Teen suffers dog bite injuries, has cardiac issue soon after

If the dog is running free and has a propensity to bite, there can be injuries and even death. The owner of the dog is responsible for its behavior and those who were victimized and suffered dog bite injuries should be aware of the necessary steps to file a lawsuit for compensation.

A dog bite led to a teen being injured and then suffering a cardiac issue. The teen, a 17-year-old female, was walking near her apartment complex with a friend. A dog that was untethered approached and attacked her. She was bitten on the foot.

After they departed, the girl began having another medical issue within 30 minutes. She was suffering from an asthma attack which escalated into a cardiac problem. She had cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital. She needed to be revived and was placed in intensive care. Her medical prognosis is unknown. The dog was given back to the owner. The investigation is continuing.

Dog bites can be serious on their own. People can suffer from severe cuts and disfigurement that can result in major medical expenses, disability, psychological damage and the need for long-term care. In some cases, the person can have other medical problems, infections, organ problems and even death, all stemming from a dog bite.

People are frequently unaware as to the law regarding dog bites and how to pursue compensation. It is important to remember that owners are responsible for their dog and if the dog bites, they should be held accountable.

A teen who was walking was bitten by a dog. As if that was not bad enough, she subsequently had an asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest. With the medical expenses and the still-unknown long-term damage she could be facing after this series of incidents. A law firm that has experience in helping people after they have been impacted by dog bite injuries should be consulted with to determine what to do to pursue a lawsuit.
