In the Media: President Obama’s family dog bit a family friend in the WhiteHouse this week. The family dog, Sunny, is four years old and has yet to be aggressive. TMZ reported the family friend went to pet and kiss Sunny, and then Sunny bit her on the face. The result was a small gash below her right eye. The family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, confirmed that she will be needing stitches.
Dog bites can be an extremely traumatic experience. Dog bites can cause scarring and injuries that could last a lifetime. Some dog bite injuries require plastic surgery to heal the wound. Medical expenses and treatment prices can be astronomical. Victims of these injuries deserve aggressive legal representation to ensure fair compensation for all of their past and future medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. All dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. If you have been attacked or bitten by a dog, please consider contacting our law office for a free case consultation to review your rights.
