What To Do When Dog Bite Injuries Occur

It can be a harrowing experience to be attacked by a dog, especially if you are alone or are fearful of dogs with no help available. One of our clients found herself in this position while walking her own dog: She was approached and menaced by a dog known in the community to be aggressive, as it had attacked people and other dogs in the neighborhood on previous occasions.

While our client tried to get away, she became tangled in her own dog’s leash and fell, fracturing her hip. The defendants denied that the dog had vicious propensities, and the matter proceeded through discovery. As a result of the fractured hip, the client had an open reduction with internal fixation of the hip, but eventually needed a total hip replacement.

In handling cases such as this, a thorough investigation must be done of the propensities of the dog. Witnesses and neighbors need to be spoken to, which may include the mailmen and even the local legislator. Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, has extensive experience handling dog attack cases.
