On Behalf of | Feb 8, 2019 | Animal Bites

New Jersey residents just like you interact with dogs on a daily basis. Any dog from the neighborhood’s friendly pup to a stranger’s pooch on a leash could possibly end up being a danger to you, however. Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., are here to help you through the aftermath of a bite attack.

When a person thinks of dog bite injuries, they are usually going to consider matters like immediate or short-term medical attention. This can include highly pricey things like:

  • Rabies vaccinations
  • Ambulance costs
  • Emergency operations
  • Overnight hospital stays
  • Reconstructive surgeries

While these are certainly big and costly issues, they unfortunately aren’t the only expenses you may face. There are many hidden costs involved in the aftermath of dog bite attacks as well.

A person can find themselves suffering from mental and emotional trauma that may require months or even years of therapy to recover from. Physical injuries can also be long-lasting or even permanent depending on how the attack went. For example, someone with severe maiming could face nerve damage and a painful recovery. Some may even lose mobility due to injuries of tendons or muscles.
