Abogado en Atlanta: Ataques de Perros

Los dueños de perros no sólo son responsables de mantener a sus mascotas a salvo, sino también de que éstas no causen daños a terceros. Los Pit Bulls y otros perros de razas grandes, consideradas en algunos casos potencialmente peligrosas, pueden causar lesiones graves si atacan. Se estima que, en la actualidad, existen en los Estados Unidos más de 60 millones de perros que son mascotas. La inmensa mayoría tiene dueños responsables que se aseguran de que sus perros tengan el entrenamiento adecuado y estén controlados para evitar lesiones a otros o al mismo animal. Desafortunadamente, también existen dueños irresponsables de mascotas que pueden llegar a poner a otros en riesgo de sufrir lesiones por un ataque canino, al no tomar las medidas adecuadas que lo eviten.

De acuerdo con el portal dogbite.org, se estima que aproximadamente 1,000 estadounidenses son atendidos cada día en centros de atención de urgencias por mordeduras de perros. Además, en promedio, 9,500 personas son hospitalizadas cada año por lesiones sufridas por ataques de este tipo de animales, registrándose incluso 39 muertes en 2017. Estas estadísticas revelan la frecuencia de las lesiones por mordedura de perro en las que, si bien muchas de ellas ocurren a miembros de la familia conviviente con el mismo animal, otras tantas afectan a visitantes de la casa o a extraños en la calle. Cuando un perro ataca o muerde a una persona, el dueño es responsable de cualquier lesión causada por éste.

Tipos de lesiones por mordeduras de perros

Evidentemente, una mordedura de perro implica dientes y perforaciones en la piel de la víctima. Cualquier perro, de cualquier tamaño, puede causar daño en la piel y en tejidos debido a su mordedura. Según el Centro de Control de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés), las víctimas de mordeduras de perros también deben preocuparse por las infecciones y enfermedades que pudieran transmitirse, incluso en casos de mordeduras pequeñas como, por ejemplo, la rabia, SARM (Staphylococcus aureus resistente a la meticilina), el tétanos y la infección por pasteurella, entre otras. Además, las razas grandes como pitbulls, rottweilers y pastores alemanes pueden causar lesiones adicionales cuando atacan, entre las que destacamos:

  • Fracturas óseas
  • Muerte
  • Desfiguración
  • Cicatrices
  • Desgarro de tejidos y músculos

Las lesiones por ataques de perros pueden requerir atención médica prolongada que incluya intervenciones quirúrgicas, medicamentos, hospitalizaciones y cirugías estéticas. Casi la mitad de las víctimas de ataques de perros son niños, lo que provoca que pudieran tener que vivir con las cicatrices producidas por el resto de sus vidas. Si usted o su hijo han sido víctimas de un ataque de perro, necesita conocer sus derechos, así que comuníquese hoy mismo con el bufete legal que Dwayne L. Brown tiene en Atlanta, donde analizaremos su caso y las opciones de presentar una demanda por lesiones provocadas por un ataque de perro o la reclamación para que reciba la indemnización que le compense por el daño sufrido.
