What to Do If an Animal Attacks You - Greenville Personal Injury Lawyer

While we like to think of our pets as cute and cuddly, not every animal is a sweetheart. It can be hard to imagine anyone's beloved pet attacking someone, but it happens more often than you may think. Animal attacks are a unique situation to be in due to their nature. You never truly expect to be in a position where an animal attack is a possibility unless you work in that field. If you know someone who has been attacked by an animal, you have an idea of what can happen. If you were attacked yourself, you know how truly terrifying it is.

I can remember when I was a child, my older sister had a paper route. She was riding her bike when someone's three dogs got out of their backyard and started chasing her. They managed to catch up to her and pull her off her bike before their owner came out of the house and got their attention. She limped her bike home and even though I was only four or five years old, I can still see her injuries. She ended up needing reconstructive surgery on her knee and obviously the medical bills were a large, unexpected expense for my parents. It easily could have crippled us had we not worked out a deal with the dog owners.

Animal attacks are truly frightening because there is no reasoning with an animal. You can't talk to an animal the way you can a human and it often is so surprising that you don't have much time to get away. An animal attack can leave you feeling helpless even after the attack is over because there is often an uphill battle both in your medical recovery and in pursuing any sort of compensation for the injuries you sustained.
