A dog is a man’s best friend,” or so the saying goes. But there are times when a dog may not be so friendly. Dogs can be vicious. It is the owner’s responsibility to keep them contained and well-behaved in order to prevent an attack or personal injury. When an owner fails to keep their pet under control and it attacks and/or bites an innocent person, compensation should be required. Consult with Abrahams Law today at (248) 538-2900 if you are faced with such a situation.

Danger of Injury, Infection & Illness
Without proper medical treatment, dog bites have been known to cause serious infection and illness. The first thing that usually comes to mind is rabies, but a person can only contract rabies if the dog was already rabid. After being bitten by a dog, it may be wise to keep the animal under surveillance to see whether or not signs of sickness or rabies are evident in the dog. Staph infections are common results of dog bites, as well, as is tetanus.
Get immediate medical care after a dog bite in order to prevent such serious infections. Then contact a skilled dog bite lawyer as soon as possible. Fill out our free case evaluation form and allow us to review the basics of your case as soon as possible.
