When a pet or wild dog attacks, the vicious, snarling animal leaves a lasting impression and deep wounds that are both physical and psychological. It’s important that you work with your attorney to find out how you can be compensated for not only the physical wounds, but also the psychological suffering your child may be going through.
Post-traumatic stress is a life-altering condition that needs medical help. Those suffering from it have a risk of depression, anxiety, and other conditions, so it’s important that psychotherapy and other kinds of treatments are used. Once the condition is identified, it can take months, years, or even a lifetime to overcome the stress and anxiety of being near animals again, but it can help the patient cope, and that’s the entire goal.
Our website has more information on dog attacks and how to get compensated appropriately. Your child shouldn’t have to suffer without the mental health treatments available.
