What Is It Like To Be Attacked By a Dog?

I do not believe that the owners of really dangerous dogs have any idea what it feels like to be attacked by one of them. Being surrounded by dogs, trying to fend them off, falling to the ground … and more … is something that these people just don’t think about. 

I have represented people who have been bitten by one dog, more than one dog, a dog they knew, one they were trying to rescue, a dog on a leash, a dog that the owner said was okay to pet, a dog the victim was trying to feed or groom …

I have photographs that you would never, ever forget. A face that needed labels for the pieces because it was not recognizable as a face. Children who were scalped. Legs with huge chunks missing. The rule in my law office (I represent only dog bite victims) is that we do not look at new photos until the end of the day. 

Were you attacked by a dog? Tell these people your story…
