11-Year-Old Boy Mauled By Great Dane

South Carolina dog bite lawyers know that large, violent dogs are often capable of harming people, especially young children. You are protected under the law in these kinds of attacks, and the dog owner is legally liable for injuries caused by their dog. In some cases, if you are a victim of a dog bite you can recover compensation from a person whose negligence caused the attack or a person who violated a leash law, a trespass law applicable to dogs, or any other dog safety laws. Just recently, an 11-year-old boy was attacked by a Great Dane while at a dog walk in Oklahoma. According to police, Troy Helms was in attendance at the Strut Your Mutt dog walk when he fell down and was mauled by the dog. Helms received over 100 stitches for his injuries.

The dog walk was sponsored by the local Humane Society. Witnesses told authorities that after the dog was pulled off the child, its owner quickly left with the dog. The owner was issued a citation for the attack. Organizers of the event are also discussing precautions they can take to prevent future attacks.
