What you need to know about Animal Attacks

Being attacked by a dog or other animal is very frightening. An attack can leave a victim severely traumatized and injured. When a child is the victim, the injuries can be fatal. These injuries can include disfigurement, torn ligaments, scarring and even death. In cases involving children, in addition to the physical injuries, there are frequently severe and substantial emotional injuries from the trauma of the event.
