These injuries are both physically and emotionally taxing for the victims and their families. An injury of this nature can be devastating to a child, but it can also be as traumatic to the parents, siblings, and loved ones.
At Zirkin and Schmerling Law, we understand that a dog bite can cause lasting physical and emotional wounds to all involved. It is of the utmost importance to us to make sure that the child who has been a victim of a dog bite and the family is properly taken care of for life.
Often when a child is attacked there can be significant scarring. This scarring leaves a reminder of one of the worst days that the child will experience throughout their life. It is important to have a qualified plastic surgeon look at and treat the scarring to help ensure proper healing and keep the scarring as minimal as possible. Facial scarring can cause the child to feel future insecurities and can seriously affect their self-confidence.
It is common for parents to blame themselves for their child having experienced such a vicious dog bite. Additionally, parents may often replay the traumatic experience over and over again in their mind while awake and asleep making it very difficult to get over this horrific experience. When this occurs it is extremely important to receive the proper therapy.
