the incident. We understand that being involved in a dog attack can be a terrifying experience, and it may have had an impact on your mental health as well. Do be forthcoming and transparent about how the event has affected you physically, emotionally, and mentally.
