Reviewing other types of animal attacks

Posted by Ken Doane | Dec 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

When people hear about an animal attack, many are likely to assume that the incident involved a vicious dog. While dog bites are indeed a common cause of animal attacks and a major concern, it is important to bear in mind that other types of animals are also responsible for attacking innocent people. For example, someone may be bitten by a pet snake, clawed in the face by someone's cat, or even attacked by an exotic animal that someone owns. If you have been attacked by someone's pet that should have been restrained or are suffering because of a pet owner's negligence, you should not give up or think that you have no options without first reviewing your situation.

These other types of animal attacks can make life very tough for victims. Permanent scars are common, which can be unsightly and also serve as a reminder of an attack that never should have happened. In some cases, people may need to be hospitalized due to an infection or for some other reason related to the attack. Moreover, these incidents can also leave victims with a considerable amount of emotional distress. Some may not be able to enjoy walking down the street or participating in certain activities that they used to love as a direct result of the animal attack.

Our section which covers dog bites and animal injuries offers additional information that may be helpful for people who have been  attacked by an animal which an owner failed to prevent.
