Animal Attack & PTSD | New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers

Animal Attack PTSD

People who ignore the fact that some dogs can be dangerous, are thoughtlessly putting others in serious danger. Often times, dogs who brutally attack humans have attacked or appeared threatening before. The dog’s owners have possibly ignored the signs of aggression, and failed to take precautionary measures in order to protect innocent people who may happen to be in the dog’s vicinity.

A dog attack can happen in an instant, and are by their nature, quite traumatic. There are bites, gashes, and dogs often attack on the face. There can be scarring, and the need for multiple surgeries to reconstruct a person’s face. Most of the victims are children, who are unable to protect themselves, and who are unaware of the dangers of getting close to an aggressive dog.

People who have been attacked by dogs often face post-traumatic stress syndrome or PTSD. This means that they relive an event, or are triggered emotionally, when they cross paths with dogs, or when other stimulation reminds them of the animal attack. This PTSD can affect the entirety of their lives. For instance, they may have a strong reaction if they see a dog on television, or if they hear a dog bark they might go into a panic.

When you have suffered an animal attack, you have a right to sue for compensation that will pay for your full and fair recovery, including treatment for trauma and PTSD.
