Typical Damages from a Dog Bite Attack

Dog attacks can be so severe that the victim suffers one or more fatal injuries as a result. Most often these victims are children. It is believed that children may be a common target of dogs because of children’s typical high energy level. Because the height of their head and neck are similar to the height of a dog’s jaws, those areas of the body are most often where the dog bite injuries are located. Head and neck injuries are often more serious than injuries in other areas of the body due to the location of vital organs and major arteries. Even adult victims are susceptible to head and neck injuries if the dog is able to knock them down. Regardless of the nature of your or your child’s injuries, our dog bite lawyer can represent you in seeking compensation for your damages.

These are some of the most common damages associated with dog bite attacks:

  •         Deep lacerations.
  •         Permanent scarring.
  •         Deep puncture marks.
  •         Serious or fatal infections of injury areas.
  •         Loss of a limb either during the attack or later if the limb cannot be saved.
