Kitsap County Dog Bite Lawyer
Injured by a vicious dog? Get help from our professional Kitsap County
dog bite attorney.
At Ramirez & Walker, Inc., our legal team has the background and record
of success you want on your side in a dog bite injury case. Any person
who owns a dog can be held responsible for the dog's actions, and
should be. An animal that is dangerous that has been left to roam is an
extreme danger to those in the area.
Sadly, many dog attacks lead to
severe injuries or
death, and children are more likely to be attacked than adults. The shorter
height of a young child allows a dog to inflict injuries to the head,
scalp, neck and upper torso. Dog bite injuries are extremely dangerous,
as they are very susceptible to serious infection, and the risk of rabies
must also be explored on an immediate basis.

Knowing How to Effectively Deal with Your Case
If you or someone you love has been bitten by a vicious dog, the costs
of medical treatment will be extensive. Ripped skin and muscle tissue,
torn ligaments and other damage can be expensive and difficult to treat,
as well as:
- Rabies treatment
- Plastic surgeries
- Treating any infection that may have occurred
Tetanus and sepsis can be transmitted to a human from a dog bite, and there
are many other possible complications. An estimated one-quarter to one-third
of healthy dogs have a bacteria,
Capnocytophaga canimorsus, in their saliva. This is a deadly bacteria that
often results in serious complications that are very difficult to treat,
and can lead to the need to amputate. Any dog bite should be treated immediately
by a qualified physician, even if small, due to the dangers of these bacteria
entering the body of the victim.
