Child Dog Bite Injuries

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year. Of these, about 368,000 victims require emergency medical treatment. The majority of patients who are hurt by dog bites are children under age 5 and elderly individuals over 65 years of age.

A dog bite is not only painful but it can also cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in medical treatment and related costs. If your child has been bitten by a dog, contact the Denver dog bite injury lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 to discuss your legal options.

Types of Injuries

Aggressive and unleashed dogs are a significant safety concern, especially for small children. A dog is more likely to attack a child because of their small size and because they are likely to run or show fear when a dog approaches them. Some common types of injuries caused by a dog bite include:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement

While it is less common, dog bites can be fatal. At the very least, the attack can leave significant scarring and disfigurement that affects a victim for the rest of his or her life. If your child has been hurt by a dog bite, our Denver dog attack attorneys can help you fight for the compensation that you and your child need to focus on recovery.
