9-Year-Old Girl Attacked by Numerous Dogs

Dogs are part of the American family. Most of us have neighbors or friends who consider themselves dog lovers, and you may even have a few dogs as pets yourself. But as lovable as “man’s best friend” can be, when a dog attacks, the outcome is anything but friendly. In just a few short moments, an aggressive dog can cause devastating injuries. They’ve even been known to kill human beings. Children, the elderly, and the disabled are at especially high risk.

A November 2018 The Daily Jeff reports that a 9-year-old girl suffered numerous dog bites all over her bodythe girl was visiting the home of her best friend’s grandmother when she was attacked by numerous dogs.

The consequences of an animal attack are both tragic and costly. Victims frequently face expensive medical bills, time away from work, and might even require counseling for the psychological trauma that a life-threatening encounter with a vicious dog inflicts.

As a general rule, dog owners are legally liable for any damages that their animals cause. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed by an aggressive dog in Georgia, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.

Another Pitbull Attack Occured

An October 2018 HIGHRIVER reports what the mother of pit bull attack victim said, “It was during recess and my daughter was playing on the Joe Clark field and saw a lady walking her dog along the public path near the edge of the school field. She got off the swings to take a closer look and asked the owner if it was a pit-bull. The lady said ‘yes’ and ‘would you like to pet the dog?’. So she did. She went up to the dog because she was invited to do so. The next thing she knew the dog had thrown her to the ground, gotten on top of her and was biting her face before the walker managed to pull the dog off.”

They’ve even been known to kill human beings. Children, the elderly, and the disabled are at especially high risk. 

An October 2018 WLWT reports “An 11-year-old boy was seriously injured in Price Hill after he was attacked on Oct. 9 by a large dog police described as a red pit bull mix”. The dog dragged the boy across the street by holding the boy’s leg. The media also mentioned that “The dog owners have been cited but the fate of the dog has not been determined”.

Dog Attacks 4-year-old Boy

Dogs are part of the American family. Most of us have neighbors or friends who consider themselves dog lovers, and you may even have a few dogs as pets yourself. But as lovable as “man’s best friend” can be, when a dog attacks, the outcome is anything but friendly. In just a few short moments, an aggressive dog can cause devastating injuries. They’ve even been known to kill human beings. Children, the elderly, and the disabled are at especially high risk, but able-bodied adults are not immune for harm, especially where large dogs are concerned.

An October 2018 WCPO reports “a relative’s dog had seized Kurtis (a 4-year-old boy) by the head, sinking its teeth through one baby-round cheek and into his left eye. The force of the bite knocked two teeth out of the boy’s mouth”. The boy’s mother told the media, “he still needs at least $10,000 in reconstructive surgery for his eye and punctured lip… It’s an overwhelming expense”.

The consequence of an animal attack are both tragic and costly. Victims frequently face expensive medical bills, time away from work, and might even require counseling for the psychological trauma that a life-threatening encounter with a vicious dog inflicts.

As a general rule, dog owners are legally liable for any damages that their animals cause. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed by an aggressive dog in Georgia, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
