Dog attacks can cause very serious injuries including permanent scarring and disfigurement, or permanent emotional injuries. Children are particularly vulnerable. Dog owners are sometimes irresponsible in caring for their animals, even keeping dogs that they know to have vicious propensities – in violation of city ordinances or state statutes. Depending on how serious a victim’s injuries are from the attack, it is possible that a dog owner may be found to be strictly liable for the victim’s medical expenses, meaning an owner is automatically responsible for his or her dog’s actions.
