Children have always been attracted to dogs. These furry little creatures are playful and sweet on television, but in reality, some dogs can cause significant injuries to your little one. A dog that is very protective of itself, its territory, and its family is often dangerous. As a result, dogs can lash out at children deemed to be a threat. At Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, our Sioux Falls personal injury lawyers have seen catastrophic personal injuries caused by dogs. That is why we feel it is important that you teach your children how to be safe around dogs, whether your own dog or one that is new to them.

Be sure that your child does not:

  • Put his face in the dog’s face
  • Approach or run towards a strange dog
  • Tease, startle, or disturb a dog, particularly one that has puppies
  • Play with an overly-excited dog
  • Ignore snarls, growls, or barking when approaching a dog

These rules are meant to keep your children safe when they see a dog, as dogs that feel jealous or threatened may bite or attack. Don’t let your child be injured by a dog, as an injury could be catastrophic, particularly one to the face or neck.

Call to speak with a South Dakota personal injury attorney at Zimmer, Duncan, and Cole, LLP, if you or your child has been the victim of a dog attack anywhere in the state. Our experienced lawyers in Sioux Falls and Parker are ready to assist you and your family. Call our office toll-free at (888) 733-2992; we will hold the owner liable for your pain and suffering.
