Dog Bite Accident: Head Injury or Brain Injury

Head and Brain Injuries are a Common Result of Dog Attacks

Since the inception of our firm back in 1994 we have been representing victims of head and brain injuries caused by dog and animal attacks. Due to the violent nature of dog attacks, serious injuries like head and brain trauma are common. If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury due to the negligence of another, you may well have a strong claim to compensation.

Common Types of Head Injuries Resulting from Dog Attacks

An injury to the head is categorized as either closed or open. Closed head injuries mean that a blow to the head was experienced but it did not cause the skull to break. When an object hits the skull, breaking it and penetrating the brain, that is an open head injury. Types of head injuries include:

A common brain injury in which the brain is shaken

A bruise on the brain

Bleeding in the brain

Localized collection of blood that can compress brain tissue and generally the result of a hemorrhage

Do You Have a Strong Case?

Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy blueprint to use to determine whether or not you have a strong case. However, the answers to these questions can help us begin to determine if you may be able to receive compensation for your injury:

Liability: Who is to blame for the accident? Is liability clear cut or are there other circumstances that could make proving liability difficult?

Coverage: Does the responsible party have insurance? If so, what type of policy do they have? How much money is out there to be pursued?

Damages: What damages were inflicted as the result of the accident? The idea here is simple; in cases where damages are great, the potential amount to be recovered is great as well.
