Understanding Connecticut Child Dog Bite Injury Claims

If your child has been attacked by a dog in Connecticut and has been severely injured you will have a number of very important questions that require immediate answers. What should you be doing? What types of doctors should you be seeing? Who is going to pay your child's medical bills? Who is responsible for all of this? How is liability determined? Did the dog have the bite someone before in order for you to collect money damages? What if your child went on to the property of another where they were bitten by a dog, do you still have a case? Suppose the owner of the dog does not have any insurance can you collect money damages from a third party? Who is going to pay your lost wages because you have to spend time with your injured child? What is going to be done with the dog? Has the dog had its rabies shots? And many other very probing, very difficult and very understandable questions that you need to get answered.

If your loved one has been seriously injured as a result of a Connecticut child dog bite attack then these injuries might require the services of any one or more of the following types of doctors or health care specialists: an emergency room doctor; a trauma specialist; an orthopedic surgeon; a neurologist; a plastic or reconstructive surgeon; an infectious disease specialist; an ophthalmologist; a psychologist or psychiatrist; an occupational therapist; a physical therapist or chiropractor; a rehabilitative care specialist; a hematologist; and any one of a number number of other types of specialists who can assist your child in getting better as quickly as possible. What Dr. should you be seeing? Who is going to be in charge of your child's medical care? What should you be telling each doctor? Who is going to assist you with all of the medical help which your child needs?

There are also a number of steps which you should take immediately after a Connecticut child dog bite attack. The police or local dog warden should be contacted so that the case is properly investigated, the dog is quarantined, photographs are taken, witnesses are interviewed, and a report is generated. If your child has been injured in any way as a result of this dog bite, or if your child's skin has been pierced by the dog, then you should make arrangements to make sure your child gets immediate medical attention which, in most cases, will take place in the local hospital emergency room. It is important that you take these basic steps immediately. You should also then contact an experienced CT dog bite injury lawyer so you can find out what you need to be doing and what you should not be doing.
