In order to receive compensation You may need be able to prove that all the medical bills you incurred were connected with the bite of a dog.

If you wait to seek medical attention, it could make it harder for you to establish that the dog attack is the reason for your injuries.
If victims are forced to leave work to undergo medical reasons, treatment or recuperation the victim is entitled to reimbursement for the loss of income. If the injury affects their ability to work in the near future it is also their right to be paid for the future loss of income (referred to as"loss of earning capacity") "loss of earning capability").
A person may experience emotional trauma when they are the victim of an injury or experience another type of trauma. It includes emotional pain and suffering, anxiety, fear, humiliation/embarrassment, etc. A child, for instance, who sees a friend being victimized by a dog could be in emotional distress due to the incident.
If the injury had an effect upon the bond between dog bite sufferers and spouses of the victims, they can be compensated in the form of "loss of consortium" that is a term used to describe loss of friendship or intimacy. Certain states also offer compensation for the effect on the relationship between a parent and their child when one is injured.
States that adhere to the principle of pure comparative negligence, as in Kranj,5 limit the amount a plaintiff can recover by the percentage of the fault.
