Each year, millions fall victim to serious animal injury and suffer wrongful death.
PW Lawyers understands the pain and suffering that can loom over a dog bite injury victim and their family. We are here to help you through the entire process of what to do after enduring an animal attack.
It is pivotal that you seek medical attention immediately after an animal attack; keep all medical records and transportation documentation . Many animals, especially if stray, carry disease or bacteria which can lead to human infection. Emergency treatment must be sought immediately after an animal induced injury. Transportation to a medical facility is necessary.
Negligent and abusive animal owners can often be held responsible for the injury and damages sustained by a victim of a dog bite or animal attack. Careless owners can lose control of their pets easily, which can lead to dangerous interactions between their animal and the public.
PW Lawyers will work hard to get full compensation for any long term-disability, rehabilitation, or surgery needed as a result of complications from injuries such as :
- Facial scarring and disfigurement

- Eye injuries
- Infection (ex. Rabies)
- Amputations (ex. Finger, ear, nose)
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Severe strains
- Psychological stress and trauma (ex. Development of PTSD and phobias)
It is important to note that Children are the most frequent victims of animal and dog attacks.
Certain precautions should be taken to promote child safety around animals. It is important that you educate your child to always ask permission from a dog's owner before approaching the animal to touch/pet them. It is wise to teach your child to put their hand out to let the animal sniff them first, and to not be startled by any sudden movements.
