If you have experienced an animal attack, you know firsthand the trauma that comes with it. As attorneys in Washington, we at Cooney Law Offices, P.S., have long known that dog bites can cause tremendous, long-lasting pain and suffering in people of all ages. A recent study has shed further light on the long-term impact of dog bites on children.
When a dog attacks, it can change your life in Washington forever. Canines and the damage they inflict must be assessed for your benefit, and the prevention of future bites. The Association of Professional Dog Trainers provides an official dog bite scale for this purpose.
While the following story isn't from Spokane or anywhere in the state of Washington, it does exemplify many of the issues that surround any dog bite case. Today's story is from Iowa, where a 9-year-old boy was at a park with his father. While skating together, a pit bull suddenly charged the 9-year-old and bit him in his bicep. Thankfully, the bite doesn't appear to be too bad (there is a photo in our source article, so be ready for that) and the 9-year-old is expected to make a full recovery.
