Were You Bitten by a Dog in Johnson County?
Speak to Our Olathe Dog Bite Attorney
Animal attacks of any kind are terrifying to experience, but they are much
harder to handle when you know that the animal should have been restrained
by an owner. In almost all cases, dog bites could have been prevented
if the owner had not been negligent in properly handling, raising, or
training the animal, which is why they should be found liable for any
personal injury resulting from an attack.
If you have been hurt due to an uncontrolled animal, call the offices of

Damages Caused by Dog Bites
Dog bites have been known to cause serious medical conditions. When a bite
is deep or difficult to clean, or if the animal is carrying a disease
or harmful bacteria, infections are a real possibility. A common example
is staph infection, which results from bacteria that is found on the skin
of the victim entering the wound and the blood stream.
Pasteurellosis is possible as well and is a fast-moving infection, though it is more
common in cat bites. As for rabies, which is the disease that most people
associate with dog bites, it is not very common unless the dog is feral
and shows signs of having already been infected.
Regardless of the extent of your injuries, our Johnson County personal
injury lawyers may be able to win you recoveries that include monies for:
