Dog Bite Injury


An attack by a dog can cause many different types of dog bite injury:

  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Punctures
  • Tissue loss and avulsion
  • Crush injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Sprain/strain injuries
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Infections such as rabies, cellulitis, C canimorsus infections
  • Emotional distress

Victims of dog bite injuries to the face, especially with children, should be examined immediately for nerve damage and facial fractures. In additional to the physical injuries from a dog bite, there is a high potential of psychological injury. This can include a fear of dogs, a fear of the outdoors, social effects of a disfiguring injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Injuries can be frightening and confusing, and the personal injury lawyers at Beament Hebert Nicholson can help you and your family deal with the medical and legal ramifications.
