Rottweiler Bite Injury Lawyers
From the period between 1982 and 2010, Rottweilers were involved in 457 dog attacks against people that caused bodily harm. This makes Rottweilers second only to pit bulls in the number of attacks against humans. The majority of these attacks- 262- affected child victims. During this same period, 246 Rottweiler attacks resulted in the victim being maimed and 73 attacks caused the death of the victim.
Rottweilers are a large breed that can be fiercely protective of their owners. Unfortunately, this protectiveness can manifest in a dangerous or even deadly bite. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an attack by a Rottweiler, it is important that you understand your legal rights.
The Harsh Results of a Rottweiler Bite
Regardless of the reason behind a Rottweiler attack, dog bite injuries can be very serious- especially to children. This is especially true when the dog that attacks is a Rottweiler because Rottweiler’s have very strong jaws and are very large in size. Some examples of the types of injuries that can occur as a result of a Rottweiler bite include bone fractures, cuts and scrapes, brain injuries caused by being thrown forcefully to the ground, and various types of scarring and disfigurement.
If you have been the victim of one or more of these injuries as a result of a dog bite on public property or when lawfully visiting private property, you may have a legal claim for personal injuries against the owner for damages.
