Over the past several years, there have been more and more reported cases of dog bites. Unfortunately, the damages that are caused by dog bites can be more than just physical. As a dog bite injury attorney, we know that some suffer great emotional stress as well. But the physical injuries that one can sustain from a dog bite can range from minuscule to extremely severe.

Common Severe Dog Bite Injuries

  • Abrasions
  • Punctures/Lacerations
  • Scars
  • Sprains/strain injuries
  • Infections (i.e. rabies, cellulitis, C. canimorsus infections, etc.)
  • Tissue loss and avulsions
  • Fractured bones

If you have suffered from any of the above, please seek the care of a medical professional right away. Delaying it will only create an opportunity for infections to arise and spread.
