Doberman Pinschers and Dangerous Dogs
Doberman Pinschers, a medium-build German breed, are well-known for their potential for aggressive behavior. Even though many of the Doberman’s aggressive traits have been toned down, either through proper training or selective breeding, they still have a reputation for being aggressive toward strangers.
Remember: A dog breed alone doesn’t guarantee that a dog will or won’t be dangerous. A dog that feels threatened, is sick, or that has been abused may bite out of self-defense. A dog owner’s behavior toward his or her dog is the biggest factor in determining whether a dog will be dangerous or not. A dog will be more likely to bite or attack if its owner encourages aggressive behavior.
Doberman Pinscher Dog Attacks – Who’s Responsible?
Usually, the dog’s owner is responsible for the actions of his or her Doberman Pinscher. We know that you may not want to seek legal help, because a family member or friend may be the dog owner. But what you may not realize is that when you file a dog bite accident claim, it doesn’t mean that you’ll be facing off against that family member or friend who owns the Doberman Pinscher. Our Pennsylvania attorneys often work to get you compensation through the dog owner’s home insurance provider.
What Should I Do if I’ve Been Bitten by a Doberman Pinscher?
- Get medical help immediately. Depending on the severity of your injuries (or a loved one’s injuries), head to a hospital or call 911. A doctor should inspect all dog bite wounds carefully and document them. Even small cuts and bruises can become infected, and you’ll need those medical records to support your dog bite injury claim.
- Gather as much evidence from your Doberman Pinscher attack as you can. Take photos of the accident scene, pictures of your injuries, and clothing worn during the attack. If you previously contacted the owner of the Doberman Pinscher about the dog’s aggression or wandering without a leash, gather any records you have – including dates and any communication that occurred.
- Contact our attorneys at Edgar Snyder & Associates. We have over 30 years of experience helping victims of dog bite injuries. We have the experience to protect your legal rights and help get you the money you need and deserve.
