The physical injuries that result from a dog bite can require extensive medical care. Victims often suffer a range of injuries, including:
- Puncture wounds
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Torn skin
- Nerve damage
- Muscle damage
Scarring is also a major concern after a dog bite. Physical injuries can result in serious scarring that may require multiple plastic surgeries.
Dog bites and animal attacks can also inflict emotional and mental injuries. Individuals may experience an increased fear of dogs, anxiety around animals and other emotional distress due to the trauma they suffered during the attack. These injuries must be addressed by medical professionals and can be the basis for seeking compensation from the negligent owner of the Rottweiler, pit bull or other dog or animal that bit you.
