My granddaughter was bit by her father's dog. She is 3 years old. She was on her court ordered visitation. He lives in Crown Point, Indiana. He neglected taking her to the emergency room. I live in Adrian Mi.. When he returned her home i took her to the emergency room. She was bit on the face from a big mixed lab dog. She has puncture wounds and scars are developing. She got bit about a week ago. I'm in fear of her having to go back to his house. Im in fear that his dog will attack her again. I did call animal control and i made a DCS report. Animal control went to his house and told him to quarantine his dog for 10 days and then someone will be giving him a temper test after that. Annabelle is now scared of dogs. She's goes to her father's every other week so she will be visiting shortly again. I have several pictures of the bite to her face. I want to sue him for pain and suffering and for neglecting to take her to the hospital when she clearly needed to go. And if i can sue him for anything else i would like to take part in that as well.

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
