The Most Common Injuries Caused by a Dog Bite
When a dog attacks and bites you, it can have a wide range of consequences:
- Puncture wounds — These are most common on arms, legs and hands, but may occur anywhere a dog can get its jaws on you
- Broken bones — A dog with powerful jaws can break bones in your hands, fingers and even your arms
- Head and face injuries — Damage to ears, eyes, nose and mouth
- Nerve damage — The sharp teeth of a dog can inflame or bruise nerve endings, leading to loss of feeling, numbness and tingling
- Rabies — A rabid dog can infect you. The treatment of a rabies infection can be long and painful.
- Permanent scarring and disfigurement — Whether it’s a puncture or a tear (laceration), your skin may become discolored or have a different texture, leaving visible scars
- Emotional and psychological injury — A dog bite can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an irrational fear of dogs (cynophobia), or even an unwillingness to leave your home (agoraphobia)
At Bailey & Galyen, we’ll help you pursue damages for all your losses, including wages and income, loss of enjoyment of life, unreimbursed medical expenses, loss of consortium or companionship, and physical/emotional pain and suffering. We handle claims involving any type or degree of injury, from soft-tissue trauma to serious and catastrophic loss, or even wrongful death.
