Not every dog bite incident plays out in the same way. No two of them have exactly the same timeline. For that reason, those that have been victimized by such incidents tend to have specific concerns.
Possible complications that the victim of a dog’s violent behavior must deal with
Post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD): This is an emotional and psychiatric response to the memories created by the dog’s attack. It qualifies as pain and suffering. A good lawyer should know how to help a client get compensated for development of PTSD.
Lack of information about a dog’s vaccination history: In the absence of information on that specific history, no victim can know how severely he or she might have been affected, as the recipient of a canine’s teeth marks. If the same canine was not fully vaccinated, the bite could have exposed the victim to dangerous bacteria or viruses. A good lawyer should understand how to search for details on the vaccination status of the pet animal that chose to bite into the client/victim.
The need for the client/victim to identify the dog that attacked and bit into the same client/victim. Personal Injury Lawyer in Cambridge must learn how to go about identifying an owner’s pet. That often entails studying the available information on the same pet’s features.
A potential client’s hesitancy, with respect to bringing charges against the pet’s owner: That owner could be a friend or neighbor. In the case of a stray dog, the victim might not know anything about the owner. Sometimes pregnant female canines run to a special spot, when giving birth to their puppies.
Those canine mothers then protect that same spot. In other words, any one of them could lunge at somewhat that might be walking by. Dog bite lawyers must be ready to deal with such situations, and the extent to which the victim might get harmed, as a result of the attack.
Significance of dog’s features
Facts regarding those features could help with identifying a canine that has bitten into other innocent victims. According to the law, the owners of such canines have a greater responsibility than the owners of some quiet and well-trained pet.
A good attorney should work with a client, in order to acquire information on specific features, such as these:
• The approximate height
• The approximate weight
• The color of the pet’s fur coat
• The texture of that same coat: Was it smooth or curly?
• Did the attacker/dog have any special markings? Did it have a white, brown or black spot on some part of its body?
• Did the attacker/dog have pointed or floppy ears?
• Did it have a long or a short tail?
• Did it have a thick or a thin tail?
