Children and Dog Bites
Unfortunately, our attorneys see too many children being victims of dog bites or dog attacks. Obviously, kids themselves can’t bring a claim, file a lawsuit or hire an attorney until they turn the age of majority which is 18. Parents actually have a claim. They actually have to hire an attorney and they have a claim for the bills, the economic damages that were sustained as a result of the injury. The reason for that is obviously, parents are responsible for the child’s medical bills until they hit 18, so it’s only right that it’s the parent’s claim. However, the children still have a claim. Their claim is for any economic damages that would be incurred after 18, and also the non-economic damages of their claim, things like the mental toll of this injury, impairment, disfigurement, pain and suffering. If you have any questions about children after they’ve been involved in a dog bit or a dog attack, give the attorneys at Zinda Law Group a phone call.
