Psychological Injuries Suffered from Dog Bites
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) | Cynophobia | Agoraphobia
It’s an unfortunate reality that often the most devastating and long-lasting wounds are the ones you can’t see—that’s particularly true when you’ve been the victim of a dog bite. It’s not uncommon to experience PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, with symptoms such as nightmares, anxiety, flashbacks and panic attacks.

Helping You Recover For Psychological Injuries Caused by a Dog Bite
We provide full-service legal counsel to people who have suffered psychological consequences as the result of a dog bite. We handle cases involving:
- Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) — PTSD can take many forms, including sleep disorders, mood swings, flashbacks and nightmares, irrational thoughts, eating disorders and guilt/depression
- Cynophobia — A fairly common psychological condition that arises after a dog bite is the development of an irrational fear of dogs, which can manifest in nausea, panic attacks and uncontrollable shaking.
- Agoraphobia — For some dog bite victims, the fear is more pervasive, making it difficult for them to leave their homes
We will help you pursue compensation for all your losses, including wages and income, physical and psychological pain and suffering, loss of companionship or consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and unreimbursed medical expenses.
