Small children can make quick, darting movements that might startle a dog, provoking it to attack.

Children often engage in behaviors that may trigger a dog attack, such as running toward a chained dog, trying to pet or hug an unfamiliar animal, or trying to pull a dog’s tail or ears.

Do I Really Need a Dog Bite Lawyer?
If you have suffered any injury - including a dog bite - that you believe was due to someone else's negligence, you absolutely need legal representation. Even if you have health insurance, you can expect that you will pay a deductible out of pocket for certain expenses. If your bite injury causes psychological trauma, there is no guarantee that your policy will cover the cost of mental health care. As a victim, you should not have to shoulder these expenses.
Of course, even if the dog owner's insurance policy covers a dog bite that occurs on their property, you can rest assured that their insurance company will try to convince you to accept a very low payout. Then again, regardless of where the bite injury occurs, it's entirely possible that the owner won't accept any responsibility at all unless you take legal action.
Don't leave your livelihood or your quality of life to chance. With dog bite lawyer Lynn Harris on your side, he can prove who is responsible for your losses, the true extent of those losses, and how these losses will continue to affect you for years to come.
