Animal Attacks Can Result In Painful Injuries
A dog or animal attack can be a painful and traumatic experience. Bite wounds can be severe, and in some cases, they result in permanent disfigurement. When you know the owner of the responsible animal, these cases become especially complex, as you may wish to preserve that relationship while also seeking compensation.
We understand how delicate these cases can be. The Carey Firm works with Grand Island clients as they look to obtain compensation for a serious animal attack. Attorney Shawn Carey can offer you experienced guidance as you determine the best possible legal pathway for you and your family.
You May Be Facing Permanent Injuries
When an animal attacks out of fear, their ferocity is often considerable. Victims of animal bites can be left with numerous severe injuries, including:
- Facial scarring and permanent disfigurement
- Fractured bones
- Damaged nerves and tendons
- Deep cuts and lacerations
Children are common victims of dog bites and animal attacks. When they experience such a serious trauma, the psychological effects can be lasting. The Carey Firm can help you recover damages for your pain and suffering, as well as any ensuing medical expenses.
Who Is Liable?
New York state law dictates that pet owners can be found liable for an animal attack. By filing a premises liability claim, you can hold negligent parties accountable. When an attack occurs, it is crucial that you seek immediate medical attention and document the contact information for any witnesses to the event.
