Common dog bite injuries

A wound from a dog bite can be devastating– and the reality is that any dog could cause significant damage under the wrong circumstances. The bite of a small dog to the face could lead to permanent disfigurement, while a bite to the hand could cause lasting nerve damage.

Yet, the threat from larger dogs is even greater. These animals could do significant harm, and in some cases, the injuries could be fatal. Some of the most common are:

  • Cuts and puncture wounds
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Infection
  • Rabies
  • Tendon and ligament damage
  • Blood loss
  • Nerve damage

While not every dog bite is catastrophic, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately. Even seemingly minor injuries could result in a serious infection. Once your medical treatment has been handled, your next call should be to our dog bite law firm.

What to do following a dog attack

This often occurs without warning. In some cases, a heretofore docile or friendly animal could become aggressive. Following a bite, it is important that you maintain a clear head and follow these steps:

  • Seek medical treatment immediately
  • Contact law enforcement and report the attack
  • Collect the contact information of anyone that witnessed the attack
  • Write down your recollection of what happened, including a description of the dog
  • Document your injuries with photographs
