Photographer loses part of ear to dog bite

Lawyers and Settlements recently reported that a photographer lost part of her right ear due to a dog bite injury last year. The dog bite injury required her to completely amputate her right ear and she has required reconstructive surgery. A dog bite injury lawsuit was filed at the end of November states that the victim was working a dog show at a county fairgrounds in January 2010, which was hosted by the county dog fanciers association. The dog bite personal injury lawsuit was filed against the dog’s owner, not against the county dog fanciers association. The personal injury lawsuit alleges that a dog attacked the victim without provocation while she was working the show.

The injured resident claims that a significant portion of her right ear, almost 4 centimeters, was ripped off during her dog bite personal injury. After the amputation, the dog bite injury plaintiff required reconstructive surgery. The dog bite injury lawsuit seeks more than $25,000 in damages against the dog’s owner.

Lawsuits involving personal injuries sustained from dog bites have resulted in the banning of certain breeds altogether in some cities. For example, Denver has completely banned the Pit Bull breed altogether. In San Francisco, Pit Bulls are allowed, but are required to be spayed or neutered immediately. Unfortunately, some pitbulls are raised to be violent. For example, Chicago Sheriff Tom Dart recently broke up a pitbull ring in Maywood that resulted in seven felony arrests. One of the dogs was bred to be a killer, whereas the other one was not.
