There’s a reason why a dog is called a man’s best friend. Our pets are our constant companions and they love us unconditionally.
It is that constant friendship that catches most people off guard when they are involved in a dog attack. We envision that all dogs are as friendly as our beloved family pets, but unfortunately, that is not the case.
Dog attacks happen more often than you would expect. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, dog bites occur every 75 seconds in the United States. And when they do happen, they leave families absolutely devastated. If you yourself were attacked or you know someone who was, you truly understand the traumatic effects of this type of attack. When aggressive dogs attack people, they leave them with injuries, some lasting them a lifetime. Some scars heal eventually, but the memories of the trauma will never go away. Unfortunately, sometimes dog attacks are even fatal. Children and the elderly are frequently victims of these fatal dog attacks.
The recovery will not be instant after your or your loved one’s attack. It will take time, support, and money to truly overcome this. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, our attorneys speak with families just like you about their traumatic dog bite experiences. They’re emotionally and physically scarred from the experience, but they want to overcome it. They want to heal. Part of that healing comes with a price, though. If you were attacked, you have probably taken time off work. You’ve used your vacation days and exhausted your emergency savings account. The surgeries and therapy sessions involved aren’t inexpensive by any means, but you’ll do anything to fully recover.
It is for that reason, along with others, that we at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya encourage you to work with our attorneys after your dog bite attack. Your recovery comes first and we want to help your family heal in any way we can.
Attacks by vicious animals can result in severe injuries, pain and suffering, and disfiguring scars. It’s particularly hard on children, who can suffer embarrassment and emotional distress. They may develop a fear of animals in general and be afraid to go for walks or ride their bikes, worried they could be bitten again. People suffering from animal bites may need treatment not only from doctors, but from counselors and other experts. We will find you the doctor, therapist, or plastic surgeon you need. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we can help you or your child get treatment for your physical injuries. And we can help you get on the road to recovery from the traumatic emotional issues caused by the attack.
We will provide personalized attention to you and your family. This is an emotional, traumatic experience, and our Denver dog bite attorneys want to be there with you each and every step of the way. If you or your family member has fallen victim to a dog bite attack, be sure to contact our compassionate, aggressive personal injury attorneys. We’re devoted to your recovery. Let us help you move forward from this trauma. Call our Denver office and ask for Dianne!
