You certainly don't need to be reminded of the destructive power of a dog's teeth and jaws. Even small dogs have enough jaw power to do significant damage through an angry bite.
Dog bite attacks often result in significant skin damage. And quite frequently, our clients have to deal with significant facial injuries after these attacks.
Our New Jersey dog attack attorney has seen too many innocent victims with permanent, disfiguring facial injuries after a dog bite. These cases are tragic, and they require a firm, passionate lawyer to handle them properly.

Difficult Dog Attack Injuries
It can be difficult to protect your face during a dog attack, even though most people instinctively try to do so. A dog's powerful teeth and sharp claws are exceptionally dangerous, and they can overcome your attempts to cover your face.
This is especially a problem when you are attacked by a large dog, as these breeds are capable of knocking victims to the ground and, frighteningly, coming face-to-face with the victim. But any variety of dog can do severe damage to the skin and underlying structure of your face.
Facial injuries from dog attacks come in several different forms, including:
Lacerations and puncture wounds that can require many stitches to fix
Damage to the underlying tendons, ligaments, muscles and nerves that provide definition and support for your face
Broken bones, especially in the nose and ears
Obviously, these injuries are all quite serious. Many of them are permanent and disfiguring. Those injuries that can be fixed require extensive, expensive medical care to do so.
Our dog attack attorney doesn't think it's right that you should bear the financial burden of an attack that wasn't your fault. Mr. Cowhey will fight for you, your rights and the compensation you deserve. He knows how to successfully battle the insurance companies on behalf of innocent victims like you.
