Dogs are man’s best friend. But all dogs—no matter how friendly or domesticated—still have the potential to bite. Dog bites can range in severity from minor cuts to life-threatening injuries. Some dog bites can even prevent victims from returning to work for long periods of time.

Complications of Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can cause serious health complications, including:

  • Bleeding
    Dogs’ teeth can puncture deep into the skin and cause severe and even life-threatening bleeding in dog bite victims.
  • Infection
    Dogs may have dangerous bacteria in their mouths that can enter the bloodstream. These bacteria can multiply and cause infections.
  • Nerve Damage
    Severe dog bites can cut through muscle and damage sensitive nerves. If nerves are damaged, it can cause permanent disability.

Dog bite injuries can cause severe physical and emotional pain. And if you were bitten, it can be difficult for you to work and earn the paychecks you depend on to put food on the table. Our lawyers are determined to help you get money for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, while you or your child recover from a dog bite injury.
