Animal attacks are terrifying and can have life-changing consequences, especially when you consider that a large number of dog bite and animal attack victims are children. Being assaulted by a dog can result in physical pain and suffering, psychological trauma and disfiguring scars.
The emotional pain of scarring and disfigurement can be more traumatic than the physical injuries themselves. These injuries may require reconstructive surgery with extensive treatment time lines. Sadly, in the case of children cosmetic surgery may have to be put off until the child finishes growing forcing them to grow up scarred and disfigured during their most emotionally vulnerable years.
Even for adults such scarring and disfigurement may cause very real psychological damage, often affecting relationships and self-image.

Holding those responsible to account.
In Minnesota, pet owners are legally responsible for the behavior of their dogs. In most dog-bite cases, a dog’s owner will be required to provide compensation to you for:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills resulting from the attack
- Lost wages resulting from your injuries and medical care
If you were knocked down or fell and were injured as the result of a pet’s actions and were not even bitten, the pet owner may be held responsible for your injuries.
