Dangers of Dog Bite Attacks
Victims of dog bites often suffer physical injuries and great anxiety and anguish after the traumatic dog bite event. Both large and small dogs can severely impact someone in an attack. Children are most commonly attacked or bit by dogs, but aggressive dogs can injure anyone. If you or a loved one was injured in a dog bite attack, there are emotional impacts, physical dangers, and financial costs after a dog bite injury.
Emotional Impacts of A Dog Bite Attack
Dog bites are especially scary, saddening, and traumatic because people look to pets for companionship. The last thing a family wants is an injury occurring as a result from an animal attack. Dog bite attacks can happen suddenly, yet they leave lasting emotional impacts such as:
- Loss of companionship and love
- Emotional anguish during the healing process
Physical Dangers of a Dog Bite Attack
On top of the emotional anguish caused by dog bite attacks, physical injuries are incredibly harmful if someone is seriously mauled. Especially dangerous due to potential diseases and illnesses, dog bite attacks cause an immense list of injuries such as:
- Risk of infection
- Risk of rabies infection
- Blood loss
- Brain trauma due to a fall
- Broken or fractured bones
- Deep cuts and lacerations
- Muscle and tendon damage from bites
- Neck and spinal cord damage
- Would infections
Financial Cost of A Dog Bite Attack
Depending on the severity of your injuries after a dog bite attack, the cost for treatment can be quite high. On the less severe end, doctors will need to clean, dress, or stitch a wound. However, injuries such as neck and spinal cord damage, broken bones, or disfigurement can cause bills and seeking medical help to rise quickly.
Age is also a variable when recovering from a dog bite attack. Children tend to recover quicker, yet their injuries can be more severe. Older adults tend to recover at a slower pace, therefore accruing more medical bills.
