According to recent statistics by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), children are more likely than adults to sustain serious injuries from a dog. In particular, children between the ages of 5 and 9 are more likely to sustain injuries that require medical treatment. If your child is injured or bitten by a dog, it is important to know that the Colorado law is on your side.
A dog bite is often a traumatic and scary event—–especially for young children. A child’s small stature makes him especially vulnerable to head, neck and facial injuries including severe facial fractures, permanent scarring, nerve damage and life threatening head injuries. A large dog can easily break a child’s bones and their powerful jaws are capable of causing serious puncture wounds to the face, neck and head.
In addition to the physical trauma a young child may experience, a dog bite can cause severe emotional trauma in young children. Children who are attacked by a dog, may exhibit signs of depression, anxiety and even regression. They may begin acting out aggressively in school, or they may seem withdrawn and clingy. In addition, children may experience signs of post traumatic stress disorder and may suffer an unnatural fear of dogs their entire lives.
When a child is injured, parents may experience emotions ranging from guilt and regret to anger and depression. If their child’s injuries are severe and life threatening, they may also be dealing with extreme worry and sadness. During this time, finding a dog bite attorney may be the last thing on your mind. But it is during this time when a dog bite attorney can be the most valuable. Your attorney will be able to review all of your legal options with you to ensure that your child receives the medical treatments he/she needs so you can continue to focus on your child’s recovery.
Your Denver Injury Case is our Cause
We personally work with you throughout the duration of your case in pursuit of the compensation you need and deserve. Damages in personal injury cases include economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. In many cases, we have successfully obtained economic damages for the tangible money lost due to an accident including medical bills of all types, co-pays, deductibles, mileage, lost wages, loss of earnings and the reduced value of your car or other property. We also have been successful in obtaining non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, scarring, disfigurement, loss of quality of life and loss of consortium. Finally, in some cases we are able to obtain punitive damages that punish the defendant – often a company – for the behavior that caused the injury or damage.
