Common Dog Attack Injuries

A dog might be considered "man's best friend, but that doesn't mean they're not dangerous. Halvorsen Klote's dog bite attorneys know how victims and their families can be affected after an incident. For instance, here are some of the most common injuries related to dog bites:

  • Rabies
  • Nerve Damage
  • Scarring
  • Facial Injuries
  • Puncture Wounds
  • Broken Bones
  • Emotional Trauma
  • Infection

Too often, people stereotype certain dog breeds. There are facts to back this stigma, but it's not always the case. Any dog is able to bite a person. This can be attributed to the dog's environment and interaction with the victim.

Breeds that are often associated with bite include (in no particular order) bull terriers, cocker spaniels, jack russells, German shepherds, pit bulls, bulldogs, and even chihuahuas. The size and age of the dog rarely matters; the important thing to keep in mind is how a dog was raised and how you interact with the dog. People have the same tendency to attack others when they're scared or aggravated. You should be mindful of a dog's breed, not afraid of it.


What Do I Do if I'm Bitten by a Dog?

The first step, of course, is to get medical attention. You or any other victim's safety is paramount. If you're seeking future reimbursement for your injuries, having medical records is incredibly important. Contacting our dog bite lawyers should be your second priority.

It's usually better to settle a case out of court. Trials can take a long time before anyone reaches a decision. Each case is different and there are advantages to go to trial or accept an immediate settlement.
