Dog Bite Injuries
For some dogs, their bark is worse than their bite. However, there are dogs that aren’t harmless and do bite. Canines can occasionally exhibit aggressive and territorial behaviors. This is escalated if the owner hasn’t properly trained their dog.
If a dog has bitten you, we recommend calling our legal professionals for a free case review. There’s no obligation to use our services when you call. It’s quick, easy, and absolutely free.
Types of Dog Bite Injuries
Dog attacks can lead to many types of different injuries and can vary in levels of severity. Some dog bites can cause permanent scarring or tissue damage.
Common dog bite injuries are:
- Puncture wounds
- Broken bones
- Eye injuries
- Head and Neck Injuries
- Face Injuries
- Nerve Damage
- Emotional Effects
Each situation is unique. In some cases, unleashed dogs don’t have to bite to cause harm. If you were injured while running away or were knocked down by an aggressive dog, you could still be entitled to money for your injuries.
According to the Center For Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 900,000 of those bites become infected. The U.S. population is approximately 325.8 million people as of 2017. That means a dog bites 1 out of every 72 people.
