Woman Suffers Serious Dog Bite Injuries in St. Louis Attack
When a canine attacks, the damage done to a victim can be severe. The St. Louis dog bite lawyers at Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers point out that the injuries sustained by a woman and her daughter in an attack earlier this week highlights this fact.
According to reports from KMOV 4 News, the incident occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 18, at the corner of Ridge and Union in north St. Louis. The mother and daughter were walking their dog along the road when two unrestrained canines approached them. The pair of dogs attacked the mother’s legs, causing her to fall to the ground. She sustained several more bite wounds before the animals retreated.
The victim was taken to a local hospital where she received stitches to her wounds. She says she remains in pain and also fears for her safety until the dogs responsible for the attack are caught.
