Injuries Sustained By Dog Bites

Dog bites can be serious and should not be taken lightly. There are serious medical issues that go beyond the initial puncture wounds. Depending on the dog, some victims require stitches for the injuries. In more severe cases, victims have suffered broken bones from the strong jaws of bigger dogs.

Dog bites can also result in infection. Dog's mouths contain many different kinds of bacteria, and when the bacteria enters the vicitm's bloodstream through a puncture wound, infections related to staphylococcus and pasteurella can be life-threatening.

Compensation for Dog Bite Injuries

As discussed previously, the damage caused by dog bite injuries can be quite extensive. Some dog bite injuries can be so severe that they require a trip to the emergency room in an ambulance, surgery, doctor visits, medication, and therapy.
