Many people don’t realize that the majority of dog bites don’t involve adult victims.
Instead, the most likely victim of an aggressive dog is a child between the ages of five and nine. Because of their small size, the injuries from a bite or mauling can be serious and require extensive medical intervention, often leaving permanent scarring.
You have rights when your child has been attacked by a dog in New Orleans.
Louisiana law creates a strict liability for dog owners in cases where their animals hurt others. That means that when you’ve sustained financial loss from medical expenses related to a dog bite case, it’s worth exploring your legal options to recover the costs.
At The Gertler Law Firm, we help parents get the compensation they need to care for a child recovering from a dog bite or attack.
