Columbia Psychological Damage Due to Dog Bite Lawyers
If you or a loved one has suffered psychological damage due to a dog bite or a dog attack, contact the skilled attorneys at Goings Law Firm, LLC for help getting compensation for your injuries. Pet owners have a responsibility to take all precautionary steps to keep their pet from causing anyone any harm. But if they do not do enough to prevent this, they can be held liable for the injuries their pet causes. Although only physical injuries are visible, the psychological damage is a very real consequence of dog attacks. Going through extreme trauma at the hands of a vicious dog can leave victims fearing dogs or cause uncontrollable anxiety.
At Goings Law Firm, LLC, we believe that pet owners who allow their dogs to deal such severe damage to innocent victims should be held responsible for their carelessness. You deserve compensation for your mental suffering, and our Columbia dob bite attorneys are here to help you get it. To find out more about your legal options, contact us today at (803) 350-9230.
Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Cases dealing with psychological or emotional damages are hard to prove because there may not be physical manifestations of the psychological or emotional damage. It can be difficult to place a monetary value on emotional suffering, which can make a lawsuit difficult to bring. Furthermore, arguing that your emotional duress was a direct result of your dog attack is more complicated than arguing that a physical injury was.
However, that does not mean that your trauma is not real, or that you cannot recover compensation. An experienced dog bite lawyer knows the evidence required to effectively argue your claim. They will know exactly how much money to ask for, depending on your particular circumstances. They will fight for your rights after an accident and ensure that you get the money you deserve, which would be much more difficult on your own.

Cases We Handle
Although there can be very serious physical damage resulting from a dog bite, there can also be emotional or psychological damage. Even though you cannot see it, it can affect people very seriously. Some examples include:
- Anxiety: After being a victim of a dog attack, a person can experience anxiety thinking about the incident. Even just returning to the place where it happened can be very stress-inducing to victims. Anxiety causes symptoms like cold and clammy hands and feet, sleep problems, panic, fear, rapid heart rate, nausea, losing appetite or overeating.
- Nightmares: A victim may begin having vivid and terrifying dreams of the attack. Having to relive this while one sleeps can result in insomnia, loss of appetite, lower immune system, or depression.
- Fear of dogs: After a victim has been through a traumatic experience with a dog, they often develop a fear of dogs. In extreme cases, victims may not be able to be in the same room with a dog anymore. Since there are so many dogs everywhere, this can lead the victim to have anxiety when they see one.
- Agoraphobia: Because of the increased anxiety towards dogs, victims can also develop a fear of leaving one’s house. If a person is scared of seeing a dog, they may never want to leave their house. This can completely prevent a person from leading a normal life.
The emotional effects of a dog bite can be extremely debilitating, especially for children whose brains are still developing.
