Dog Bite Injuries – Are They Serious?

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

If you or someone you know has been bitten by a dog and you feel pain of any kind –  we want you to please be aware of the following:

  • 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.

If you or someone you know has suffered serious injuries due to another homeowner’s dog, please contact us.  Silverthorne Attorneys will give you a free consultation to see if we can handle your case today!
