If you are the victim of an animal attack, you could be burdened by more than just physical injury. Sometimes the consequences of an animal attack are financially detrimental as well, since many animal attacks require emergency medical treatment and rehabilitation. However, because pet owners are responsible for the behavior of their pets, you may be able to sue for financial compensation if someone else’s pet attacks you and causes you injury or cost.

What Costs so Much?
The costs that arise because of animal attacks can be widely varied, particularly regarding the severity of the injury that was inflicted. Typically, with dog attacks for example, a victim will sustain injuries that are significant enough to require advanced medical treatment. The costs of this treatment can be high, and may involve:
- Emergency treatment
- Use of medical equipment
- Subsequent medical treatments
- Dependency on prescriptions
- Physical therapy
- Emotional therapy
These costs can quickly add up, and if you cannot afford to pay for them yourself, you might be left unable to fully recover from your injuries. Fortunately, there are people who stand ready to defend your rights and get you the financial support you need.
