Understanding The Severity Of Dog Bite Injuries And Complications

Depending on the severity of the bite, the location of the bite and the dog's health, a victim may experience a range of injuries and complications from a dog bite, including:

  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Infection
  • Tissue or nerve damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Disabilities or impairments
  • Future emotional distress such as a fear of dogs

Quite often, children are bitten. A dog bite may have a larger impact on a young victim. We handle cases for victims of all ages, including children.

How Strict Liability Works In Dog Bite Cases

Dog owners are strictly liable. This means the dog owner is responsible for controlling the dog and preventing any attacks. This is true even if the dog was not on the owner's property and the dog was on your property, it is still the responsibility of the owner to protect others from his or her dog.
