Dog Attack in Howard County


Dog attacks a three-year-old boy in Howard County, Missouri this past week. The 3-year-old suffered a fractured eye socket and required 25 stitches when a German Shepherd repeatedly bit the young boy in the face. The boy was rushed to University of Missouri Women's and Children's Hospital where he was given a rabies shot and treated for his injuries. Doctors are hopeful the boy will recover without any permanent disfigurement. The child is recovering at home now.

Injuries such as these are usually the result of the negligence of another individual. Unfortunately, most of the time a young child suffers catastrophic injuries as a result of being attacked by a dog. It is important to seek medical attention immediately and to file a police report.

If you or a loved one are brutually attacked by a dog, please contact a Columbia personal injury attorney at the firm for legal representation.
